It's been over 15 years since Dewey Finn (Jack Black) enlightened those tightly-wound middle school scholars at Horace Green prep school with the gift of rock music in School of Rock.


To commemorate the film's 15th anniversary, the former musically prodigious whippersnappers reunited on New Year's eve and posted a photo of themselves looking well-past their prepubescent prime. For those feeling nostalgic, School of Rock is available here in a variety of formats.

The reunion that took place in New York City included Brian Falduto (Billy), James Hosey (Marco), Becca Brown (Katie), Zachary Infante (Gordon), Aleisha Lanae Allen (Alicia), Angelo Massagli (Frankie) and Caitlin Hale (Marta).

In the snapshot, the actors who are in their twenties appear jovial after evidently knocking back a few alcoholic beverages, legally, of course.

They have all grown up. And now we're feeling ancient.

Caitlin Hale, who played choir member, Marta "Blondie," posted the reunion photo with the kids all grown up and captioned it with:

"Seven School of Rockstars walk into a bar..."


Zachary Infante, who played Gordon "Roadrunner" and is now a Broadway performer, also posted a photo from the festivities.

Buzzfeed pointed out that some faces were noticeably absent, including Miranda Cosgrove (band manager Summer "Tinkerbell"), but there were still plenty of familiar cast mates attending the reunion.



So what have these grownups been up to since their days of rocking out on stage over a decade and a half ago?

Rebecca Brown, who played bassist Katie "Posh Spice," is still acting and as seen below, still keeps in touch with her former on-screen music teacher.



The band's stylist Billy "Fancy Pants," played by Brian Falduto, is now a singer/songwriter who also helps members of the LGBTQ community.

Based on his Instagram photo, he never lost his sense of style.



Aleisha Allen, who played singer Alicia, continues to perform and spends time as a "speech language pathologist."



Caitlin Hale earned her medical degree specializing in sonography at Nova Southeastern University.



She is apparently dating her former Rock co-star Angelo Massagli, who played security guy Frankie "Tough Guy."



The young performers have all come a long way since the ragtag team looked like this.





On August 29, 2013, some of the grown child actors reunited at the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas, for the movie's 10-year-anniversary.

Director Richard Linklater and Jack Black joined Miranda Cosgrove and the rest of the young cast, except for Cole Hawkins who played Leonard.

The highlight of the evening was at the VIP after party at which the School of Rock band performed "School of Rock" and "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)."

People have different levels of tolerance when it comes to profanity.

And some people can't stand the sound of rude or vulgar language so much that they can't bring themselves to say these naughty words themselves.

But when anyone reaches a high level of anger or frustration, they still might need a verbal outlet.

And instead find themselves coming up with an alternative word, which helps them release their anger, but won't offend any nearby ears.

Redditor No-Citron5628 was curious to hear people's favorite alternatives to curse words, leading them to ask:
