The cinematic realization of every high school student's secret fear, THE FACULTY presents a school full of evil, (literally) inhuman teachers who terrorize their young charges. Accordingly, the soundtrack plays off the teacher-student conflict that's been a rock & roll staple since time immemorial. An ad hoc supergroup including Layne Staley and Stephen Perkins ominously updates Pink Floyd's education nightmare "Another Brick in the Wall." Two Alice Cooper classics, "I'm Eighteen" and (naturally) "School's Out" are resurrected by Creed and Soul Asylum respectively. A poppier vein is mined by Garbage ("Medication") and Sheryl Crow ("Resuscitation"). A highlight is Oasis' typically anthemic "Stay Young," which offers a ray of hope amid the sonic darkness.
