What the viewer heard while the live band played was Agent Orange, however, the band onstage "lip syncing" was the Vancouver BC punk band Death Sentence (aside from the "singer" who was an actor). See more »


During the scene where Tom first meets Lancer at the coffee shop, the spoken dialogue does not match the character's lips, and was added in at a later date. Tom refers to "kicking tail", but his mouth clearly says the word "ass". The spoken dialogue is louder and clearer on this part, indicating it was edited in at a later date. A few scenes later, Doug also refers to getting their "tails kicked", which was also dubbed in at a later date. See more »

One of the best episodes from Season 1
29 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite 21 Jump Street episodes ever. It is also one of Johnny Depp's character's best. In this episode Officer Hanson has to infiltrate a tight group of young punks who have recently been charged with reckless behavior, and he also has to investigate their involvement in the attack of a high school freshman.

The episode has spectacular music-provided by Agent Orange and gives the viewer a look into the punk-lifestyle in the late 1980s. It is visually a great episode and the story is very good too. It has smart dialogue and even a moshing scene!

Look for Jason Priestly and David Sherrill in this episode. Jason starred of course in the series "Beverly Hills 90210" and David appeared in other films like "The Wraith" (1986).
