20. P.J. SOLES AS RIFF RANDALL IN ROCK ‘N’ ROLL HIGH SCHOOL (1979)Riff Randall doesn’t have time for homework or afterschool groups—she’s too busy sweating Joey Ramone and jamming to her beloved rock music. Figuratively jamming her air guitar up her teachers’ asses, Riff and her fellow juvenile troublemakers eventually bumrush the principal’s office and siege control of their school.
P.J. Soles, one of the ’70s quintessential genre queens, let loose as the obsessive music head; it’s difficult to watch Rock ‘n’ Roll High School and not want to buy some leather pants, grow our hair out, and prowl around Hot Topic to attract her type.
