Voyage of the Rock Aliens (1987)

Some futuristic aliens traveling through space in a guitar shaped spaceship see a 'rock music' video ( 'When the Rain Begins to Fall' by Pia Zadora and Jermaine Jackson). The video is a weird Mad Max type thing with 2 gangs of rival feral "street toughs" wearing face paint and headbands, and Pia and Jermaine prancing around, miming. Naturally, the aliens are instantly hooked on rock music and travel to earth looking like synth poppers Devo, with their robot sidekick. Arriving in the beach town of Speelburg they try to fit in with the local youths.
It just so happens that in this town resides a young hoodlum by the name of Frankie (Craig Scheffer). Frankie likes to sing with 'his' band, played in the movie by Jimmy & The Mustangs. Their music scenes are in the style of music videos, , particularly good is the clip for foot-tapping rock n' roll quiff-a-thon 'Justine'.
