with the release of Mamma Mia, (which, if you didn't know, all the songs were previously abba songs that they just linked together as some sort of story.) I got to wondering what bands whose discographies could be sampled from to make a great musical. (Since my mom has the mama mia CD and it isn't to my liking, and I'm sure you wouldn't like it either, but if you do more power to ya.)


my vote goes to slayer just think of the potential:

Character 1: oh my god, what is this red stuff falling from the sky?
Character 2: It's RAINING BLOOD!!!!!!! from a lacerated sky!
(a couple of scenes later)

Character 2: I know why your prayers will never be answered!
Character 1: why not?
Character 2: GOD HATES ALL!!!!!!!!!!


i could go on for hours

anyway, go on and post some of your ideas, examples are preferred.

Sublime.
Naturally, it could be about a character's descent into drug addiction.

There is only one solution. We need to bomb outer space. That should show those terrorist bastards who's who

Green Day, with American Idiot obviously.

It could also contain Welcome to Paradise and a few other of their songs.

Trivium!!!

The Crusade could just be an 8 minute fight scene!!!
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

I think that a Black Flag musical would be a really good character study.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

I'd just say Rush. They'd have to play it live along with the acting though. (except Geddy wouldn't sing, the actor(s) would.)

who's who? my guesses are

writer but cant sing: kirk hammet

Cant get riff: Mustaine

Selfish: james

Am I right or are mustaine and hetfield switched? or are none of them in it?

That would be sweet, they could call it "The Wall"
Quote by GeneralGrim
So we had a music battle, copying what each other did and upping the ante and whatnot. After awhile of going nowhere, I said to the pianist "let's see you do this, asshole" played a single note... and bent it up a step. And left.
