Released in 1981, Shock Treatment was the now virtually unknown sequal to The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
"Ya need a bit of
Ooooh, Shock Treatment
Get'cha jumpin' like a real live wire
Need a bit of
Ooooh, Shock Treatment"
Slang for ECT or Electro-Convulsive Therapy, a modern of version of the mental health procedure that hopefully shocks a patient out of their madness. It was graphically depicted in the movie "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" starring Jack Nicholson. The modern procedure involves sedatives and anti-convulsive drugs to prevent injury to the patient and typically the procedure lasts less than 2 minutes. Used as a last resort treatment, common side effects include memory loss.
