Rock ‘n’ Roll Theme

0

I want to try a rock ‘n’ roll theme running through the house (my wife isn’t all that excited about this idea — wait ’til she hears about the monster theme…).

The challenge will be avoiding something that’s overbearing, while still having some visual impact moving from room to room.

It should be a fun challenge.

I’d like to incorporate some of the following musicians and bands:

 

The Julie Ruin

 

 

 

The Rolling Stones

 

 

 

 

Björk

 

 

 

Prince & Tom Petty

 

 

 

The Afghan Whigs

 

 

 

The Pixies

 

 

 

Valerie June

 

 

 

PJ Harvey

 

 

 

The Doors

 

 

 

Sleater-Kinney

 

 

 

The Kills

 

 

 

The Who

 

 

 

The Pretenders

 

 

 

The Clash

 

 

 

The I Don’t Cares

 

 

 

Best Coast

 

 

 

Van Halen

 

 

 

Mark Lanegan

 

 

 

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

 

 

 

AC/DC

 

 

 

Art of Noise

 

Ok, that last one was mostly a joke. I remember when the video first came out and hating it, but then eventually being mesmerized by it — like a dog that’s so ugly it’s cute. If you made it to the end of the video without turning it off, good luck keeping the tune out of your head now. You’re welcome.

In our last house, we used one bedroom as an office. We did a “British” theme that included a mural of the Union Jack…

… so The Who may not make the cut this time (that mural took three days and a lot of blue painter’s tape — not to mention a whole lot of cussing).

I would like to do a mural in the new house, but still working on what it will be.
