Trial of the Century (book)
The year is 2517. The guitar has been outlawed as a dangerous weapon. The subversive form of music known as “Roland Rock” has been banned from the airwaves. The signer-songwriter, Azhular, faces charges of being “P.I.” (Philosophically Inaccurate). The day of his trial has finally arrived. As a glorious sunrise lights the eastern sky with brilliant hues of red and gold, the Channel 98.6 news reporter, TWISTY TRUTHY, sings the Title Song, TRIAL OF THE CENTURY, which begins:
It’s bigger than an earthquake, more exciting than a war.
Better than a football game -- you’ll never guess just what’s in store.
‘Cause who would have dreamed, and who would have thought
That we’d see the trial of the King of Roland Rock!
CHORUS: It’s the trial, the trial of the century.
The biggest trial, the biggest trial in history.
