I think that back when Rorschach was Kovacs, he'd have a little time for music . . . but I'd imagine he'd strictly stick to Classical, not really enjoying the newer developments in music. I'd imagine Kovacs being a Bach, Mahler, Brahms, and Beethoven fan... music that is extremely forceful.

But Rorschach wouldn't have time for music. :(


Classical? Nah. That makes ol' Walter "Doomsday" Kovacs sound like Hannibal Lecter. Seems to me (this is before the Roche case, mind you) he might have gone for Sinatra. Maybe even Bing Crosby. I'd go out on a limb and say maybe he even liked a little opera now and then. He'd have to sneak into the theater mind you. Maybe bum a suit off Dan.



I dunno, I bet he would have been exposed to the classics at the Charlton home. Something like Vivaldi, or Bach. Nice classical religious-themed music aimed at "fostering good, decent values in troubled kids."

We all know what Dan likes, but if he and Laurie survived into the 1990s and he started listening to newer music, and Massive Attack existed in the storyline of that "alternate universe," I could see him getting into early nineties-era (i.e. "Protection") Massive Attack.

I'd probably imagine he'd be more of a "Blue Lines" fan. :)

Specifically Unfinished Sympathy, one of my favorite songs:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEeS5wkmPiA

Manhattan would create his own music. It'd be like a choir of atoms and gluinos.

Comedian would definitely listen to The Rolling Stones.

Laurie: anything that's hip at the time. Madonna, etc.

Dan. The Smiths, Elliott Smith (if he were around)

Ozy - already know he liked Dub, but honestly I cannot see him listening to that. I definitely think that's a front. I can see him listening to Tiesto (again, if he were around)

Rorschach. none. no way.

Capt. Metropolis - Journey.

Rorschach listens to Rush from 9-12 and then Hannity from 12-3. God bless the golden EIB microphone! Rorschach is a great American!

I think they'd be a bit too "moderate" for him.

Michael Savage rocks, I just dont listen too him often because I only listen to the radio when Im driving. So Im somewhat of a Rushbaby because Hannity can get a bit repetitive on his topics. I dont get Mark Levin on my local radio dial up here, wish I did, hes always on Hannity.

My dad listens to Levin all the time, and sometimes I'll listen in (I don't really listen to the radio a lot)

Also my dad listens to Hannity and occasionally Rush (but depends on his work scehdule)

I wouldn't place myself in any political party, but I tend to lean to the right side of the argument. (So, I lean to the conservative side) ha ha ha

I think Comedian would listen to American Rock, like Guns N' Roses.

Dr. Manhattan I don't think would care for music, as he does not care for the world without Laurie, so I think if he did isten to music he would listen to what Laurie listens to.

Dr. M: Laurie? I am unware of the point of this song, of course these 'DEVO' are men.

well according to The Daid Hayter Script of Watchmen (I think), the night that Eddie Blake died, he was listening to Mack the Knife by Louis Armstrong, so I alway peg The Comedian a swing/big band kind of guy, just some other poster eariler already said.

I kinda saw the Comedian as a hard rock type of guy. You know KISS, AC/DC, stuff like that. That type of guy whod have Highway to Hell blasting in his walkman as he torched a villiage ran by terrorists.

Big Band when it was out, but as the hard stuff came I can easily see Blake walking into a village with back in black blaring, then shooting people

Moloch, decidedly, would listen to pure, unfettered techno. I don't know why, but the image of him at a rave is extremely amusing.

Nah, I think he would enjoy classical and electronic music.

It is, after all, organized vibrations of matter. He might not "enjoy it" like us, but I think he'd respect the crystalline structure of Bach's canons, for example.
