149: The Showdown, Part II

"Anything you can nerd, I can nerd better."  Whew, that last panel took FOREVER!  But it was so much goshdarn fun, and I love the way it turned out!  Now how about BANDS BANDS BANDS, eh?  First up is a pop rock band called Mando Diao, who have some really good songs that range from light rock to a more dance-pop oriented sound.  Here's a light rock song by them called "Down In The Past".  All hail Jorge from Spain for bringing us this video!  Next up we have a really great hard rock band called Fireball Ministry.  As Barcel from Poland, the man I have to thank for this band, put it: "a great band with a stupid name!"  Check out this video of their song called "Broken".  Awesome riff, nice growling vocals.  And lastly, a fantastic pop rock band from Uruguay that I have really grown to love over the last week.  They are called Cuarteto De Nos, and not only do they have a lot of really catchy songs, their lyrics and rhyme schemes are hilarious and spectacular.  I kept thinking to myself, "there's no way this guy can think of ANOTHER word that rhymes with - MOTHERF*** HE FOUND TWO?!?!"  Here's a Latin-styled pop rock song by them, with pictures for the non-Spanish speakers!  And because they deserve some more exposure, here's another video by them that it is absolutely hilarious.  It's a heartfelt love song called "Me Amo."  That's right, it's a love ballad titled "I Love MYSELF."  For this band we shall raise our voices and collectively thank Andres from Venezuela!
