-->"Here's a useful lesson for ya: Give up. Just quit. Because in this life, you can't ''win''. Oh yeah, you can try. But in the end you're just gonna lose ''big'' time! Because the ''world'' is run by TheMan! The Man oh you don't know the ''Man?'' Oh, [[BigBrotherIsWatching he's everywhere]]! In [[PresidentEvil the White House]], [[AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil down the hall]] ''Ms. Mullins'', ''she's'' the Man. And [[CorruptCorporateExecutive the Man]] ''ruined'' [[GlobalWarming the ozone]]; and he's ''burning down'' TheAmazon; and he [[KickTheDog kidnapped Shamu and put her in a chlorine tank]]! And there used to be a way to stick it to the Man, it was called ''[[ThePowerOfRock rock 'n roll]]''. But guess what? Oh no, the Man ruined that too, with a little thing called '''''[[TakeThat MTV]]!''''' So don't waste your time trying to make anything cool, or pure, or awesome, 'cause the Man is just gonna call you [[YouSuck a fat, washed-up loser]], and crush your soul! So do yourselves a favor, and just GIVE UP!!"

Added DiffLines:

* BigWhat: Dewey gets two. The first is during the auditions for Battle of the Bands after Summer tells him another band invited Freddy out to their van. The second is a scene or so later when he's told the auditions are over.


Added DiffLines:

* ThrowTheDogABone: Dewey all but names the trope at the start of the film when he says he will pay Ned and Patty when No Vacancy wins Battle of the Bands.
** [[spoiler:The Battle of the Band officials do this to Dewey and the kids by allowing them to play because they believe the kids to be terminally ill.]]

* CoolLoser: Freddy seems to be openly despised by most of his fellow students, but it's likely justified in that he's a wannabe tough guy and the only "cool kid" in a class full of nerds.

* CrackDefeat: [[spoiler:The kids get beaten by No Vacancy (which just so happens to be [[BrickJoke the band that fired Dewey at the beginning of the movie]]), despite the entire crowd going crazy during their performance. They one-up the winners though, because the audience wants an encore.]]

* FilmingForEasyDub: Instead of Jack Black, it's a guitar. [[spoiler:In the climax of the film, Jack breaks out a guitar solo, but his guitar NEVER faces the camera, so you don't see the necessary hand movements to perform said solo.]] Possibly Lampshaded afterwards by Mullins asking him if that was really him playing. (It wasn't -- the DVD commentaries reveal Jack Black doesn't really play electric guitar that well[[note]]It's Kyle Gass who handles lead guitar in Music/TenaciousD[[/note]]. Most of the guitar playing his character did was actually him miming to a pre-recorded guitar track. He does occasionally play himself, though, such as when teaching Zack the riff to "Smoke on the Water" by Music/DeepPurple.)

** Tomika, initially a ShrinkingViolet, is on her way of becoming one (the way she shuts Freddy up is ''priceless'').

** Dewey's improvised song about math ends with him calling nine "[[SchoolhouseRock a magic number]]." And ''Music/TheBeatles'' had a pretty famous "number nine," if not a magical one.
** The poster for the movie has "We don't need no education" (a line from "Another Brick in the Wall Part 2" by ''Music/PinkFloyd'') and "Come on feel the noize" (a reference to the song "Cum On Feel the Noize" by ''Music/{{Slade}}''). "Accept no substitutes" on the poster is a reference to the ''Delaney & Bonnie'' album ''Accept No Substitute''.

* Foreshadowing: Ned tells Dewey in their first scene together that if Dewey thinks Ned's job's so easy, he should try it. Come Dewey answering a call meant for Ned a few scenes later from Horace Green, and guess what happens.

** On {{TBS}}, the credits don't appear in the final scene (they are replaced with a CreditsPushback afterwards), ruining the gag.
