I WAS A TEENAGE QUINCY PUNK

DRESS LIKE A QUINCY PUNK AND GET A FREE QUINCY BUTTON!

If you’re old enough to remember punk rock, then you certainly remember Quincy. And if you care to remember punk rock, then you’ve never forgotten the Quincy Punk Rock episode. Without exaggerating its cultural or historical relevance, it can be said that œNext Stop Nowhere” has remained a kind of inside joke or secret handshake; the term Quincy Punk became part of the vernacular almost overnight. Tonight we celebrate the bastardization of punk rock by clueless TV executives, with a dazzling array of clips including the CHiPS punk episode, the Afterschool special œThe Day My Kid Went Punk and the legendary Quincy episode that started it all.

    I remember the summer of 1987. I lived and went to High School in Lake Arrowhead California. The funniest thing about this after school special is that it was filmed in Lake Arrowhead at the Arrowhead Hilton. The party scene with all the punks jumping around was truely filled with local Arrowhead High School punks. I remember seeing them dol up the main actor with clownlike David Bowie esque makeup and thinking What The Fuck? I would love to get a copy of that so that we could sit around and point out all the “Real” people that were extras. It was great we all got paid 100 bux a piece for being extras and didn’t feel at all like sell outs. That 100 bux bought a lot of booze that night.
