THE ROCK ONS are Canada’s only zombie SHOCK ROCK band. The undead members perform decked in a "punked up" camouflage that compliments the appearance of their decaying flesh. THE ROCK ONS simultaneously present their political attitude with farcical flare while providing a high energy performance.

Biography

THE ROCK ONS were concocted by Professor Johnny Rock, a military scientist in The United States. As part of an on-going series of biological warfare experiments, the professor was able to re-animate four fallen U.S. troops. Once zombified, the four soldiers were reprogrammed in a psychological experiment to reject and contradict their military training. The result was more than successful in terms of the professor's views. But the U.S. military saw no benefits in the experiments and shut the project down. In an act of defiance and rage, Professor Rock smuggled his band of zombies from the States and took refuge in Canada. The professor needed to find a way to present his findings and send out his message to the world.
Thus, THE ROCK ONS were born...

The undead members perform decked in a "punked up" camouflage that compliments the appearance of their decaying flesh. THE ROCK ONS simultaneously present their political attitude with farcical flare. With songs like "Puritanical Regions", "Lets Destroy The Economy" and "T.V. Lies", The Rock Ons deliver loud, electrifying music with a political message. With "SK8N' N' DrinkN'", "Squat" and "(I’m In Love With A) Punk Rock Lesbian" the band displays their sense of humour. Their influences are as diverse as bands such as Suicidal Tendencies, The Dead Kennedys, and The Sex Pistols to filmmakers such as Michael Moore and George A. Romero.

THE ROCK ONS is an act to see LIVE. The band has played numerous shows throughout Ontario with some notable bands including Die Mannequin, The 3Tards, Dame, and dd/mm/yyyy.
