Suburbia (1984)
Synopsis: Suburbia, also known as Rebel Streets and The Wild Side, is a 1984 film written and directed by Penelope Spheeris about suburban punks who run away from home. The kids take up a punk lifestyle by squatting in abandoned suburban tract homes. The punks are played by Chris Pedersen, Bill Coyne, Timothy O'Brien and Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea, amongst others.


Yeah, well, he's from a Third World country. He doesn't have it



What? What the fuck do you know about the third world? You been

there? No? No, well, I have. Fuckers live like sardines in a can

over there, you know. Everything stinks. It's true, there's no,

you know, law, no order. No nothing. The assholes come over here,

they think it's gonna be the same.


Hey, he's a human being you can give him that much.


Actually, the only thing I gotta give that guy is a one-way

ticket back to Greaseball-land.


Yeah, well, that pizza could feed a family of four in Turkey or

India or wherever the fuck he comes from.


Oh yeah? Oh, how'd you ship it over there, man? Federal Express?

Hm? By the time it got there it'd be way cold and coagulated.

Total waste. Cheese be stuck to the cardboard.


Buff, that slice is the difference between life and death for

some half-dead Bangladeshi.


Yo, your gettin' me all upset here.


You should get upset. Everyone should get upset. When, when

Hitler was greasing the Jews, people were saying, "Don't get me

upset. Your bumming me out." My duty as a human being is to be

pissed off. Jesus Christ, not that it makes a difference on the

first fucking place. Nothing ever changes, man. Fifty years from

now we're all gonna be dead and there'll be new people standing

here drinking beer, eating pizza, bitching and moaning about the

price of Oreos, and they won't even know we were ever here. And

then fifty years after that those suckers will be dust and bones

and there'll be all these generations of suckers trying to figure

out what they're doing on this fucking planet and they'll all be

full of shit. It's all so fucking futile.
