The Parselmouths

Ah, the Parselmouths, those snotty Slytherin Girls ( and boy) that make me laugh even though I'm not a Slytherin.
I love evil wizard rock, even though I'm not a big evil fan. I've even started an evil wrock project (Magic Most Evil, but that's another article).
But anyway, I like the Parselmouths because they're likeably evil. They're not murdering fascists (Voldemort) or crazy blood thirsty insane women (Bellatrix). They're funny teenage girls (and boy) who's parents are alledgedly death eaters or something like that from what I gather.
They're just fun people who wonder why Hermione's name sounds whiny with a guitar in hand. I think that's most of what makes them likeable in the first place. So yay for non-evil evil wizard rock!

Songs That Referance Outside Stuff

I realized something about wizard rock the other day: We like a lot of stuff besides Harry Potter, and we put it in our songs about Harry so it's doubly awesome. Or they're parodies of our favorites songs. Here's some of my favorites.

Spells and Scars by Oliver Boyd and the Remembralls- This is one of the only, if not the only song on this list where the referance is not made in the lyrics. It's in the guitar solo. And it's the Dr. Who theme song. Lemme set the record straight, If there's one addiction that rivals that of Harry Potter, it's Dr. Who. So I fangirled when I heard this song. Nice job, Christian.
Ginny Is  A Punk Rocker- Whompy parodies the Ramones! Based on the landmark Sheena Is A Punk Rocker, Ginny had my cracking up.
Dog Days by the Deathsticks-  As well as my other addictions ( I need therapy I suppose) Florence and the Machine is my biggest music one. So of course I nearly died listening to this. It's a diferent kind of death song as well. It's not weepy or sad. It's just, RUN HARRY HE'S DEAD THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO STOP BEING ANGSTY IT'S ANNOYING! (My thoughts for most of OOTP). I also like the playing of the grape spoons.
Cedric by the Moaning Myrtles- It's a Twilight referanced song, although I don't like Twilight, it's ridiculously funny, just like everything else the Moaning Myrtles do.
