Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains (1981)

Starring a super-young and super-hot Diane Lane, Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains is a tale of teen angst and conformity. It's a punk rock movie in more ways than one. Not only does it feature members of the Sex Pistols but it is also considered to have been a major influence in the Riot Grrl movement of the 80s and 90s. It never actually made it to theaters but it did have a good run on USA's Night Flight and other late-night programs. Yes it is really bad, especially with dialogue and pacing, but fun nonetheless. Until recently it wasn't available on DVD, but thanks to the hard work of two, the support of thousands and this thing called the internet, it finally became available in September.Check out the story behind the movie, as told by two folks who helped to get it released:
