Words: Keyan Milanian

It’s a scientifically proven fact that the world would have been a much sadder place had it not been for the release, a short quarter century ago, of a film called Wayne’s World.

Back on May 22, 1992, we were introduced to Wayne and Garth, two rock ‘n roll fans and hosts of a small-time TV show filmed in Wayne’s basement. Twenty-five years on, the long-haired Queen-loving pair are still considered cult heroes.

So, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the film’s release, here we have 19 totally excellent facts you probably didn’t know about the film. No way? Way.
