No relation to the song from the ''{{Initial D}}'' soundtrack. Or the Music/BruceSpringsteen's one, part of ''Darkness on the Edge of Town''.

* FakeBand: Ellen Aim and the Attackers, and the Sorels. The band playing at Torchy's? Those were the Blasters, a ''real'' BadAss rockabilly group.

** The cover art for ''Act [=II=]: The Father of Death'', by Music/TheProtomen, is directly inspired by the movie poster. And the track ''Light up the Night'' is incredibly similar to ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEV1B7RcJC4 Nowhere Fast]]''.

* GenreShift

to:

* GenreShiftGenreBusting: Hill likes to say that all his movies could be considered Westerns, and it shows; the rough and roguish gunslinger with complicated ethics, the damsel in distress, the showdown with the head bandit. But there's also 50's greaser punks and car chases, 80's-style crime drama and music, and a post-apocalyptic/cyberpunk vibe in that the authorities are only present to show how useless they are. And somehow, it all just ''works.''



-->'''Billy Fish:''' "Listen, Tom... I won't stand in your way with Ellen. I know how things are between you two."
-->'''Tom Cody:''' (after a beat) "I'd only slow her down. Besides, she needs you more than she needs me."
-->'''Billy Fish:''' "Sure, she needs me... but she ''loves'' you!"
-->'''Tom Cody:''' "She'll get over it. Besides, she's used to me being unreliable and disappearing on her."
-->'''Billy Fish:''' "Is that what I'm supposed to tell her?"
-->'''Tom Cody:''' (shrugs) "You're better with words than I am."

* {{Badass}}: Where to start. Tom Cody, [=McCoy=], Raven, Officer Price, Greer and most of the rest of the Bombers. Hell even Ed Begley Jr. played a {{Badass}} homeless guy. Even Billy Fish, the NonActionGuy (played by Creator/RickMoranis, no less), has a lot of guts.

* PercussivePrevention: Tom [[WouldHitAGirl punches Ellen]] across the face to [[TapOnTheHead knock her out]] so she would stop fussing and he could focus on saving them.

* 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.
