Old School Rocks (Memphis Wrestling's First Family)
As the King and the Mouth of the South battled for supremacy in the ring in the '80s, the two onetime music collaborators fought each other over the airwaves via Rock 103 and FM 100 in a battle of the bands, with the locals voting for the No. 1 wrestling novelty record.
The Gentry musician's "We Hate School" is every educator's nightmare, declaring to area students in Bartlett, Craigmont and Raleigh-Egypt you can't have it both ways: either you love academia or you love rock 'n' roll, baby! Of course, the burnouts at those school had long decided education really wasn't their thing, dropping out to work full time at Kroger or McDonald's, where they remain employed to this day.
Meanwhile, at Germantown, we opted for the King's "World's Greatest Wrestler," despite the fact it was essentially a blatant ripoff of "Handsome" Jimmy's "Son of a Gypsy." Of course, it was more of a vote for the value of higher education than the King's musical abilities, which earned a D+.
In the end, the King triumphed as always, this time in the station polls, mostly because fans of "We Hate School" were so stoned they forgot to vote.
Today, with so many college kids saddled with hundreds of thousands of student debt, it's easy to see perhaps we had it all wrong: to hell with school, rock 'n' roll is where it's at, baby!
