In tribute to Brütal Legend, a biographical account of my youth, I'm offering this Audio V Rocker free to whoever introduces me to the best under-appreciated rock band. It's a futon chair with speakers near the head rest. If it's too loud, you're too old.
The chair is being provided by Mounts and More, a CSN store that specializes in TV mounts, projection screens, audio and video cables, and other electronics accessories. Since different people need different size mounts and screens, CSN generously offered this audio chair from another of their stores.
Due to shipping restraints, you must be in the United States or Canada to enter this giveaway.
This is how the giveaway works. Introduce me to a rock band, of any style and any era, that never received the popularity it deserved. It doesn't have to be completely obscure... just a band that many people haven't heard of, but one you're sure has earned its axe in Valhalla. For example, I'm a big fan of Corrosion of Conformity (COC). Another band I like that would qualify is Badlands.
Whatever band you choose, you must provide a link to the band's music so I can hear them. I listen to just about every style of rock. I like both heavy and light stuff. But, to guide you, my favorite music is stuff from the late 80s and early 90s: Metallica's black album, Pantera, Alice in Chains, Guns 'n' Roses' Appetite for Destruction, Anthrax's Sound of White Noise, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, The Scorpions, Skid Row, etc. It can be dirt simple too, like Gruntruck or Helmet. It can be as laid back and light as Steve Miller Band or as rough and heavy as Down and Children of Bodom. I do prefer stuff with some melody, though.
I'll pick the winner next Monday, May 11. You must be willing to email me your address, so I can pass that info along to Mounts and More and they can ship you your rocker for free. I'm looking forward to hearing what y'all come up with!
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, but post your recommendation as a comment here as well so everyone can hear the bands.
