Russ Riley

Rocker from the 1950s movie parody skit, "I Was a Teenage Communist" on the 16 July 1982 episode of sketch comedy television series SCTV. Real rocker Dave Edmunds and his band appear in the film playing "From Small Things (Big Things One Day Come)" at Murray's Coco Shack. Dave plays Russ Riley, the band's leader who is secretly a commie no-goodnik trying to seduce normal teen Eddie Davis (Martin Short) into communism with rock 'n' roll.

Then Eddie tries reefer, turns into a werewolf, and is gunned down by the cops. So kids, remember: stay away from drugs, communism, rock 'n' roll, and lycanthropy!
