Submission + - Rock meets geek (youtube.com)

Dedokta writes: Cross dressing heavy metal band Mechanical Black have released a cover of the 80's pop hit Electric Dreams featuring elements of extreme geekiness that should excite a few Slashdot readers.

David Warhol, Earl Vickers, Elonka Dunin, Eric Allman, G Mark Hardy, George Sanger (and Cindy Moorhouse), Guido Van Rossum, James Gosling, Jeff Minter, Jennifer Reitz, John Draper, Marcus Ranum, Marshall Kirk McKusick, Nathaniel Borenstein, Richard Bartle, Bruce Schneier, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jackson, Ian Livingstone and John Resig
