Five Songs for Charlie Sheen's Violent Torpedo of Truth Tour
The first two dates of Charlie Sheen's Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option Show sold out in 18 hours over the weekend, and now there could be 20 to 30 "performances" in the offing. Obviously, this guy is an entertainer, and his recent Funny or Die sketch shows that he's got some culinary flair, and a new TLC documentary should further stoke the public's fascination with the unpredictable and well-endowed ex-Two and a Half Men actor.
But what the heck is going to happen on these dates? If it's just going to be a live version of the unscripted Sheen's Korner shows, I'd rather hang with the trolls than drop $69.50. More details are expected via Sheen's Twitter soon. If this turns out to be a musical revue featuring hits from Sheen's film career, though -- giddyup! Here's a collection of melodies perfect for riling up a crowd of winners.
X's cover of "Wild Thing" from Major League (even more hilarious in Italian):
The Talking Heads' "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)" from Wall Street:
Smokey Robinson's "Tracks of My Tears" from Platoon:
Bon Jovi's cover of "The Boys Are Back in Town" from Navy Seals:
Finally (and somewhat regrettably) Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart, and Sting's "All for Love" from The Three Musketeers:
This one probably won't happen, though:
