My Favorite School Songs

Happy Labor Day everyone! Well, maybe I shouldn't say "happy"; for most kids, Labor Day isn't a very happy holiday at all. It means it's time for school, and, even if it also means there'll be a nice barbecue at Uncle Chester's this evening, that feeling makes most kids feel uneasy at best, terrified at worst. But to make the transition from the carefree-ness of summer to the care-ness of fall, I've selected some of my favorite school-related songs. These twenty-four all have something to do with the school experience (learning, studying, teaching, etc.)--even if some only really relate to school because of their name. Regardless, these are my favorite school songs, and listening to them will hopefully get you in the mood to hit those books again:

24. Red Hot Chili Peppers--Catholic School Girls Rule
23. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds--Today's Lesson
22. Atlas Sound--Washington School
21. Air--Subtraction
20. Erykah Badu--Master Teacher
19. Nirvana--School
18. Indian Ocean--School Bell/Treehouse
17. Belle & Sebastian--We Rule The School
16. Mclusky--What We've Learned
15. Minutemen--God Bows To Math
14. DNA--Taking Kid To School
13. Perfume Genius--Learning

12. Cat Stevens--(Remember The Days Of The) Old Schoolyard
11. Leonard Cohen--Teachers
10. Pink Floyd--Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. 2
9. !!!--Me And Giuliani Down By The Schoolyard
8. The Ramones--Rock n' Roll High School
7. Mission of Burma--Academy Fight Song
6. Paul Simon--Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard
5. Glenn Branca--Lesson No. 1
4. Husker Du--Something I Learned Today
3. Alice Cooper--School's Out
2. Hot Chip--And I Was A Boy From School
1. Minutemen--History Lesson, Pt. II

That's what I think. Study hard!
