"Every girl should be given an electric guitar on her 16th birthday."

Dare to witness the electrifyingly entertaining rise and fall of the world's ultimate fictional female punk band. Teenage trio The Fabulous Stains (including a teenage Diane Lane and Laura Dern) tear fists-first into the music industry in new wave battlegear, letting nothing stand in the way of their revolutionary assault on a deflating male-dominated record industry. Featuring raging footage of The Looters and Black Randy & The Metrosquad and performances from a young Ray Winstone and Fee Waybill of The Tubes, this legendary battle call to young female rockers, wavers and punks everywhere is a crucial and explosive experience, unstoppably enjoyable and often credited as being a fundamental inspiration to the historic Riot Grrl musical/social movement. "I'm perfect! But nobody in this shithole gets me, because I don't put out!"
