It looks like Jack Black is still inspiring school rock bands.
A Palmerston North school is set to take the stage for their School of Rock production and the American actor had a special message for them.
In a video posted to the school’s Facebook account, the star said he heard about their upcoming production after one of the parents of the kids reached out and he couldn’t help but share a message of support for the youngsters.
"It’s me, Jack Black, I heard you were doing School of Rock. Are you doing School of Rock?" he exclaimed. "That rules."
"Hey, you rule the school and you rock the block and I just wanted to wish you luck, I wanted to send you good vibes and rock ‘n’ roll spirit.
"Go get it! And don’t forget…there’s no way you can stop, the School of Rock," he sang in the beloved tone fans have come to know and love.
School of Rock was released in 2004 and quickly earned rave reviews for its endearing storyline. The film went on to win eight awards and earn 23 nominations including a Grammy and Golden Globes nomination.
It also held the title of the highest-grossing music-themed comedy for over 10 years until it was defeated by Pitch Perfect 2 in 2015.
