How about a date of release?[edit]

Surprised that it is not included on here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:30, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Cartoon Network[edit]

I think the thing about their not censoring it for cartoon network is uneccesary. Roz mouths the word in the theatrical and DVD releases; it's part of the film. In general, I don't think something that didn't happen is worthy of a mention. 04:55, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Stick it to the man[edit]

Readers might think the main purpose is to "score chicks" or "get wasted." Dewey corrects these misperceptions as the true purpose is to "stick it to the man" because "one great rock show can change the world."


Actually the film is School Of Rock! The "The" was originally in the title, but it got dropped. But, it ended up in the opening credits with the neon sign.

Spolier/plot warning?[edit]

Does this article need a spoiler/plot warning?

I don't know... it only gives away the bare essentials... like a movie review.

Refer to Wikipedia's guidelines on this: Plot sections should not have spoiler warnings.

Wikipedia does not fool with "spoiler warnings". It's an encyclopedia. It's assumed that readers have come to learn about the subject. Laodah 06:13, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

WRONG!!!! WRONG!!!! AUGH!!!!!!!![edit]

Did somebody make changes to this article without seeing the movie? The girl who helps Jack Black with the band is the MANAGER, not the BACK-UP SINGER. There were three back-ups.

Be bold, make the changes yourself. also she is seen singing back up during the encore.


Under trivia: "When the kids point out that they are influenced by crappy mainstream music,"

I'm going to get rid of the crappy, true as it may be. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 15:24, June 13, 2006 (UTC)

Caption: "(BEN)"?![edit]

Someone put "(BEN)" in the caption. I have no idea to what this refers so I'm taking it out. ----HughL [talk?]/[contribs] •  11:07, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Likely just a vandal tagging a page with his name. Don't lose sleep over it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Master Deusoma (talkcontribs) 22:36, October 5, 2006 (UTC)

Dewey shows the kids: The Beatles? ...and The White Stripes.[edit]

How did Dewey introduce them to The Beatles (as it says in the article)? Or is this just a mere example? I'm a pretty big fan and the only reference to the Fab Four that I saw was a sticker inside Dewey's van.

Also, I was very surprised at the mention of White Stripes. I'm a huge fan of them, too, and I thought it was so cool that Katie stood up for Meg. Jack White always says that people, when they see her drum, think she has no talent, but that's not what the music's about. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 07:29, July 20, 2006 (UTC)


I deleted some info from the trivia section because some of it just said obvious things or things that really had no significance to the film. hope nobody minds. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mitchbradt (talkcontribs) 21:13, February 2, 2007 (UTC)

Much of the trivia is about the music of the film. Could I suggest that somebody make a separate music section, detailing the music of the film in a sensible (perhaps chronological) way, and get rid of most of the trivia section in line with Wikipedia's guidelines?

No Vacancy[edit]

Why do I get re-directed to this page when I type in "no vacancy"?

I don't know how to change it, otherwise I would. Movietrailer 00:19, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Because the band that Black's character that hes is kicked out of (and eventually wins Battle of the Bands) is named "No Vacancy". —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:53, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Regarding amplifiers in the movie[edit]

Not ALL of the amps in the movie are Marshalls, I definitely saw a Randall half-stack in the background and there is at least one other non-Marshall (couldn't tell since I'm watching on a very small screen).

I'm going to have to change that in the trivia section.

Genealogic tree[edit]

Does anyone know where can I find the genealogic tree of rock that appears drawn on the blackboard in a scene? I've tried hard to find it, but I can't.

If anyone knows how was it made, and can reproduce it the most accurately possible, I'll be grateful. 20:29, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Filming Locations[edit]

Someone repeatedly removes New Jersey as a filming location when several scenes were filmed in Central and North Jersey. IMDB lists several NJ locations and even the film's closing credits thank a few NJ municipalities. Parts of this movie were filmed in NJ. Leave it there. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 14:50, April 21, 2008

The tagline[edit]

I'm going to add a bit about the Tagline. it references the song another brick in the wall and I think it should deserve some mention. (talk) 06:38, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Led Zeppelin[edit]

I added the little piece under soundtrack about obtaining the rights to the Immigrant Song. Given Zeppelin's history, I think it's definitely noteworthy (not to mention amazing) that they were able to get the rights to use it. Lazarusongrave (talk) 00:29, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

It may also be worth mentioning that Jack Black had to make a video begging LZ to let them use the song. It was a DVD extra. (talk) 04:08, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Sister Act goes to grade school?[edit]

I removed this from the first section:

Some critics however have complained that the film is little more than "Sister Act goes to grade school". ref:

because the reference doesn't say anything of the kind. Was this subtle vandalism?

School of Rock 2: America Rocks![edit]

School of Rock 2: America Rocks! is a possible sequal to the first of School of Rock. Miranda Cosgrove was on the movie of School of Rock I'm not to sure about a second of School of Rock with Jack Black. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:49, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:The Paul Green School of Rock Music which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RM bot 05:16, 2 October 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by HardBoiledEggs (talkcontribs)

Requested move[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Not moved. - I would advise the IP to read WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. –Davey2010Talk 19:45, 2 June 2016 (UTC) –Davey2010Talk 19:45, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Oppose and there are also other articles called "Paris". Unreal7 (talk) 09:09, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose, the film meets WP:PRIMARYTOPIC as the only topics that come close in pageviews are the musical and TV series, both of which are based on the film. With two notable spinoffs clearly the film's significance is high and it still gets the most views anyway. Nohomersryan (talk) 13:52, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.
