A 'Rock N Rock High School' reunion with P.J. Soles

Rock 'N' Roll High School technically isn't an '80s movie -- alas 1979 was a very good year -- but are there any of us who grew up in the first half of that decade who didn't worship the flick?

Alas, a new 30th anniversary DVD of the flick (yeah, I know. Should be 31 years) is in stores, and star P.J. Soles finds herself talking about the Ramones all over again. Here are some highlights from A.V. Club's excellent interview:

HER FIRST REACTION TO RAMONES MUSIC: "[Director] Allan Arkush had given me a cassette of the Ramones and said, 'You’re their No. 1 fan, so I want you to know all of their songs and fall in love with these guys.' I put the cassette on and I remember running around the house going, 'Oh my God. That’s music?' ”

HER ROYALTIES FROM THE MOVIE: "Four times a year, Warner Bros. Records send out their little statements, and they’re like eight pages with all the countries from all over the world, and I end up getting a check for $48."

SHE HUNG ON TO HER WARDROBE: "I have two pairs of pants, my tight black pants and my grey pants from the opening, and also that red satin jacket with the musical notes."
