Wizard Rock. For some reason I was watching Rock the Douche or whatever it's called to see what the new hip rock bands people are listening to are these days and there was an MTV news report about Wizard Rock...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wb9adl1Lrd8&feature=related
This one is year old, the one I saw today says there are aprox 500 wizard rock bands.


And yes... The phenomenon has hit us close to home.

Whatever floats your boat I guess, but I may never flip on mtv again. (unless it's headbangers ball)

You mean you're still watching MTV?

This is bad, but it's not a new low. Rock has gone lower.
Death to Ovation haters!

I've known about this for a while, and I must say there are a few good wizard rock bands out there. Most are pretty much worthless, but there are a few out there that aren't so bad.

I really don't see how it's bad. It's just fun, and sometimes that's all music should be.

Sometimes? Music IS ALWAYS serious buisness.

I kid. Music is supposed to be fun and enjoyable, and they are having fun trying to make music. I emphasize the trying part and they really do remove the "enjoyable" aspect of music from it.

I actually knew about this long before. My sister goes to wizard rock concerts.

Knowing the books will not help the music sound any better. Unless they give me wizard powers to better interpret the tones.

I thought this was gonna be some sort of strange music where they dressed up in gowns with pointy hats and long white beards and sung really long stupid songs about dragons and knights with stupid solos.

I nearly threw up when they considered Led Zep wizard rock.

Ya they based songs on LOTR, but LOTR is pretty badass with all the wars and fighting. Harry Potty is like negative badass, anti-ass if you will.

EDIT: That Anchorhead video is actually pretty good. Not a fan of Star Wars but that was pretty good.
