YMMV: Pump Up The Volume
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The movie has a legitimately awesome soundtrack, featuring the Cowboy Junkies covering Robert Johnson, Concrete Blonde covering Leonard Cohen, the Beastie Boys, Sonic Youth, Soundgarden, Was (Not Was), and The Pixies contributing a different arrangement of their "Wave of Mutilation". The Beastie Boys track that Mark plays in the film is a legitimately obscure bootleg called "The Scenario" that actually was left off their first album due to Executive Meddling.
  • Fridge Logic: So, uh, where the hell did they get the giant penis in the middle of the night?
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: This is sort of an informal bookend with Heathers, in regard to Slater's films and the subject of teenage suicide.
    We're all worried, we're all in pain. That just comes with having eyes and having ears. But just remember one thing - it can't get any worse, it can only get better. High school is the bottom, being a teenager sucks, but that's the point, surviving it is the whole point. Quitting is not going to make you stronger, living will. So just hang on and hang in there.
