Pale Horse

From Rocklopedia Fakebandica
Jump to navigationJump to search

From the comic book Watchmen (1986). In the background of the comic, sorry, "graphic novel," are mentions of this band, who represent an invented punkish-gothish youth subculture/gang called "Knot Tops." They're pretty popular, playing New York City's Madison Square Garden at the climax.

The band's name refers to Death; Death rides a pale horse: It's in the Bible, Book of Revelation, chapter 6, verse 8: "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him."
