Epically bad teen Christian rock band becomes internet phenom

"Final Placement" is a teen Christian Rock band from Midland, Texas. Dangerous Minds more or less discovered this video of the band earlier this week, and internet infamy exploded.

Sneering at off-key amateur god-pop is easy enough, but what's interesting about the story is this: the young man who plays guitar in this video jumped right into the comment thread, and owned up to how epically awful it was. "I am not in the band. I helped them out on this song, unfortunately," he says. "The guitar solo I played— hate it. It deserves to get ripped."

Not everyone feels that way. Someone took his guitar solo and made a loop of it.

To top it all off, the guest-blogger who spotted this over at DM, and is engaging with the guitarist in that thread, is none other than Brad Laner of the band Medicine. Internet gold.
