You’ve seen them turn into superheroes and dinosaurs. You’ve seen their Wizard of Oz homage. Now see the best marching band in college football (hailing from Ohio State Univeristy) show their appreciation for heavy rock riffs in a performance that put every Super Bowl halftime show to shame.

Half the fun here is not knowing what shape the group will take for a given band—Scorpions, the Rolling Stones, and The Edgar Winter Group all get their due—but we have to voice our love for the mechanical simulacrum that accompanies The Who’s “Pinball Wizard.”  

Man, I wanna march and blare all night—and rest my feet all day.
