* If you're going to call your movie a 'rock and roll fable' (which the title card does), you have better have a truly fist-pumping, kickass soundtrack. And this movie delivers, in spades. If the music has a familiar "feel" to it, that's because the opening and closing songs are by Jim Steinman, the genius behind a few things you might have heard of: Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out for a Hero" and "Total Eclipse of The Heart," and most of MeatLoaf's "Bat Out Of Hell" trilogy.
* It starts off with the opening song, "Nowhere Fast", and ends with the closer, "Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young".
* In between, you've got the Fixx, the Blasters (twice), Ry Cooder, and an entire album-full of fantastic music.
