A tiny school in Australia is running a real-life version of the School of Rock.

School of Rock is a 2003  film starring Jack Black. Black plays struggling rock guitarist Dewey Finn, who is fired from his band. He then poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school.

Similarly to the film, all seven students from Mulga Bore School in rural Northern Territory formed a rock band to audition for a competition.

However, unlike in the film, this group actually went on to win the event, taking out the Alice Springs heats of Battle of the School Bands and qualifying for the next round.

The band is called Mulga Bore School Rock Band. As their name suggests, the band hails from the tiny community of Mulga Bore, 170 kilometres northeast of Alice Springs on Ankerrapw lands.

Mulga is an Australian native timber that is hard and heavy, so the name is befitting of a band that draws its inspiration from glam rock legends KISS.

The teen rockers have also embraced the makeup and onstage antics that made KISS famous.
