The Bizarros - Hero Tomorrow Soundtrack

We're honored to have many incredible musical artists in our film, so this is the first of many entries that feature them all.

I came upon the Bizarros when I popped into Time Traveler Records in Akron. I asked Lonnie behind the counter for a recommendation on some local bands, and he turned me on to The Bizarros. The tune 66-77 is what kicks off our film. It includes one of my favorite lyrics ever -- "I can't explain it - just a mutant variation of the kind of air we all used to breathe. We're all living up here in our delusion of a war with stories no one believes."

From The Bizarros Website:
Was it the Akron water? The smell of rubber in the air? Or was it the overwhelming boredom with 70's rock music that caused these sons of rubber factory workers to take action? Whatever the case, in the late 1970's the Bizarros swam against the current of mainstream rock & roll.

The Bizarros had various releases in the 1970's, including their self-titled album on Mercury Records. In 2003, they completed their first new album in 20 years and released "Can't Fight Your Way Up Town From Here."
