When I was in high school, every single dance I ever went to had a DJ playing shitty rap and pop music. I never saw a live band. But every movie about high school that I ever see, set in the 80s or earlier, makes it seem like there’s a live rock band at every high school dance. Maybe my high school was just really uncultured and backwards. God knows, they could afford it if they wanted to - they had a renovation to their atrium that cost two million dollars - but whoever was in charge of the dances apparently never got the idea to have a live performance.
Did you have live bands in high school? Does anyone still have them today?
