The world is a weird place, in a good way. If you want to find something on the internet, odds are it’s there. Let’s say, for example, you want to find a heavy-metal (the music, not the material) tribute to Elon Musk’s big ol’ brain. A little bit of Googling, and hey, what do you know, it exists, and it is interesting.

The band Raptor Command exists “to raise awareness of and promote Elon Musk’s futurist ideas and visions for the future of humanity through the medium of heavy-metal music and subculture,” per its website. The group’s first single, “Elon: Champion for Humanity” is available on YouTube, and man, it’s a trip.

Look, I’m not one to rag on artistic expression. Hell, I nearly went to grad school for an MFA in poetry, of all things. I just think it’s a unique and — yeah, let’s stick with unique — method of promoting Elon’s ideas. That guitarist has more talent in his right forefinger than I have in all 10 of my own, so I really shouldn’t be one to talk.
