What Has Eight Necks And Is Awkward?

Posted by on March 22, 2012


To Biohazard’s credit, they did their best. Last month on Fuse, the band were invited to play the Rock Ock, the world’s largest multi-necked stringed instrument. The 40-pound monstrosity was designed by DGN Custom Guitars after being commissioned by the National Guitar Museum for their traveling exhibit, “Guitar: The Instrument That Rocked The World.” It is fully playable, but that doesn’t mean that it looks cool being played. In fact, it looks kind of like a scene from one of former bassist Evan Seinfeld’s porn movies. The band played a little bit of  their 1989 hit “Punishment” in the segment, which is fitting considering that even though they had their game faces on, it didn’t look too much like they enjoyed themselves. This wasn’t helped by the fact that at least one neck was out of tune. At the end of the day, Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick is really the only person we could imagine pulling this off. However, if you wanna check out all 154 frets of the Rock Ock, go to its Facebook page, and like the shit out of it.
