ABOUT THE PARTIES
Seattle Sound Party
The Seattle Sound Party is exactly what it sounds like…. Seattle. While their roots were based on bands like Mother Love Bone, and frontmen like Andrew Wood, the party has grown, and from the ashes of Wood’s initial creation, you have powerhouses like Soundgarden, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Alice in Chains, whose sound is hellbent on not sounding like ANYTHING else. Their party platform is a unique sound that could have ONLY come from the constant cloud-covered and dreary environment of Seattle Washington. Buck the system, do what you want, middle finger to the “norm” and be successful anyway!
Party Nominees: Layne Staley – Kurt Cobain – Eddie Vedder – Chris Cornell
Presidential Nominee Winner: Chris Cornell
Vice-Presidential Nominee Winner: Kurt Cobain
The Old Guard
We can all thank The Old Guard for building the foundation upon which Rock and Roll stands today. When the world was all bubble-gum and un-distorted guitar playing, The Old Guard dared to add a little fuzz. They got your attention, and made you pay attention to this new thing taking over the world. They built the roots to Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Thrash, and even Hair Metal. In a time of being prim and proper, The Old Guard preached Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll, and they will do WHATEVER necessary to maintain Rock’s roots.
Party Nominees: Axl Rose – Tommy Lee – Lars Ulrich – Ozzy Osbourne
Ozzy Write-In candidate: Eddie Van Halen
Presidential Nominee winner: Ozzy Osbourne
Vice-Presidential Nominee winner (chosen by the party leader):
Eddie Van Halen
Hard and Heavy Party
Take what was established with The Old Guard, and turn it up to 11! Hard and Heavy took their approach of getting people’s attention to a level that can’t be ignored. Blast beats, downtuned guitars, and even MORE brutal lyrics and vocals that no one has yet to match. But don’t think these guys are just all about screaming and violence. There’s a message in what they preach. While seemingly violent and aggressive in the mosh pits, Hard and Heavy still has a platform that promotes well-being, and healthy outlets… as well as care for your fellow man. There are STRONG family ties in the Hard and Heavy Party.
Party Nominees: Sully Erna – David Draiman – Ivan Moody – Corey Taylor
PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE WINNER: COREY TAYLOR
VICE-PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: SULLY ERNA
The Good Guy Party
Rock has a tendency to be lumped all together as an aggressive, hard-nosed “don’t give a f**k” personality in people, but there are plenty of Rockers who just want be good. The Good Guy Party represents some of the best. Members of the Good Guy Party typically love to Rock, and dance, and maybe fight a little, but will be right there to help you up off the ground, and buy you a beer. The Good Guys leave big tips to waiters and waitresses, promote love and well-being in their followers, and really do it just for fun. It’s not an obligation for members of the Good Guy Party to do the right thing… it’s just what they love to do. But don’t sleep on them just because they’re “good.” They still love to party and drink!
Party Nominees: Dave Grohl – Rob Zombie – Chester Bennington – Flea
