* PlayingAgainstType: Rick Moranis as the popular, powerful, and surprisingly street-smart Billy Fish. The role definitely makes for a double-take for anyone used to Rick Moranis' typecast HollywoodNerd roles.

The song "Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young", which plays in the ending scene and over the credits (and whose title also appeared as the tagline for the film) was later adapted into "Der Tanz der Vampire" ("The Dance of the Vampires") in the German-language stage musical Theatre/TanzDerVampire.

From Walter Hill, the director of ''Film/TheWarriors'' and ''Film/FortyEightHours'', ''Streets of Fire'' is a 1984 film, described as a "Rock'n'Roll Fable". Its setting is a kind of AlternateUniverse, a mix of an over-the-top 50s and a dystopian near-future as seen from the 80s; a card in the opening title sequence tells us it's set in "another time, another place." The charm of this film lies in its darkly beautiful shots with lots of shadow and smoke and piercing colors, the comic-book style storytelling, and fantastic music, and it is especially [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff popular in Japan]], despite having no initial success, commercially or critically. Notably, ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'', ''VideoGame/FinalFight'', and ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' were influenced by this film -- not to mention the ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage'' series.

* DidNotGetTheGirl: More like 'Didn't Want The Girl'; Tom loved her, and Billy even offered to stand down, but Cody wasn't the kind of man to be a groupie. He ''does'' drive off with the girl sidekick, though she keeps protesting that he's "not her type."
