Has anyone else here besides Dethbryte actually listened to it? I don't even like Andrew WK but I liked this album. His version of Soldiers of Sorrow is badass. Also he rocked the hell out of Amuro Forever.

It's actually pretty awesome. But I'm a Andrew W.K. fan anyways.

Rammstien would be top of my list to do this project.

Haha, no. I don't mind Rammstein, but not for this.

Although I am clueless as to who Andrew W.K. is but a Gundam Rock Album is definitely a great idea!!

Looks like the recessions hitting pretty hard for Sunrise to ask a no-talent ass hat like AWK instead of someone who can actually turn a decent tune.

Rammstien would be top of my list to do this project.

This will be quite interesting to hear actually. At first when reading the title, i thought it was going to be a collection of OP and ED's, though going with the score for the original series makes this all the more interesting. Can't wait for the end result.
