When Amy Madigan read for the film, she read for the part of the lead character's sister. Madigan told Walter Hill that the best part in the script was the lead character's sidekick. That part called for a man and the character's name was Mendez. The part was rewritten for Madigan and was renamed McCoy.

Much of the movie's night scenes were shot under huge tarps during the day, because a lot of the extras were young enough to still be subject to the US Child Labor laws.

I've noticed on that certain scenes from the last song "Tonight is What it Means to Be Young" were not shown in the movie (DVD version, not sure about the VHS). There are flashes of Ellen Aim standing with her back to the audience and towards the band. In one flash, she has her eyes closed. In the next flash, she looks at the drummer and then in the final flash, she looks up at the ceiling. This can be seen in a video compilation put together with clips from the movie under "anthr version" on Youtube.

Another part that was shown in for the trailer of the movie, but for some reason deleted in the movie itself, was when Ellen told Tom "You should stay and see the show, it's really good".

Another scene which was a different version in the trailer compared to the one the movie was when Raven said "I want Tom Cody".
