10 Best Punk Rock Movies to Watch


Valley Girl (1983)

The premise: In this SoCal take on Romeo and Juliet, Deborah Foreman (now 59) stars as the titular popular high-school student from the San Fernando Valley, opposite Nicolas Cage (now 58), in his first major film role, as an angsty punk boy from the wrong side of the tracks — well, more like the wrong side of the Hollywood Hills. Despite Cage’s punk leanings, the film is better remembered for popularizing Valleyspeak lingo like “gag me” and “for sure.”

Listen to: The soundtrack definitely skews new wave, with songs by Modern English, Men at Work, and Sparks, but the Psychedelic Furs’ “Love My Way” offers a touch of British post-punk.
