Opening Deathcard

"Guitar Zeros", Way to Die #66, is the third death featured in the episode "Cure for the Common Death, Part I", which aired on March 22, 2009.


Li and Feng were devoted fans of heavy metal music who weren't thinking very logically. The loud, hard, beats of heavy metal was their passion. By day they worked as factory workers making plastic toys to export to the West. And by night, they rocked out to heavy metal until dawn break, the loud music blasting from their tiny apartment. Their jamming included air-guitars, air-drums, moshing, headbanging, and screaming. One night, they jump on and off their beds right after destroying their air guitars, dangerously close to an open window. Li jumps on the bed near the window, but he slips and falls right out the window 60-feet down to the pavement. Feng, who had just witnessed his roommate's demise, can't bare to be living without his lifelong friend, so he intentionally jumps off his bed right out the window after making one last Chinese warlord scream and he too, dies instantly on the sidewalk and abandons his and Li's apartment. Now, Li and Feng's corpses were lying lifeless on the sidewalk, only inches away from each other.

"Feng can't bear the thought of breaking up the band. He gives one last Chinese warlord scream and follows his rock-and-roll brother out of the window."
