Visuals Lyrics
Cut to a gym, with the studentsmoving their feet while sitting on bleachers, cheerleaders cheering, and a band playing. It later reveals that a middle-aged lady was cheering amongst the other cheerleaders. Cut to a janitor with mopping equipment. He grabs a bagel out of the bucket and takes a bite. Cut back to the bleachers where the cheerleaders are still cheering, and we learn that the principal has been "rocking out" Introduction
Cut to the band playing and "Weird Al" Yankovic dressed as Kurt Cobain. He sings along to the words. What is this song all about?
