Remember that scene at the beginning of "Back to the Future" where Marty McFly hooks up his guitar to Doc Brown's giant speaker? You know, so he can play it so loud that the soundwave sends him flying? That was cool.
Another thing that's pretty cool is this new line of guitars from instrument maker Peavey, with designs featuring some of the most popular characters in the DC Universe! Check out the press release then catch up with me at the bottom of the post:
