YMMV: Streets of Fire
  • Awesome Music: All of it really but especially the two songs at the end
  • Ear Worm: "Let the revels begin, let the fire be started, we're dancing for the restless and the brokenhearted; let the revels begin, let the fire be started, we're dancing for the desperate and the brokenhearted..."
  • Evil Is Cool: Raven and the Bombers. Leather and bikes make for a very good combination.
  • Face of the Band: Ellen Aim is the lead vocals for the Attackers. Stoney Jackson is the lead vocals for the Sorels.
  • Fashion-Victim Villain: Raven and his gang.
  • For the Evulz: Raven and his gang steal Ellen and pillage for not much if any motivation.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: This film was very popular in Japan and even influenced many anime and the video game Final Fight.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • About halfway into the sledgehammer fight, the music turns really creepy.
    • Ellen's kidnapping at the beginning of the film.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Robert Townsend. The film came before he struck it big with Hollywood Shuffle.
  • So Cool It's Awesome
  • Tear Jerker: The ending. The music helps a lot.
    • Both ending songs qualify.
    But I can dream about you if I can't hold you tonight...
    • Ellen calling out Tom in the rain.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The explosions!
