"You're not hardcore, unless you live hardcore!"
Since its release in 2004, School of Rock has become an iconic movie - especially among Millennials.
Starring Jack Black as Dewey Finn, the film is about a down-and-out musician whose band kicks him out right before Battle of the Bands.
While at first Dewey stews in his in his own misery, he eventually gets himself a new gig...sort of.
After chatting to Rosalie Mullins (Joan Cusack), the headteacher at Horace Green prep, Dewey decides to take up the "temp" job at the school intended for his friend and roommate, Ned Schneebly (Mike White).
Initially, Dewey just whiles away the time, but he soon discovers the kids in his class are extraordinarily gifted musicians.
He then forms a rock band of his own to take to the competition.
So, where are the child actors from School of Rock today? Let's take a look...
Unsurprisingly, Cosgrove, now 28, went on to have a hugely successful acting career after School of Rock.
Not only was she a regular feature in Nickelodeon's Drake and Josh, she later starred as Carly Shay in the network's teen sitcom, iCarly.
Currently, Cosgrove is reprising her role in the iCarly reboot on Dinsey+. She's also the voice of Margo in the Despicable Me franchise.
After School of Rock, Joey quit acting and instead decided to focus on his music.
To this day, he plays guitar and regularly uploads videos of his jams.
Back in 2019, Joey was arrested by Florida police for allegedly stealing guitars and an amp.
Sadly, the Freddy Jones actor tragically died earlier this year, aged 32, after being struck by a car.
He was riding a bicycle in Chicago on May 26 and was pronounced dead at the Illinois Masonic hospital.
Reyes still plays bass and is part of the band Sweet Revenge and has also appeared in several other titles on-and-off since the movie.
The Katie actor also came out as non-binary last year, preferring the pronouns they/she.
It will come as no shock that Maryam is now a popular musician.
You can follow her career via her official Instagram page.
Caitlin Hale took a break from acting to focus on her studies.
She graduated from Arizona State with a degree in journalism and is going out with someone you may recognise...
That's right - Angelo and Caitlyn are officially a couple!
After School of Rock, Massagli featured in some impressive titles, including Stuart Little 2 and The Sopranos.
Although Robert still plays concert piano, he no longer acts.
He recently graduated from Dartmouth University.
Aleisha, now 30, has appeared in various other titles since her stint has Alicia in School of Rock.
Shortly after the movie aired, Aleisha starred as Lindsey in both Are We There Yet movies, along with Ice Cube, Nia Long and Philip Bolden.
She's since trained as a speech pathologist.
While Jordan-Claire did go on to star in a few titles after School of Rock - most notably as Annie Lamm in the 2005 film Come Away With Me and as Nicole Gibson in Alias, alongside Jennifer Garner - she hasn't been in anything since 2017.
Unlike most of the kid actors from the film, Z continued acting.
You may recognise him from the TV series Gotham, in which he played Jake, or from the 2016 movie, Carrie Pilby.
Most recently, Z played Ben Bernard in The College Tapes.
Brian is no longer an actor, but he does sing and he's also a successful life coach.
