ROCK MUSIC: If it's too loud, turn it down.
Nuts to that. Around here, we turn it to 11.
Marvel and tremble at the formation of
the all-E2 band.
The mission: to harness the musical resources of E2 and to create the world's largest touring rock band.
It's quite simple. You are a noder, you play an instrument; you are a member. The definition of "instrument" is left up to you. Do you enjoy the screamy pseudo-musical sounds made by your shower when the water is heating up? Perhaps you're a closeted plumbing virtuoso.
This is not a joke. It won't be easy. We will rule the world.
A band this mammoth will, of course, need to have sections. We are truly a rock orchestra, but we sure as fuck aren't the Electric Light Orchestra. Or Mannheim Steamroller.
Thus far, we have 105 members. This is pathetic. /msg yours truly to be assimilated into the greatness.
Sections are flexible. If you play several instruments and would like to be assigned to more than one section, just let me know. I'm sure you can see the holes. Let's fill 'em. Anyone who claims they can sing will be in Vox, along with whatever else. Currently, the standings are:

Now that we have a method of communication, Nanobot Deathmatch is freed to operate on a cellular basis if need be. Organize your local rockbots; WE ARE ALL NANOBOT DEATHMATCH. Imagine... many small bands all playing under the same name which can, at any time, unite like Voltron and inflict the ROCK on the world at large. This, my friends, is open source rock and roll.
You may have questions, such as:
- How will we practice?
- How will we write songs?
- Where the hell can we possibly perform?
- Are you fucking crazy?
My friends, together we can work it out
Holy shit! Let's ROCK!
'Twas the rock and roll creation,
'Twas a terrible big bang,
'Twas the ultimate mutation,
Yin was searching for his Yang
And he looked and and he saw that it was good.
WARNING: Joining Nanobot Deathmatch will place you in the rockbots
usergroup, unless you specifically ask me
not to add you. There is the potential for a high volume
