Become a friend of SugarShock MySpace. Only if you are NOT Viking, because Sugar Shock friends/fans are never Viking.

There is also a website, but so far it only links back to the MySpace.

I wouldn't consider myself a viking, but I am Swedish, which is pretty much as close as it gets these days. Is that a problem?

Well, Brian Lynch seems to have befriended them, stating that he's "kind of a Viking".
I am friends! Yay!
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
from the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
The hammer of the gods
Will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying:
Valhalla, I am coming!

I am Viking!
We come from the land of the ice and snow,

In my head, I can only hear Jack Black.
So, if Vikings aren't allowed, does that include Fran Tarkenton or Bud Grant can't join?
Not even Olaf?
(By the way, the first Viking was a QB from the '70's while the second was their head coach for many years).
Americans!
I got a new friend! Well, four friends, to be precise. And they're looking for lyrics to Sugarshock songs. "We're looking for full lyrics to all Sugarshock songs." 'At's what eet said.

Lucky for me I attended a Sugarshock concert. Well, it was a rehearsal anyway. They practiced in the garage. Wade made me stay inside. But I caught a snippet I can share:

Electra meggga watt amplitude
Thatís what I bring
Itís what I brung
I can say it
I can play it
Itís what I sung
Electra megggga waaatt
is whaaat I brung
Is whaaat I brought
What you got?
What you got?

At least I think that was it, or something like it...hard to remember, really, because that thing in the house...kind of aggressive, hit me on the head...I lost a tiny bit of consciousness. But I'm okay! Really.

If I remember more I'll post it!
Ooh! And now we've even been noticed by Whedonesque, since Joss Whedon writes the comic based on the band, which is drawn by Fabio Moon!


It's like I've stepped through the mirror.
That's seven years bad luck right there.

Does your referring to their reference mean you've stepped back or that you've stepped through another mirror on that side Simon ? Either way I worry for the fabric of space and time - where's the Enterprise when you need her ?

(and what if you've been extensively invaded by vikings and are therefore probably partly one genetically ? Like an 'ik's worth maybe)
Why this Viking hate, I dont understand how the Vikings got such a bad rep, what about those of us that (probably) have some Viking heritage then ?

This is some kind of discrimination going on here, all Scandinavians and other honorary Vikings needs to rally together in defense of the poor Vikings :)
It's a long story, jpr. It involved his purpleness and a Viking Princess. I really don't want to go into it....
Might we say the Viking loathing is Aud, even?
Did... Did you just insinuate that I might be a Viking!?

May the wrath of Odin fall on you and your ships!
Does Asian Viking count?
Might we say the Viking loathing is Aud, even?

Did you just make a joke in two languages at the same time RhaegarTargaryen ? Cos that rules ;).
My niece has been touring w/her band Mutators (sounds a lot like Mutants huh?) and I'm pretty sure she saw SugarShock and heard this song:
o/~ I'm not saying that I'm better than you
I'm better than you
I'm better than you
I'm not saying I'm rubber
Nor did I in any way suggest you're glue o/~

I think she said the second verse went:

I never said you have cooties
you have cooties
you have cooties
I never called you a liar liar
And I never said your pants are on fire.
Nor did I imply that your pants are on fire.

But I could be wrong (and I thought Olaf was the perfect example for why Dandelion can not abide Vikings!).

I think Dandelion is in denial of the fact that she is in fact herself really a viking and she just isn't ready to accept her irresponsibilities as a viking.
You know what vikophobia really means, don't you?
Hey, I thought Olaf seemed a nice enough guy before Aud/Anya turned him into a troll, being transformed into a giant troll could change even the meekest persons outlook on life.
The whole being pelted with various meats and fruits when he tried to explain bit probably didn't help.

Even if there are few actual Vikings around today to feel slighted, doesnt mean Viking hate is ok.

Yea Vince, Vikophobia is a terrible thing, after all as Buffy pointed out The Vikings discovered America, long before that Columbus guy.
I like Vikings. Except for the moments of violent pillaging.
Does your referring to their reference mean you've stepped back or that you've stepped through another mirror on that side Simon ? Either way I worry for the fabric of space and time - where's the Enterprise when you need her?

In a parallel Universe, repairing rifts in the space/time continuum, of course.
Vikings, Alice in Wonderland references and Trek references...thank you, you have made my day...er...night.
Teachndoc...Vikings, Alice, and Trek...hmm... Another lyric pops to mind:

Down, down, warping down
Tin hatted, horned clown

That's all I got for the nonce.
My cockatiel occasionally proudly tells the world "I'm a viking!"
The tall blond one looks like Skwisgaar Skwigelf
The tall blond one looks like Skwisgaar Skwigelf

Actually, she looks like Aimee Mann from her appearance on Buffy.
