AC/DC – School Days

AC/DC – School Days

Australian hard rock band AC/DC recorded a version of “School Days” for their second album, T.N.T.. The song was originally released only in Australia. However, in 1997 it was released internationally on Volts, a compilation of Bon Scott-sung songs, part of the Bonfire box set. This video is available on the DVD “Plug Me In”

“School Days” (also known as “School Day (Ring! Ring! Goes the Bell)”) is a song that was written and recorded by rock and roll icon Chuck Berry, released by the Chess record label as a single in March 1957, and released on the LP After School Session two months later. It is one of his best known songs and is often considered a rock and roll anthem. It was first released as a single and later appeared as the lead track on Berry’s first album, After School Session.

The last verse of the song contains the lyrics “Hail, hail rock and roll / Deliver me from the days of old.” Hail! Hail! Rock and Roll became the title of a 1987 documentary and concert film about Berry. Much of the song’s musical arrangement would later be reused by Berry in 1964 on “No Particular Place To Go”. The same arrangement was also used on the very rare “Big Ben Blues”.
“School Days” also appears at the end of the Neil Young concert film Rust Never Sleeps during the credits.
