The Kinks "No More Looking Back" from the album, Schoolboys in Disgrace
Schoolboys in Disgrace or The Kinks Present Schoolboys in Disgrace is a 1975 album by English rock group The Kinks.
According to the back cover liner notes, the story which the album presents is as follows:
Once upon a time there was a naughty little schoolboy. He and his gang were always playing tricks on the teachers and bullying other children in the school. One day he got himself into very serious trouble with a naughty schoolgirl and he was sent to the Headmaster who decided to disgrace the naughty boy and his gang in front of the whole school.
After this punishment the boy turned into a hard and bitter character. Perhaps it was not the punishment that changed him but the fact that he realised people in authority would always be there to kick him down and the Establishment would always put him in his place. He knew that he could not change the past but he vowed that in the future he would always get what he wanted. The naughty little boy grew up... into Mr Flash.
Mr Flash was the name of the villain from The Kinks' rock opera Preservation (released as Preservation Act 1 and Preservation Act 2).
The front cover was illustrated by Mickey Finn of T. Rex. It later appeared on NME's list of the '50 worst covers of all time'.
In 1978 the Finnish band Kontra had a number one hit with the song Jerry Cotton which was a cover version of the song Jack the Idiot Dunce.
9 out of 10 -- pretty good.
