Here's a big glass of WTF for your Friday -- EA Mythic and Blue Oyster Cult have teamed up to create a musical tribute to the "Dwarf Slayer" profession in Warhammer Online with a song titled "Kiss My Axe (While I Drink My Beer)". I didn't even know that members of Blue Oyster Cult were still alive, let alone still making music, but apparently the lead singer of the band, Eric Bloom, is a huge fan of video games and science fiction and fantasy novels, and is an active Warhammer Online player. Neat!
You can grab the MP3 of the song here. It's worth a listen, and actually pretty awesome, if you like nerdy rock music. What do you think?
