Top 10 Pop-Star Bobbleheads We'd Like To See
The good people over at Aggronautix have done it again. The toy company has been releasing bobbleheads of punk-rock luminaries such as GG Allin and the Descendents' Milo Aukerman for the past year.
Rocks Off has been lucky enough to snag a few. Sitting a few feet from us right now are the two versions of Allin (one dirty; one even dirtier), plus Milo Hamilton clutching his microphone decked out in his trademark horned-rim glasses. [Ed. Note: Please retire already.]
A few weeks back, the company sent us pictures of their new additions, which include Andrew WK - who we may well be seeing at the Vans Warped Tour while you read this; why don't you go ahead and check over at @hprocksoff - and The Plasmatics' Wendy O. Williams. They have also rolled out a smaller version of Allin, the perfect size for your car's dashboard.
This got us to thinking about the bobbleheads we would like to see. Lemmy and Johnny Cash have been bobbled, as has Glenn Danzig. But we think that there are plenty of poppers who could use the big-head treatment.
And yes, that is what she said.

1. Courtney Love: Why not make a tiny bobbled Love, with a tiny cigarette and her own personal bobblehead assistant clutching an iPhone at all times to catch all the action? Somewhere along the line, we remember seeing a Kurt Cobain doll as well. Put these two together to live on together, a la Toy Story.
2. Miley Cyrus: If you have been following the tabloid blogs, you will shamefully see that Miley Cyrus is quickly heading straight past Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera and straight into full-on soft-core porn territory. Just ask Perez Hilton, who thought it prudent to flash a picture of the child's vagina on Twitter.
3. Lady Gaga: Yes, we know. Rocks Off is turning into Gaga Off lately. But the chick is interesting as shit. These things could be sold at a premium at her shows and people wouldn't care about the cost at this point. Make them naked or drape them in cigarette butts. Pretty anything you could put on them would constitute a possible Gaga wardrobe choice. Ripped-up copy of a Joel Osteen book? Why not?
4. Meat Loaf: We went back and forth on this one: Which Meatloaf should we honor? Bob from Fight Club, the bus driver from Spice World, or the classic tattered tuxedo Meat from the Bat Out of Hell era? We went with the latter. He's here in town in August at House of Blues. Maybe this one can happen so he can sign it for us?Next Page
