I've never understood RnR. How does 80s/90s rock music fit a 1940s Hollywood street theme?
surley something more appropriate to the period would be better its like putting space mountain on Fronteirland
I'd rather have Aerosmith than some lame Disney group. It's quite simple. The Disney Imagineers wanted to do something different with Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. They asked Aerosmith if they wanted to be part of it. And at the time of the ride's development, Aerosmith was very popular.
An besides, that song was cheesy, that movie was ridiculous, and all of it marked the beginning of Aerosmith completely selling out. Hahahaha!
(that single, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry doing a GAP commercial, and the band playing with nsync at the SuperBowl halftime show were 1-2-3 strikes!)
I would just like to point out that the Tyrannosaurus Rex, from the Cretaceous period, totally doesn't belong anywhere called "Jurassic" whatever....
Sometimes, you need to just suspend disbelief and meet them halfway. They needed an E ticket ride in DHS. People like roller-coasters. I got nothing either. For good or ill, it could have been Bon Jovi, though....
The ride is at the end of Sunset Blvd. The real Sunset Blvd is home to several clubs where some big rock bands in the 80s frequently played before they got big, particularly at Whiskey-A-Go-Go. It's a terrible fit because the time period makes no sense, but there you go.
Sunset Boulevard is supposed to be modern with retro touches, isn't it? That's why the Tower of Terror is so decrepit and ancient. It makes sense to have a modern(ish) recording studio.
