try these:
     "GOTCHA"
     "PUNK AND DISORDERLY" (a british film)
     "THE YOUNG ONES" (a british situation comedy)
     "SOCIALIZED" (a documentary about the band, _social distortion_)
     "STRIAGHT TO HELL" (starring the clash's joe strummer)
     "URGH!!  A MUSIC WAR" (this must be seen to be explained)
     "WEIRD SCIENCE" (set back in the mid eighties it tries to highlight some)
     "PRETTY IN PINK" (ibid)
     "TAPE HEADS" (a michael nesmith flick... yea the guy from the monkees)
     "ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK" (hmmm....maybe)
     "REPO MAN" (already said but worth repeating... another nesmith flick)
     "BETTER OFF DEAD" (by far a hilarious, yet stupid flick)
and any other teeny-bop film from the mid-eighties. Also try any John Waters(?)
and "Mondo Mike" videotapes. Oh, by the way... try this one, it deals with
the punk scene of venice, CA... "SURF NAZIS MUST DIE" and "NUKE 'EM HIGH".
