30 Seconds With Roky Moon

Rocks Off sat down with front man of arguably the No. 1 act in Houston at the moment, Roky Moon of Roky Moon & BOLT to see what we could learn about the glam-rocker in 30 seconds.

Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?

Roky Moon: That "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor" song. It represents a whole culture that I just despise. Cruzin' around, listening to Drowning Pool or Nickleback or some garbage, watching MMA and chugging Jäger bombs. We all know the type...ugh.

Note: this is the third time a musician has mentioned "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor" [Drowning Pool's "Bodies"] in this column as the worst song ever.

RO: What is the best lyric in the world?

RM: "It's not the side effects of the cocaine. I'm thinking that it must be love." - David Bowie, Station to Station

RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you. What do you do?

RM: Return to sender.

RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what is the ultimate gig?

RM: Live at the Gates of Hell! I ride in on Cerberus and flames shoot out of all the instruments!
