In AIRHEADS, The Lone Rangers, a struggling Los Angeles rock and roll band, inadvertently take a radio station hostage in an attempt to get their demo played. Believing that if Rebel Radio KPPX plays their demo they will become a success, the band breaks into the station to win over the deejay. After being rejected and insulted, the band pulls out a toy water-gun, which looks like a real Uzi, and take over the radio station. These events draw not only the police and rock and roll fans, but also the media. Because of their coverage, The Lone Rangers become an overnight success without ever having played their song.
AIRHEADS is filled with immoral elements. The premise of the movie is that if you are a struggling band, do something illegal to get the media out to cover the situation and you will become an overnight success. In the end, The Lone Rangers are not really punished for their illegal actions (only 3 months in jail) and show no regret. Also, adultery is portrayed as acceptable, as Chazz lives with girlfriend Kayla. The movie is also plagued by numerous sexual references and gestures. Women are portrayed as dumb sex objects. Meaningless and miserable, AIRHEADS contains no moral, wholesome or family-oriented elements.
