Rock 'n' Roll High School

Rock 'n' Roll High School ★★★ 1979 (PG)

The music of the Ramones highlights this non-stop high-energy cult classic about a high school out to thwart the principal at every turn. If it had been made in 1957, it would have been the ultimate rock 'n' roll teen movie. As it is, its 1970s' milieu works against it, but the performances are perfect for the material and the Ramones are great. Songs include “Teenage Lobotomy,” “Blitzkrieg Bop,” “I Wanna Be Sedated,” and the title track, among others. Followed less successfully by “Rock 'n' Roll High School Forever.” ♫Teenage Lobotomy; Blitzkrieg Bop; I Wanna Be Sedated; Rock and Roll High School. 94m/C VHS, DVD, UMD . P.J.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
