Okay, so, The Protomen. I don’t talk about them much, so I think I have few followers who know who they are. So, for the uninitiated:
The Protomen are a rock group that perform jams heavily influenced by 80s music. And also happen to be about the Mega Man video games. They
twothree albums out right now. Act I, which is about Mega Man trying to free society from the iron-fisted rule of Dr. Wily (it’s a very interpretation of Mega Man) and Act II, which is a flash back to how Wily rose to power and how Dr. Light can’t do anything right. Oh, and also a Live album where they play a bunch of Queen songs, but that album has nothing to do with what I’m about to ramble about.
Both of their studio albums are Rock Operas/Concept Albums/Tell a story through the power of ROCK. And their next album, another studio album, is a covers album called “The Cover Up”. And I have a big stupid conspiracy theory about this album.
Turns out you are correct. At one of their concerts last year, I was talking with some of the band members after the show, and they were excitedly telling us how the covers album is gonna have a story too. Very good theory there.
