Last line ... they co-opted "The Only Band That Matters" from the Clash... to the Smiths ... to Twisted Sister. That's just wrong, man. That said, I'll prolly watch this movie anyway.

The director was also interviewed on SiriusXM "First Wave" this morning by Lori Majewski on "Lust For Lists". Seems like the flick was a real labor of love - can't wait to check it out. Hopefully it is as good as some of the other 80s-based comedy movies like Grosse Point Blank and Hot Tub Time Machine
