(SOUNDBITE OF FILM, "SCHOOL OF ROCK")

JACK BLACK: (As Dewey Finn, singing) Baby, we was making straight A's.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. The "School Of Rock" band is reuniting to stick it to the man.

BLACK: (As Dewey Finn) It's a rare blood disease - Stickitothemaniosis (ph).

INSKEEP: In the 2003 movie, Jack Black played a wannabe rocker who takes a gig as a fifth-grade substitute teacher. Black says he and the actors who played the fifth-graders, now in their 30s, are getting the band back together, and they're promising to share pictures of their jam session on social media.
