Copey posted this in a comment on the previous post, and I’m sorry, but anything that makes me laugh that hard gets his own post.

Edit: Updated with Copey’s full version.

Copey, you rock.

If Nickelback was a tank:

I’m through with standing in line
As Deeps I’ll never get in
I just want to find a group
And Triumph badges win
This patch hasn’t turned out
Quite the way I want it to be

(Tell me what you want)

I want all Tier Nine
And never T-O-C
Gear good enough to go and PVP
Wanna steamroll content
With just a healer and me

(So what you need?)

I’ll need a LFG tool that’s got no limit
And bunch of tanking gear with stamina in it
Gonna join the 245 club
As DPS bow at my feet feet

(Been there, done that)

I want fifteen servers full of old huntards
I’m no longer limited to Dalvengar
Just hit the new button and
There’s an instance waiting for me

(So how you gonna do it?)

I’m gonna trade this spec for fortune and fame
I’ll stack stamina and hand the heals the blame

‘Cause we tanks just wanna be big rockstars
And gather all the loot and laugh from afar
The groups come easy and the deeps come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny ’cause sandwiches we won’t eat
And we’ll hang out in the Dalaran bars
No time between all the instance starts
Every good DPS
Gonna wind up there
No marks or crowd control
’Cause we just don’t care

And we’ll

Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I wanna be great like Ghost Crawler with out the hassles
I’m a well geared tank so I can be an asshole
Find a fisherman friend
So I can eat my meals for free

(I’ll have the dragonfin)

I’m gonna dress my bear butt
In a roguish fashion
Get a front door key to the Icecrown mansion
Gonna date a good healer that loves to
Spam her heals on me

(so how you gonna do it)

I’m gonna trade this spec for fortune and fame
I’ll stack stamina and hand the heals the blame

‘Cause we tanks just wanna be big rockstars
And gather all the loot and laugh from afar

And we’ll hang out in the Dalaran bars
No time between all the instance starts
Every good DPS
Gonna wind up there
No marks or crowd control
’Cause we just don’t care

And we’ll hide out in forum chat rooms
With the latest wow-heroes of
Today’s who’s who
They’ll get you anything
with that tankish style
Everybody’s got you
On their friends list dial
Well hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I’m gonna spam party chat
Turn on your mature censors
Gonna pop my pots
From a flask dispenser
Get old forum lurkers writing all my songs
About how if you’re a tank you can do no wrong

‘Cause we tanks just wanna be big rockstars
And gather all the loot and laugh from afar

    If I were a man, I’d record this for B3 and Copey. Maybe I will anyway, because it’s just that awesome. ;) Way to go, Copey! You win cookies and internets!

  8. Copey says:

    @Rayvynn

    If you are actually thinking about doing that let me know. I’ll see if I can finish up the song since I only did half.

  9. Paona says:

    Boo, Rayvynn beat me to it. ;_;

    But really, I’d love to see the rest of the filk! =D

  10. Lazaros of Llane says:

    I had considered it, too, but I think I’d be in over my head, considering I’ve done no real singing in 14 years, and have just started learning guitar. I wouldn’t want to inflict that on anyone.

    I’d love to hear someone do it, though.
