[edit] Proposed Canon

Rock music, according to Stanley, is the highest, most Titanic music there is. This belief is also held by Prince Sammy of Haggar, who lives by a "great truth of the Titans" that "there's only one way to rock."Text 7

Stanley also claims "Rocking Out," which includes spontaneously generating arena rock music and wicked guitar solos, is better than Dance-Fighting. So far, only the Arkenhammer is known to allow Rocking Out.

[edit] Speculation

Stanley's claims may be exaggerations. Book 1 featured one fight between Stanley (Rocking Out) vs. mostly Transylvito units using show tunes. Stanley's side suffered many losses and had to retreat from the hex under the cover of Foolamancy. While this incident does not prove that Dance Fighting is superior to Rocking Out, it does demonstrate that Rocking Out forces are still vulnerable to "less Titanic" but numerically superior opponents.

[edit] Real World References

Rock music is a real world genre of music that, in its most basic form, heavily features guitars and a strong back-beat from a rhythm section consisting of a bass guitar, drums and/or piano, organ or keyboard.[1]

Elvis Presley, in whose image the Titans are modeled, is known colloquially as the "King of Rock 'n' Roll," further supporting Stanley's allegations that Rock is the most Titanic of musical forms.
