Joey Jeremiah (Pat Mastroianni) on vocals and keyboards, Archie 'Snake' Simpson (Stefan Brogren) on guitar, and Derek 'Wheels' Wheeler (Neil Hope) on bass, form the new wave-y trio The Zit Remedy in the low budget, Canadian-produced, coming-of-age show Degrassi Junior High (1986-1989).[ They had only one damn song, "Everybody Wants Something," available on their 1988 homemade album (or cassingle, to be more accurate), The Zit Remedy: LIVE! After Wheels' parents' tragic death, he drifted in and out of the band and was briefly semi-replaced on bass by Simon Dexter (Michael Carry).

Eventually Wheels sold his bass and it seemed the band was dead. But when the show changed its name and setting to Degrassi High (1989-1991), the boys resurrected the band, decided a new, more mature moniker was needed, and so changed their name to The Zits. Much more mature. They tried to get their song on radio station CRAZ, got shot down, made a music video, and other such antics until the writers ran out of stereotypical high school band plots and the band faded from the show.
