The story we ran on The Pop Rocks video for "Heartbreakers," the Steelers tribute, had people contacting us about trying to book the band, make T-shirts for them and design Web sites.
The Pop Rocks are a true, homemade phenomenon.
In the past week, the Pop Rocks youtube page has gone from 56,000 hits to nearly 500,000 with 1,200 comments, most of them raving about the band, particularly the amazing vocals of 12-year-old Courtney Brown from Slippery Rock.
Now, the song is available for download on their myspace page. Proceeds from the sales will go to Children's Hospital Free Care Fund.
The Pop Rocks are a pre-teen band formed at the Davis School of Guitar Performance in Harmony, Beaver County.
