The day when school was really out for summer!

It became the anthem for school children across the world!

It was on this day (28th Aug) in 1972 that Alice Cooper went to Number One in the UK with 'School's Out'.

Cooper said he was inspired to write the classic song when he was asked "What's the best three minutes of your life?".

He responded with:

"One is Christmas morning, the next one is the last three minutes of the last day of school."
