Description by OLDIES.com:

Eddie Crane (Tony Travis) is the leader of a group of young punks. A talent agent hears him singing at a local diner and thinks Eddie has a shot at the big time. A recording session is set, but his friends have different plans. Aftera night of heavy drinking and partying, Eddie's psychotic friend, Mooney (Peter Breck), shoots and kills a bartender, forcing the group into hiding. Eddie decides to do the recording session anyway, resulting in a brutal confrontation between gang members and the police.

Product Description:

Often shown on MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, this classic of the "troubled teen" films of the late 1950s stars Tony Travis as Eddie Crane, a young punk and aspiring singer who hangs out with a group of "beatniks." Trying to ditch his old friends for the promise of a lucrative recording contract and a respectable life, Tony finds that his friends won't let him go straight that easily.
