Send me your strongest machine
Today's band is one I have seen three times and let me tell you, they put on a hell of a show. The Protomen have created a rock opera based around the Mega Man video games that is truly remarkable. Their first album begins with Dr. Light's creation of Protoman, and Protoman's fight and defeat at the hands of Dr. Wily's robot hordes. Light then creates Mega Man and attempts to keep him sheltered from the real world, but when Mega Man finds out what happened to his brother, he swears revenge on Dr. Wily. The second album is a prequel to the first album and chronicles the development of the technology to create the robots and Wily's rise to power. My favorite song is Vengeance, where Mega Man is fighting Dr. Wily's robots.
