I searched, so if this is duplication, smite me.

The Dear Hunter + 1984 + Daft Punk + Mega Man = The Protomen


To clarify:

if you took the basic idea of Mega Man(yes, the video game from the 80's),
fleshed it out into a 1984-style dystopia,
set the story to music (like TDH),
and had a band full of helmet-wearing enigma men,

you'd get The Protomen.


This makes my nerd heart happy. Their sound is nothing to scoff at (though you ultra-1337 music types may very well scoff). It certainly beats the hell out of The Megas.

Myspace 'em. Their Act II came out not too long ago.

Power to the nerdy people.

it's hard to cover Queen and pull it off, but that cover was fantastic. Fair play.

I really like that 80's feel to the band.

I really recommend Act II.
