Wikipedia wrote: “I Wanna Rock” is a song from the album Stay Hungry (1984) by Twisted Sister. In 2009 it was named the 17th VH1 Greatest Hard Rock Songs by VH1.

Music video: Like the earlier “We’re Not Gonna Take It”, the video features actor Mark Metcalf, best known as the sadistic Neidermeyer from the movie Animal House and a young Jack Black. Here, he plays a ferocious teacher who harasses a student for drawing the Twisted Sister logo on a book, shrieking: “What kind of a man desecrates a defenseless textbook?! I’ve got a good mind to slap your fat face!!” (echoing his line from Animal House: “What kind of man hits a defenseless animal [a misbehaving horse]? I’ve got a good mind to smash your fat face in.”). After his attempts to stop his rock-loving students fail, he crawls into the principal’s office – only to be confronted by the principal, played by Stephen Furst (Flounder from Animal House). Furst even gets to reprise one of his big lines from the movie: “Oh boy, is this great!” as he squirts water at the mean teacher.
