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!

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!
