Zap, it makes me very happy that you're quoting RATM (do you listen to Audioslave at all?). Just as long as you don't quote, "F*ck you, I won't do what you tell me."
Not sure if I have any opinions whether it is gimmicky or high-schoolish. I don't really remember hs, so I'm not an expert on what is high-schoolish. My feeling is that one sentence won't kill a well written paper. If you have cohesion and flow, she'll be right.
