Pump Up The Volume (1990)

Shat The Movies didn’t invent sexual perversion, edgy attitudes and impeccable taste in music, we just perfected it. More than 25 years earlier, Christian Slater inspired teens to “talk hard” in the 1990 box office bomb “Pump Up The Volume.”

Ash was delighted when listener Eric commissioned this coming-of-age movie to highlight his belief in the power of listening. Dick Ebert viewed it from a parent’s perspective, and Gene was aghast at Happy Harry Hard-on’s terrible microphone discipline. 

As the Shat Crew debate whether a teen can suffer in the affluent suburbs, they touch on the King of Teen Angst, rites of passage, how to unmask a pirate-radio host, microwave explosions and whether “Pump Up The Volume” is just “Footloose” minus the dancing.
