Troma’s Class of Nuke ‘Em High never had an official soundtrack released, and their fans have been asking for one since 1986. The day they’ve been waiting for is finally here.
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 magnificently thick 180g vinyl, street date is November 11, 2014.
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.
