Rock Songs About School

When it comes to school music, rock songs are among the top genres. Rock musicians have succeeded in mixing rock and roll with education. After all, music education has always been offered in schools. However, in recent years, institutions are excluding music to make room for other subjects in the curriculum.

Rock songs about the school are quite relatable. Students from different schools can relate to the lyrics of almost every song. Even though learners study in different learning environments, they also share common experiences. Services like do my homework ensure you have a smooth learning experience in school.

Here are rock songs about the school you might recognize.

 

1.     Rock’ n’ Roll High School

The most impactful experiences that remain with students are usually got from high school. Even though students change as they grow, high school experiences shape all of us. Rock’ n’ Roll High School by the Ramones is a rock song that talks about typical high school experiences.

The song expresses typical Ramones fashion with lines like ‘I just wanna get some chicks’. Isn’t that what high school is about. Every boy wants a girlfriend, and every girl wants a boyfriend. The song was recorded and released in 1979. It has since had many variations over the years, but it maintains the same message.

Even after all these years, high school is still about wanting new shoes and being cool. So far, there are three versions of this song, and even though none of them charted in the U.S., the first version took 67th place on U.K. singles chart.

2.     School by Nirvana

As the name suggests, this is a rock song about school. It is a big hit from the Seattle gods. The song was part of a 1989 album called Bleach. The song’s storyline highlight bullying in high school. An oversized bully is featured taking another kid’s lunch money, leaving him with nothing to eat throughout the day. Nirvana spent just $600 on the production of the song, and it turned out to be a hit song.

3.     School’s Out by Alice Cooper

School’s Out is a 1972 anthem in which Alice Cooper threatens never to come back to school. I bet high school students can relate to this feeling. High school is fun, but it can be overwhelming sometimes. Students are always looking forward to the summer break.

This song was inspired by a phrase characters liked to use in the Bowery Boys movies. These movies run between 1946-1958. The song was released in 1972 when school was really out. To date, Alice Cooper’s song is an anthem for summer breaks.

4.     Hot for Teacher by Van Halen

Van Halen’s 1984 Hot for Teacher video took the world by storm. It’s a controversial song about boys having a crush on their teacher. Ever since the release of the sixth studio album, the band has not made another song.

Hot for teacher was the fourth and final single in their first-ever album. The band featured adults and school going kids. Many parents frowned upon the song because it featured sexually suggestive lyrics.

5.     Smokin’ in the Boys Room by Mötley Crüe

This rock song is yet another literal representation of life in high school. Smokin’ in the Boys Room is a song from Mötley Crüe’s 1985’s Theatre of Pain album. Boys always smoke in the washrooms even though if they get caught; they’d suffer the consequences. Mötley Crüe band members are still alive to date.

Conclusion

Rock songs about school have a relatable illustration of how high school was and still is. Judging from the songs, high school is fun, but it can be overwhelming sometimes. Students are always looking forward to summer vacations. Listening to old school rock songs about school brings back memories of your glory days.

Watch OVTLIER’s All New Groovy, Melodic And Harrowing Music Video, ‘Spineless’

OVTLIER from Rochester, New York are one of the most talked about new metalcore bands in town. It is justified that the sick yet amazing music that they create makes them worthy of all the attention that they are thrown at. OVTLIER has just released a new single that goes by the name, ‘Spineless‘ and oh boy, the music video is intense. The video contains disturbing imagery, so proceed with caution.

It talks about the horrors of the healthcare or drug industry. The new song is some thing nu metal fans can directly cling on to as there are sections the band goes out all guns blazing and then there are certain complimentary parts where they all even out the aggression by taking to clean vocals and anthem-esque melody. Both of the vibes go hand in hand pretty darn well.

LOUDER THAN LIFE 2019: Dissecting The Daily Schedules

We’re a scant week-and-a-half from the return of LOUDER THAN LIFE, one of the nation’s premiere hard rock/heavy metal events. After flooding cruelly scuttled last year’s festivities, Danny Wimmer Presents worked with the city of Louisville to find a new home for the festival, settling on the Kentucky Expo Center’s Highland Festival Grounds (with “highland” being, hopefully, the operative word). 2019’s potent lineup packs some major firepower, with headliners GUNS N’ ROSES, SLIPKNOT, and DISTURBED alongside an array of current acts like HALESTORM, A DAY TO REMEMBER, and IN THIS MOMENT, rising stars such as DIRTY HONEY and CROWN LANDS, and metal mainstays like ROB ZOMBIE, GODSMACK, and MARILYN MANSON. A lineup of this magnitude will invariably force punters to make some hard choices between this band on that stage and that band on this stage; after poring over this year’s daily schedules, here are some of the weekend’s biggest scheduling snafus and how your intrepid reporter plans to unravel them.

Underground, Inc.: Shaun Katz’s Labor of Love for Alternative Music Comes to Perfect Fruition

Underground, Inc.

13 September 2019

Written, directed and produced by:

Shaun Katz

Life is a short span of time for each of us. Things go up and things come down. There are moments of strife that we can’t seem to see the end of and times of pure joy that we hope will never end. There are tragic times that we can never forget like the assassination of J.F.K, the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, 9/11 and the like; and quiet, personal times like getting married, the birth of a child and loss of someone close to us that shake and shape who we are and what we become. For many of us, music has been our catharsis through the thick and thin of life. The one thing that can raise our spirits or give us something to relate to. Something that makes us know that we are not the only ones experiencing what life throws our way. To us, music is heart-felt and soul mining.
