  • Lyrics
  • With guest vocals by Alice Cooper, this song follows what was a somewhat common theme in metal music in 1985: busting on school. Cooper's "School's Out" and Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It" also expressed this sentiment in a somewhat comical way.
  • This song's video featuring zombies was created by special effects wizard Tom Savini. It was banned from MTV for excessive violence and gore, and resulted in a major financial loss for both Twisted Sister and Atlantic records. >>

  • The video features the comedian Bobcat Goldthwait, who is known for his work on the Police Academy movies.
