World Air Guitar Championship is Nordic Thunder-struck

Posted By on 08.27.11 at 01:26 PM

Nordic Thunder, the finger-picking, loincloth-wearing, surgery-undergoing subject of this week's B-Side cover story, took second place in the World Air Guitar Championship Friday night. Thunder, aka'd as Justin Howard, rocked out to some shredding rock and Rage against the Machine, but lost the title to The Devil's Niece, a German girl in a ballerina costume. I don't know much about air guitar championships, but I'm not surprised that's what it took to stop an axe-slaying viking.

Catch a video of the top three performers after the jump, and don't miss Howard's power slide-cum-stage dive at around 7:00. Sound familiar?

The guy really moves like a dancer, doesn't he?
