After a chilling discovery involving current Chicago US Air Guitar favorite Nordic Thunder, OLD GLORY swings his axe of freedom for truth, justice, and the 2011 US Air Guitar Championship.
LEGENDS: Hot Lixx Hulahan
So much of US Air Guitar’s history is inexorably tied to the antics of HOT LIXX HULAHAN (Craig Billmeier) that it was nearly impossible to choose which highlights and anecdotes to include on his Legends card. It was doubly a pain in the ass to write his back matter because I couldn’t count on him to do it for me like he has for RDC, Dreamcatcher, Björn and C-Diddy. Here’s how it all...
USAG Champions: Dreamcatcher, a bag of Cheetos,...
In an age when most people are bombarded by social networks, smartphone notifications, and online digital trading cards, it’s refreshing to know that there’s still one man with the cajones to sign off. “There’s no room in these daisy dukes for an iphone, man.

I am the terror that flaps in the night
Clayton Hauck Photography A new performer, BALD É, has drawn a bead on our kickoff show (May 12) in Chicago. Like the country he’s come to symbolize, it’s hard to say whether Bald E’s intentions are good or evil – but he sure as shit is terrifying.

LEGENDS: Björn Türoque finishes second
Author of To Air is Human (wherein he coined the word “dick-do,” an endearing term bestowed upon him by his mother at a disturbingly young age), star of the hit documentary Air Guitar Nation, and 7-time second-placer, it is only fitting that air guitar wunderkind BJÖRN TÜROQUE (Dan Crane) is our second release in the LEGENDS trading card series. He comes in right after last...
USAG Champions: Romeo DanceCheetah ain't no pussy
ROMEO DANCECHEETAH (Matt Cornelison), is known for combining his Midwest work ethic with that breakdance robot funk from the jungles of Zambia. He’s known for taking the 2010 Championship Belt and representing the Stars and Stripes at the World Championships in Oulu, Finland. And now, he’s known as a bona fide Champion. Romeo DanceCheetah’s name represents the style of air...

US Finals Will Be Held 7/23 in CHICAGO!
For nearly a decade, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and DC have consistently outbid Chicago for the honor of hosting the US Air Guitar National Finals. But Chicago’s audiences and, most of all, her regional champions, have made an inarguable case for their beloved “Shy” in 2011. After hearing the announcement,...
