Musicals of a different sort

Posted By on Fri, Jan 29, 2010 at 9:00 AM

G.I. Joe (despite the travesty that was last year's movie) will always be cool. Cobra helps. Ninjas are pretty badass -- even the well-informed Josh and Chuck of "Stuff You Should Know" spent a good portion of this week's podcast discussing Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes. But a G.I Joe musical? Could this be the death knell of the franchise, or is it surprisingly badass?

Yes, it is badass. Why? It's about fucking COBRA, not. G.I. Joe. Cobra was always far more interesting than the Joes, anyway. Is it as cool as Man Factory's Street Fighter Rock Opera? Only time will tell. Certainly, it beats the hell out of the stack of crap that was the Protomen's series of albums based on Mega Man (seriously, they're awful and uninspired -- avoid them at all costs).
