School of Rock Soundtrack Rocks Onto Streaming for the First Time

Get ready to turn up the volume and rock out because the iconic soundtrack to Jack Black’s 2003 musical comedy "School of Rock" has finally hit streaming services!

"The School of Rock (Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture)" album is packed with tracks performed by the cast, including the electrifying title track and a high-energy cover of AC/DC’s “It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll)”. The album also features timeless hits from legends like The Who, The Doors, Stevie Nicks, Led Zeppelin, and Ramones, plus a fresh track, “In The End Of Time”.

In "School of Rock", Jack Black stars as Dewey Finn, a rock musician down on his luck who masquerades as a substitute teacher named Mr. Schneebly to make ends meet. Instead of sticking to the curriculum, he transforms his class into a rock band. The film was a massive hit, raking in $131 million worldwide on a modest $35 million budget. Its success spawned a Broadway musical and a Nickelodeon series that aired for three seasons from 2016 to 2018.

Last year marked the 20th anniversary of the film, which saw Jack Black organizing a reunion of the original cast. He even expressed interest in a sequel, provided that the original writer, Mike White, is on board. White, who played Dewey’s roommate Ned Schneebly, is also known for creating and directing the acclaimed HBO series "The White Lotus".

However, the journey wasn’t all smooth sailing for the film’s young stars. Earlier this year, some of them revealed in a Rolling Stone interview that they faced bullying after the film's release. Joey Gaydos Jr., who played Zack Mooneyham, recalled being treated like “a three-headed freak” back home in Detroit, while Veronica Afflerbach, who portrayed “groupie” Eleni, vowed never to act again after facing “brutal” treatment from her schoolmates.

In a nostalgic twist, Robert Plant recently shared why he approved the use of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” for the movie. In a Vulture interview, Plant said, “My response is, ‘Why not?’ Our songs didn’t come from Valhalla. It’s not a preferred destination, either. I like the idea of taking the hammer to another time.”

He praised Jack Black’s rendition, adding, “Jack Black made a magnificent meal of it. "Immigrant Song" is a killer guitar riff, but it’s not an easy one for kids to play.”

So, whether you’re a die-hard fan or discovering "School of Rock" for the first time, now’s your chance to relive the magic. Plug in your air guitars, crank up the volume, and let the rock ‘n’ roll nostalgia take over. Rock on!
