Schools Out by: Alice Cooper

This song isn’t hard to play but is very cool given that it is in three 

different keys; the chorus sections are of different length and end with

different chords, and there is a bridge section leading into another bridge 

section. These guys threw out the formula and created a masterpiece, here.
