Pluto Rocks?

With the recent demotion of Pluto, a Canadian group calling itself SubPlot A has released a song protesting its dwarf status and is even considering donating part of the profits towards promoting Pluto planethood.

(Pluto Rocks)Pluto got a bum deal.

On August 24, 2006, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) decided to demote Pluto to "dwarf planet" status. This news has been met with immediate outrage from scientists, parents, children and former children, and all those who share a non-gravitational affinity for our distant and benevolent neighbor.

Well, if they wanted to screw a planet they should have picked Uranus.

You can listen to the song over here, but for those who lack the time to enjoy the rhythms, here is a partial listing of lyrics to Pluto Rocks!

So smart and so smug, so proudly pedantic
Can't you be a scientist and still a romantic

Don't you still love him, don't you still need him
Don't you want your great great grandkids to meet him

I don't care what people say, you'll always be mine
I don't care what the experts say, you'll always be my number nine

Pluto rocks, in a vacuous void
Grandfather Pluto, he's no asteroid

Pluto rocks, stop the attack
Grandfather Pluto, you gotta bring him back

You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
