“Never Forget” is a series of short articles that aim to free specific film, television, and video game characters from the eternal damnation that is pop-culture limbo.
Rockapella was the house band to the popular kid’s gameshow Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego, which in turn was based off the edu-taining computer game series of the same name. Rockapella would dare to blend modern rock and roll with classic acapella, creating a textured, polyphonic background score to the adolescent Jewish and Indian children answering geographical trivia questions. Besides singing the incessantly catchy theme song, Rockapella served double duty by also acting out many of the various clue serving comedic sketches.
Irony is not lost on the fact that Rockapella have completely vanished from the public eye since completing their five seasons on the show. After years of thorough investigations on the matter, the ACME Chief herself declared their disappearance a “cold case.” As of 2009 there have been several eye witness reports of gangs of homeless vagrants, every so often emerging from their makeshift hovels made out of old World National Geographic Magazines and singing in harmonic unison for spare change. One such vagabond was heard screaming to himself: “Do it, Rockapella!” Before stepping off the subway platform in front of a moving train and joining that great glee club in the sky.
