Amongst my Morricone, Herrmann, Goldsmith, Rosenman, et. al. ... I also have my guilty pleasures. And I'm looking forward to this rock song score for Troma's 1986 whacked-out movie, CLASS OF NUKE 'EM HIGH. I used to cover that cult studio for Fangoria magazine back in the day and admired its ability to give virtual unknown artists a place to launch a career. Or destroy one depending upon how you look at it!

I personally pre-ordered the "Dewey's Meltdown" splattered vinyl edition. Only 300 copies to go around--700 black vinyl being pressed too. Here's the company's announcement. It plans more vinyl soundtrack releases and its president, Aaron Hamel, is a very dedicated horror fan and film music enthusiast.

New York, N.Y., July 22, 2014 – The Ship to Shore Phonograph Company announced today that the soundtrack to the Troma classic Class of Nuke ‘Em High will finally get an official release, something fans have been waiting for since 1986! In conjunction with Troma, Ship To Shore have collated the glorious 80's anthems that made the soundtrack such a highly demanded item, and will release it to the public – on gloriously thick 180g vinyl! The LP is now available for pre-order at and will street on November 11, 2014.

Featuring artwork from Godmachine, the soundtrack will be limited to 1,000 copies. 700 copies will be on high quality 180 gram black vinyl, and 300 on special “Dewey’s Meltdown” splattered vinyl. Each song has been meticulously remastered for optimum stereophonic listening pleasure, so fans can now enjoy them the way they the artists intended them.

Track listing is as follows:

Nuke ‘Em High – Ethan & the Coup
Emotional Rufugee – David Behennah
Rock ‘N’ Roll Paradise – Stormbringer
Angel – GMT
Much Too Much – The Smithereens
Run For Your Life – Stratus (feat. Clive Burr of Iron Maiden)
We Are One – Ethan & the Coup (exclusive bonus track, never before released!)
Class of Nuke ‘Em High Part 2 Theme

Inside the sleeve you can expect liner notes from director Lloyd Kaufman and theme song composer Ethan Hurt, along with never-before-seen production stills and behind-the-scenes production photos from the movie. And because the portable record player was never invented – at least successfully – each LP will also include an MP3 download of the full album, featuring exclusive track-by-track commentary by Troma President and Class of Nuke ‘Em High co-director Lloyd Kaufman! For an exclusive sampler of the album, visit:

The album can only be ordered directly from the Ship To Shore Media webstore: and due to its limited run it is expected to sell out fast!
