ALICE COOPER's 'Rock School' Version Of 'School's Out' Posted Online

An audio sample of ALICE COOPER performing his classic "School's Out" with the students of Paul Green's School Of Rock Music, taken from the soundtrack to the much-anticipated film "Rock School", has been posted online at CalvinRecords.com. Check it out: Real Media, Windows Media.

As previously reported, the "Rock School" soundtrack is scheduled to be released on May 31, 2005 through Trillion Records.

The documentary, which will hit theaters early this summer through NewMarket Films, chronicles the inception and success of Paul Green's School Of Rock Music, which was founded in Philadelphia in 1999 to teach young musicians and singers to play and perform classic rock 'n' roll.

Produced by Grammy Award-winning Phil Nicolo (LAURYN HILL, THE ROOTS, TRAIN), the soundtrack to "Rock School" takes a unique approach by featuring the actual students that appeared in the film re-recording hits alongside legends like Alice Cooper, DEEP PURPLE's Ian Gillan, YES' Jon Anderson, THE POLICE's Stewart Copeland, THE RAMONES' Marky Ramone, HEART's Ann Wilson, MEGADETH's Dave Mustaine, and Billy Idol.

The track listing is as follows:

01. "Black Magic Woman" - GREGG ROLIE
02. "I Wanna Be Sedated" - MARKY RAMONE/TYSON RITTER (THE ALL AMERICAN REJECTS)
03. "School's Out" - ALICE COOPER
04. "Barracuda" - ANN WILSON
05. "Highway Star" - IAN GILLAN
06. "LA Woman" - THE PAUL GREEN SCHOOL OF ROCK MUSIC
07. "Heart Of The Sunrise" - JON ANDERSON
08. "Rebel Yell" - BILLY IDOL
09. "Don't Stand So Close To Me" - STEWART COPELAND
10. "Iron Man" - THE PAUL GREEN SCHOOL OF ROCK MUSIC
11. "Peace Sells" - DAVE MUSTAINE
12. "Hocus Pocus" - THE PAUL GREEN SCHOOL OF ROCK MUSIC

"When the producers asked me to be a part of 'Rock School', I said okay and asked them to send me a track of the kids performing our song. What I heard was a bunch of kids giving it 100 percent, and it sounded great. It was good fun," said Ian Gillan of DEEP PURPLE who performs the band's hit "Highway Star" on the soundtrack.

"Rock School" is the soundtrack to more than just a temporary fantasy camp. It's the beginning of the kids' new way of life.

The movie trailer can now be viewed at an FTP site (in QuickTime, Windows Media and Real Player formats in small, medium and large sizes).
