Rock Sugar | Don't Stop The Sandman

Rock Sugar - Music

What do you get when you mix Journey's Don't Stop Believin' with Metallica's Enter Sandman? You get Rock Sugar! Guess what else? IT'S NOT BAD!

The music video (posted here) starts off with text:

"In 1989, Hollywood Heavy Metal band Rock Sugar was stranded on a deserted island.

For the last 20 years, the only music they had to listen to was the 80's pop CD collection of a 13 year old girl.

And now...

Rock Sugar has come home."

The music is as good, as it is funny. The vocals are spot on, the pace is perfect, and they did a really good job of covering Metallica. While I'm still not sure if Rock Sugar is a spoof, or just an awesome, original hybrid mix... the are unarguably entertaining.

The video is already somewhat of a Youtube phenomenon, with over 150,000 (currently, as I type this post). It had a 3,000 hit increase within the last 24 minutes on Youtube. I'm sure you'll be hearing about Rock Sugar, if you haven't already.
