Trivia: Airheads

  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Winston Zeddemore is Sgt. O'Malley, and Egon also appears as a "record executive".
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Apparently Fat Tony was once a DJ in Los Angeles.
  • Playing Against Type: Chris Farley, famous for playing larger-than-life characters, as mild-mannered LAPD Officer Wilson.
  • Technology Marches On: Chazz and his band might not have gotten in as much trouble if they had their demo on an iPod or available online. Also, if Kayla had a cell phone, Chazz might have gotten through to her sooner, and might not have needed the LAPD to scour the LA strip to find her.
    • The Lone Rangers could have promoted their music through social media websites, eliminating the need for them to sneak into a radio station.
    • The radio station would likely be going to an all-news format instead of easy listening (or closing completely) as in-car mp3 player options and satellite radio become ever more ubiquitous.
  • Vindicated by Cable: Very few people saw Airheads at the theater. But because it was played so heavily on Comedy Central during the mid-1990s it has managed to become a Cult Classic.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The role of Chazz was originally meant for John Cusack before Brendan Fraser was cast.
    • Cannibal Corpse (who also appeared in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective) was asked if they wanted to have a cameo in the film as the band playing in the Whiskey A Go Go, but they were unable due to being on tour. White Zombie was chosen instead.
