Played byPaul Hanson

Paul was a member of The Pinheads, along with Marty McFly and Lee, since they were in elementary school. He played guitar.

In 1979, Douglas J. Needles moved to Hill Valley from Bakersville, and bought his way into the band with his mother's money. Since Needles couldn't play his guitar and he was a showoff, Paul and Lee told Marty they didn't want him in the band. Needles overheard this and started his own band. This furthered Needles' grudge against Marty.

By 1985, The Pinheads had a new member, Bobby, who joined the band after they all went on a camping trip. The four of them auditioned on October 25, 1985 for the Battle of the Bands at the Hill Valley High School gymnasium, playing a hard rock version of "The Power of Love". They were rejected, as the head judge thought they were "just too darn loud".

One of multiple boys from whom Linda McFly had gained attention in the altered and improved 1985 was named Paul. It is unknown as to whether this Paul and The Pinheads' guitarist were one and the same.
