    "School's Out" by Alice Cooper comes to mind. I don't know that I thought of the song as being any sort of psychological palliative. Mostly I associate it with being a Senior in high school and feeling great anticipation at the thought of being 'done' with school.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I just don't have a lot of connections between music and school. My music choice usually changes with my mood or what's going on. There has never been one song that was super special to me. I don't even have a wedding song.
    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    I was a freshman when Napster was huge and I remember listening to all sorts of super weird techno remixes of the most random songs. Nothing specific, I just remember that was my go-to genre as a college freshman.

    Among many others.... High School ('05-'09) was my first peak Punk phase - tight jeans, patches all over all my clothes, studs etc.

    Middle School (2001-05) I was into Metal 101 from 6th grade on, some of my favorites in that era were more album than song based, and included:

    Mayhem - all of Deathcrush EP
    Iron Maiden - All of the Killers album
    Metallica - All of Ride the Lightning
    Judas Priest - British Steel
    Megadeth - Rust in Peace
