Synopsis
High school student Riff Randell's attempts to meet the rock group the Ramones are constantly blocked by the school principal Evelyn Togar. Ms. Togar believes that rock and roll music is determental to teenagers, so much so that she conducts lab experiments on rats to prove her theory. Riff keeps trying to outsmart her zealous principal, which eventually leads to the students taking over the school and the Ramones being made honorary students.
