Teaming up with what's been dubbed as the 'original school of rock', Jack Black has covered David Bowie's 'Suffragette City'.

The band of students are from San Francisco's Blue Bear School of Music, founded in 1971. 

Celebrating their 50th anniversary, the school, which is "the longest-running rock and roll school in the nation, and probably the world”, enlisted the help of Black to celebrate the occasion in true style.

“I jumped at the chance to celebrate their 50th anniversary by jamming some Bowie with their teen all-star band. So fun. What an honour. They’ve been teaching kids to rock since 1971! I love Blue Bear…the original school of rock!!!” said Black.

 The non-profit band are also lauching a "rocking' auction" to further "benefit our nonprofit mission, providing free music education”.
