School may be out for summer, but the School of Rock is now in session! Aspiring rocker Jack Black cons his way into a teaching job and shows a bunch of 5th graders how to rock. Along the way, he teaches them the finer points of classic rock history, gives them some lessons about self respect, and winds up learning to be a responsible adult. It's all very sweet.
And the soundtrack is loaded with choice classic rock cuts! We've got The Doors! We've got Led Zeppelin! AC/DC, Cream, The Who, The Stooges! And we even get a couple of more modern cuts from The Darkness and The Black Keys. Get ready to take notes, because this will all be on the test!
