The Rockafire Explosion

The Rockafire Explosion is an animatronic band that played in Showbiz Pizza Place Restaurants until the 90's when they all closed. The Rockafire Explosion is also the name of a documentary about the Rockafire Explosion, it's inventor, and a tenacious community of fans who held on until the Rockafire Explosion's recent revival on Youtube.

Trailer for the Upcoming Documentary

The Rockafire Explosion has reemerged on Youtube, on multiple channels. On Aaron Fechter's channel, who is the creator of Rockafire Explosion, the robot band plays popular songs such as MGMT's "Electric Feel" (the band also appeared in the official video) and Usher's "Love in the Club." Aaron Fechter programs the band to play songs chosen by the highest bidders. The band is scheduled to play Nine Inch Nail's "1,000,000" which I am particularly excited about.
