Movies With Style: Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains

Arguably one of the best cult punk rock films of all time, at least when it comes to girl punk bands. I think it captures sexism in music very well (something I and other female djs sometimes encounter when we spin, like it is a gimmick or something).
The film's "consultant" was famed punk rock journalist Caroline Coon who was on set to help style the girls and keep authenticity. Starring a teenage Diane Lane and Laura Dern, the movie has an all-star cast of first wave punk rockers and rockers (ex-Sex Pistols Steve Jones and Paul Cook, Paul Simonon from The Clash, Vince Welnick and Fee Waybill from San Francisco's The Tubes, Black Randy from Black Randy and the Metrosquad and some awesome Rasta called Lawnboy).

Here's my Polyvore hommage to Third Degree Burns, all you need is some "skunk" stripes!
