No, we're not talking about Bruce Banner and the Gamma Rays (Come On Ang Lee!
, 2003 Capitol Records). The real Hulk Hogan plays bass and made several real musical recordings in 1995 for a real compact disc called Hulk Rules!
. That's the funniest thing I could possibly say, AND IT'S NOT A JOKE.
We're already painfully aware of the strange wonders of celebrity being used as leverage to make records
, but it is almost forgivable based on intention (educational). Hogan had a well known love of music but it wasn't until after he became the scourge of t-shirts everywhere that he had the resources and the complete lack of foresight to make an album that sounds like it could be a prop in a Judd Apatow movie. With titles like "Hulkster's Back", "Hulkster In Heaven" and "Beach Patrol", it's obvious we are working with some deep thematic material, lyrical prowess, and inventive chord progressions. Psyche! It's terrible!
