Ran across this site while surfing yesterday. I seem to recall hearing of it when it was in the planning stages, but this is my first time seeing it up and running. Very cool stuff:

" is a non-profit group devoted to illuminating the intersection of rock and roll and Jewish culture. We've heard a lot about what the Jews have contributed to science, literature, the fine arts--all the high brow stuff. Well, we're going low. Today, we’re a website, filled with original essays, photographs, trivia, lyrics, Q & As, and, if you haven’t noticed it already, a Jewish rock quiz. And this is just the beginning. Soon, we will be bringing live programs to cities across the country. We plan also to design a one-day history lesson in Jews and rock for Hebrew schools. By next year we hope to execute our plan for total global domination. Until then, though, we’re a website. But—as you will soon see—one helluva Jewish website."
