The Rock-afire Explosion is considered by many to be the greatest animatronic rock band of all time. In the 1980s it was synonymous with ShowBiz Pizza Place restaurants, for which it was specifically designed. Its combination of three full stages, incredible music talent, amazing cast of characters, and sophisticated animation have left an endearing mark on the hearts of its fans.
The Rock-afire Explosion has been relatively absent from the public's view for nearly two decades, however, a new interest has emerged because of the Rock-afire's presence on YouTube
. There have been many blogs, printed articles, and a documentary film
to commemorate this newfound interest in the Rock-afire Explosion band.
