Aspiring rock stars The Privates have a problem, and it ain’t the usual band drama. It ain’t even Spinal Tap-style, exploding-drummer drama. It’s the fact that the band’s music hits a strange frequency in the precise right way to generate radioactive energy. So, uh, should they still play that house party or what?

Dylan Allen’s short is very funny—it’s really more about the dynamics between the band members than any of the weird science it delves into. And it raises a very important question: why aren’t there more science fiction stories about rock n’ roll bands?
