For those about to trock, we salute you!

First there was Filk. And then Wizard Rock. And now there's Trock or Timelord Rock, music dedicated to all things "Doctor Who." As the Doctor himself might say: "What??!" I had no idea such a thing existed, which is not exactly shocking, but color me giddy.

So what exactly does Trock sound like? Here's the band IO9 says is basically the Cadillac of the genre. They're called Chameleon Circuit, and they've done a nifty song about the popular series three episode, "Blink," called, shockingly, "Blink." Here it is. It's quite catchy!



You can watch a video of the band themselves performing the song at the IO9 link above. Now I'm curious as to what other nerd-tastic genres exist. I swear, if there's a Rupert Giles tribute band out there, send me the CD now!

Funnily enough I just discovered the existence of TRock via this month's "Doctor Who Magazine" Letter from the Ed - but I hadn't got as far as Googling for the band so thanks for the YT link...

(Haha! The word verification for this comment is larry!)

Wow that was a pretty cool video.

For the life of me though I don't think I've seen that episode, and I though that I've seen all the episodes with Tenant as the Doctor

there is Harry Potter music I think.

Yes - Wizard Rock it's called...

The World is a Playground - You should probably hunt the episode down, like... right now. It's really a good one.

Aww, Sally!

Also,I come to find that my preconceived notion of filk is incorrect! How did that happen?

Just when I thought the universe could not possibly be more splendid than it already is and you bring me this wonderfulness.

I love the interwebbies.
