The Horshack Redemption #28: Savage Streets (1984)

The Professor and Gilligan discuss their top 3 cowbell songs of all time, then dive in to the trashy cult classic Street Trash (1984) starring Linda Blair.  Along the way, there's the usual discussions on gratuitous nudity, pop culture connections, and - of course- the drinking game.  Come along for the ride - download it or listen on iTunes, Stitcher, the website, on the Facebook page, or right here one Retrospace.

As always, read on for the screen shot gallery. Enjoy!

Blair and her hoodlum friends cruise down Hollywood Blvd. with Blair's deaf/mute sister (Linnea Quigley).

Blair's arch rival at school is the Miss Popular cheerleader, Cindy.

Isn't this what your gym class looked like in high school?

Deaf/mute Linnea gets sweet-talked by one of the drug-dealing thugs, then she gets horribly, and graphically,.... well, you'll just need to see the movie.

Meanwhile, Blair battles Cindy in the requisite shower scene.  The Professor ranks this as cinema's greatest shower scene in history.

Blair finds out what they did to her deaf/mute sister, and she's none too pleased.  There's gonna be hell to pay.

Jake clearly has anger issues.  In this scene he literally picks Blair's friend up like King Kong and throws her from a bridge.

Perhaps the film's finest moment: the poetry lesson.

Cindy is busy pissing of Blair - a mistake she'll have to pay for.... pay with her tank top.  Truly one of the most gratuitous nude scenes I've ever witnessed.

It's killin' time, and Blair is out for blood.  You won't want to miss this episode where The Professor and I dissect this cult classic piece by piece.  Have a listen!


  1. My top cowbell song: "I'm A Man" by the Spencer Davis Group.

  2. "Grazing in the Grass" by Hugh Masekala. It is more jazz than rock, but probably has the maximum amount of cowbell in a song. Bruce Dickenson would be proud of the cowbell player on the song. None of the cover versions come close to the amount of hyperactive cowbell playing that is in the original 1969 number one hit.

  3. lol! #gimmesomefoghatbitch!

  4. That cowbell bit is one of the funniest things I've heard in the longest time. LMAO so hard that I had to recover before getting to the actual movie discussion.

  5. The song Low Rider is used when Wooderson, Mitch Kramer and Randall Pink Floyd are cruising in the car and Wooderson asks Mitch "if he's cool."
