    Otherwise I was thinking of starting a thread about bands that make obvious references to RPGs.

    I have two in mind, happens they are from the metal scene ! (is there a pattern here ?)

    First the very gruesome Gwar. I like their style and humor They're not quite PG-13 but I never heard of another band that looks like fantasy figurines



    The other I can think of is Bolt Thrower with their many album covers directly related to Games Workshop games.


    I don't think we should restrain to metal music but it seems the rest of the music business isn't dorky enough to enjoy RPG

    I don't know about actual RPG bands, but there are some that i like for specific settings. ie: Led Zeppelin for fantasy (kind of obviously i guess); Ozzy for a lot of grit (Rifts, for example. Gotta play War Pigs when fighting the CS), Godsmack for something dark and broody (Nightbane).

    Alright, *now* you can mock my taste in music.

    Not real big on Zeplin, but not bad musical taste, hippie.

    How about something like this, where they mention an RPG in the song?

    Deaf Pedestrians - Hail To The Geek

    I got a spiderman t-shirt
    I got Converse that are rotting off my feet
    I got a bad mustache
    a reoccurring rash
    and not a lot of cash
    I spend it on my stash
    Man it's good to be a geek

    Well it's good to be a geek
    It's good to be a creep
    It's good to draw my pictures
    that no one will ever see.
    It's good to be a geek
    It's good to be unknown
    It's good I'm never waiting
    right beside the telephone
    Cuz no one ever...

    I play dungeons and dragons
    I got a 13th level halfling fighter thief
    got seven hit die on my backstab

    sometimes you know it's good to be a geek.
    It's good to be a geek
    It's good to play the freak
    It's good to comb my mullet once every other week
    As far as I can see
    It's good to play the Wii
    Then stay up painting miniatures til 2 or 3
    Cuz no one ever...

    Chorus:
    Someday I'll learn to play guitar
    Start up a band and be a star
    And when you wind up pumping gas
    Just fill 'er up and kiss my a$$...

    I'm addicted to Star Trek
    I'm a Klingon speaking federation freak
    I find I'm more inclined
    to spend the bulk of my time
    on the starship enterprise
    than talking to girls I meet

    Well I never get the girl
    but I like to be alone
    cuz i can always m@sterb@te when there's no one home
    it's good to have a plan
    it's good to be the man
    it's good to download p0rn0 from a website in Japan
    cuz no one ever...

    Chorus:
    Someday I'll learn to play guitar
    Start up a band and be a star
    And when you wind up pumping gas
    Just fill 'er up and kiss my a$$...

    Ninth grade is when I got the swirlie
    tenth grade is when I got the indian burn
    four years of continuous wedgies
    wore nine pairs of briefs so they could all get a turn
    someday I'll buy a fancy condo
    someday I'll drive a car that's more than your house
    someday you'll kiss my a$$

    It's good to make some noise
    it's good to scream outloud
    it's good to feel immortal
    like your last name is McCloud
    it's good to be a geek
    its good to be unseen
    its good to watch the Wrath of Khan on a plasma screen
    it's good to be a geek
    it's good to be the man
    it's good to download p0rn0 from a website in Japan
    It's good to be a geek
    It's good to be unknown
    It's good I'm never waiting
    right beside the telephone
    Cuz no one ever...

    I got a bad mustache
    a reoccurring rash
    and not a lot of cash
    I spend it on my stash
    Man it's good to be a geek
    You know I don't intend
    To look like Boba Fett
    I got my Holland set
    Although it makes me sweat
    Man it's good to be a geek!
    Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.

    As far as songs related to gaming - none of them tops "d20" by Scare Bears.
    Get your D20's out men
    It's initiative time
    Pray to the gods that you don't die

    Roll an eighteen - that's a hit
    This ogre's going to die
    Twenty-eight plus damage adjustment
    He looked at me, shrugged it off, and smiled

    No, I will not let this fear take hold
    This beast will not win as long as I still stand
    My armor is strong, my honor won't fold
    It is my people, my life, my world I will defend

    I'm afraid my dexterity's to low
    Been rolling ones - twenty's never show
    Been hit so much the cleric's getting pissed
    The more I swing my sword, the more I miss

    I think the DM has forsaken us...
    I think the DM has forsaken us...
    I think the DM has forsaken us...
    I think the DM has forsaken us...
