Nerd Bust!

Pinback, Goblin Cock, Thingy, Heavy Vegetable, Optiganally Yours, Other Men...man of a thousand bands Rob Crow has referred to the Star Wars film series in nearly all his musical projects:

"She purrs and sabers light, I thought of you, we breathe from the same mask." -- Pinback, "Victorious D"

"Help me OB1, me and the Rebel Alliance need your help." -- Thingy, "O.B.1"

"Jedi will crush the Sith, no surrender to the Dark Side." -- Rob Crow, "Jedi Master"

"Release them now [in 3D]! So, please, Lucas I'm waiting." -- Other Men, "Anaglyphic"

In addition, Thingy has an instrumental song inspired by Star Wars called "Kessel Run," which, according to Wookieepedia, is "an 18-parsec route used by smugglers to move glitterstim spice from Kessel to an area south of the Si'Klaata Cluster."

Crow's memorabilia collection reportedly includes a working R2D2 robot, comic books, a Super-8 film reel with scenes from the original movie, and an array of toys that extends to the main tool of his trade: he customized one of his guitar rigs to look like an X-wing fighter.
