The Good Phight's Bloggers as Awesome Rock Anthems

So, if you'll forgive some creative interpretation of the term "rock anthem," I hope you'll find the following a good summarization of some of TheGoodPhight's more notable bloggers. Originally published at Phrozen's Notes.

WholeCamelsParadise City, by Guns and Roses. "Take me down to The GoodPhightCity, where the field is green and the bloggers are witty." Those might not be the lyrics, but they should be.

Taco PalThunderdome, by Pink Cream 69. “You’ve got the right to win or lose… IN THE THUNDERDOME LOGICDOME.” Taco’s gonna win. You must be the other guy. Wet LuzinskiDiggin’ on James Brown, by Tower of Power. “Ah! Piggy wiggy!” Ok, it’s not a rock anthem, but it’s still awesome. A homage to the hardest working man in show business meets the hardest working man in the sportsblog-poetry business. Remember The PhitansThe Rime of the Ancient Mariner, by Iron Maiden. “With my crossbow, I shot the Albatross.” The greatest musical composition of all time. Based on one of the greatest written works of all time. JReedThe Call of Ktulu, by Metallica. Enough said. Veni, Vidi, ViciThe Body of an American, by The Pogues. "What to say about this piece of work... natural po-lice... at five o’clock in the evening, every bastard there was pesky." So, it’s not really a rock anthem, but whatever.

Of course, the real song is pretty good too.

SchmenkmanScatman, by Scatman John. “I’m the S(t)atman!.” Not a rock anthem, either. Not rock at all, really, and has nothing to do with baseball. But, if you excuse the misspelling, it’s right on. “I hear you all ask about the meaning of s(t)at, well I’m the professor…”

JoecatzPassion Rules the Game, by The Scorpions. “When passion rules the game, I ain’t got no control, when my heart’s in flames.” Between Grandpa and Joecatz Jr, there’s some obvious ‘passion for the game’ in that family. Props. Plus, “Good luck is everywhere,” so sayeth Catztradamus. Fuqua ManuelMTA, The Kingston Trio. “Well let me tell you a story of a man named Charlie…” Not really rock, and it’s about the Boston MTA, but it’s a damn good toe-tapping song, and it’s about a man named Charles Fuqua Manuel who goes round and round and round… LeQuan Rock the Casbah, by The Clash. Stop the cashbox. Clean the catbox. Lock the taskbar. Lequan don’t like it. What the whatwhat? Honorable Mentions:

Phrozen - Happy Boy, by The Beat Farmers. Take Me Out to the Ballgame? Pssh. During the Seventh Inning Stretch at the home games of the Fairbanks Goldpanners, this song is played instead. Hubba hubba hubba hubba hubba! ZooWithRoyBuzz Saw, by The Turtles. A bit of a throwback, but still awesome. Who uses organs in rock any more. Or listens to LPs. Or goes to zoos. Great stuff. Ruben AmaroBreakin’ the Law, by Judas Priest. $50 million for Jonathan Papelbon? Plusses and minuses, ups and downs; but that's just not right. Chase UtleyKashmir, by Led Zeppelin. Enough said.
