They deliver an engaging and rather chatty track. The three men laugh and joke about working on the movie and clearly have fond memories of their experiences on it. They talk about its long history: how it was originally called Girls Gym, then changed to Disco High by Roger Corman, who wanted to capitalize on the disco craze, and finally they settled on Rock 'n' Roll High School after Arkush convinced Corman that the Ramones were the perfect band for the movie. Fans of the film will find a lot of great anecdotal information on this track and the casual tone makes one feel like they are sitting with the filmmakers watching the movie over snacks and drinks.
