The Music of Lightning Rod: Part 4

Switching pace here, but while I wouldn’t call myself knowledgeable enough of The Beastie Boys to call myself a true fan, I do like a lot of their music, and for some action scenes I would listen to their stuff to give me fuel because I always struggle with action scenes. Part of my process is to visualize the scenes cinematically, which often involves background music, and Lightning Rod was no exception. (Partially the reason I’m doing these entries, actually. 🙂 ) For a major scene later in the book, which I won’t spoil here, for every draft of Lightning Rod I imagined this song playing, partly for the bass line, but mostly for the rhythm of it.

If anything, it’ll give your day a good kick in the ass. 🙂
