The House of Music is one big, endless concert, from the amateurs in the dingy basement to the lunatics on the roof (which is on fire). It's just as well every wall, floor and ceiling in the House is soundproof, as you may walk from a screaming crowd in one room, to an elegant ballroom dance in the next, and go downstairs to find a cacophonous endless jam session where the greatest musicians in history all have their styles clash horribly.
An entire security force of bouncers, some of whom are said to be trainees from the Defense house, do their best to keep things in line but the Music house is still the best place to find all kinds of mind/-altering substance if you know where to look (in particular, in the backyard it's like Woodstock never stopped).
Naturally, this house gets endless calls for being too noisy, but blame whoever decided to put it across the road from the House of Knowledge. The reason why the House of Craft didn't soundproof its outsides is generally speculated to have something to do with the Council of Shadows.
The gods in this house often like to play a quirky little game, called the Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness. The gods would listen to songs and rate their heaviness/harshness from a 1 to an 11. Suffice to say the gods have also argued and even beaten each other up on how heavy certain songs are.
There are a few songs that obtained notable attention in the House of Music. Queen Elsa's theme, "Let it Go" has been made into a whole album by every god in the House. Emmet's "Everything is Awesome" has become so infectious that it took the House two days to get the song out of their heads. Carl Fredricksen's "Married Life" is to not be played as the sheer sadness of the song has reduced many soft-hearted gods into tears. Mary Poppins' "Feed the Birds" caused an incident that made many of the birds in the Pantheon a bit too plump after the gods heard the song. Finally, "Prisencolinensinainciusol" by Adriano Celentano caused quite the fuss in the House of Music since its re-discovery, partly because of the lyrics, which are supposed to sound like English, but are actually gibberish. That said, the House of Music is determined to make renditions of every theme song in the Pantheon regardless of how people react to it.
For the record, Donald Duck, Daffy Duck, and Patrick Star all have restrictions within this House: the former two are banned from going near pianos because of their past duels that turned violent. The latter is banned outright because of his infamous song that will cause chaos in seconds, and kill entire bands by just playing it.
The Master Composers
- Greater Gods, easily bordering on Overdeities
- Symbol: Drum logo reading "The Beatles" or the Yellow Submarine.
- Portfolio: Pioneering Artistry, Breakaway Pop Hits, Genre Turning Points, The British Invasion, snarking, Silly Love Songs, and too many others to list.
- Domains: Craft, Emotion, Liberation, Trade.
- Followers: JAM Project, Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, etc.
- Allies: Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson (he owns some of their songs), Monty Python (George produced one of their movies), Houkago Tea Time, Jonathan Joestar
- No one is bigger than they are in the domain of Music.
- Similarly, when he's not playing with his band-mates, Ringo Starr has been seen telling stories to some of the child deities, most of the stories being about train engines on the Island of Sodor.
- You can't buy John Lennon love, but he will kick your ass for free if you mess with his loved ones.
- There's a rumor that was lingering in the pantheon that the entire reason why the nickname JoJo was applied to Jonathan Joestar and most of his descendants was because of their song "Get Back", which was focused on a man named Jojo. While Neither The Beatles or Jonathan would elaborate any further, they get along rather well otherwise.
- James Bond is obviously a fan, given one of them wrote "Live and Let Die" and another is married to Agent XXX. However, he prefers to only meet them when screaming crowds aren't present - 007 once said "That's as bad as listening to The Beatles without earmuffs" for a reason!
- Greater God
- Symbol: A bottomless microphone stand
- Portfolio: Heavy Mithril, Crowd Songs, Operatic Stadium Rock, fetish appeal, Porn Stache, Crowd Pleaser, Kindhearted Cat Lover, Too Good To Last
- Domain: Music, Rule of Cool, Zoroastrianism
- Followers: Everybody.
- Allies: Queen, David Bowie, Dudley, Darth Vader.
- Rivals: The Tabloids.
- Pities: Saber Alter
- Was a personification of pure energy and talent in human form, sent from beyond the stars and heavens above to bring truly epic music to the masses.
- King Freddie's voice is regarded as the most beautiful sound in the universe on several alien worlds and at least 3 alternate dimensions.
- Chuck Norris' beard lives in awed reverence of Freddie's moustache.
- Former occupant of the royal throne in the court of the fairies.
- Will be reincarnated in exactly 300 years and become the saviour of humanity. May or may not have already passed on part of his soul into Noel Fielding.
- In the meantime, his torch has also been passed down to one Sol Badguy, a surprisingly devout fan of Queen tasked with saving the world from a currently unspecified "merciless apocalypse" near the end of the 22nd century.
- There have been plenty of sightings of him going to some high school in Japan filled with delinquents. These sightings are often of him riding an abnormally large black horse.
- Also may have performed a private concert with a gorilla on guitar to a rather robotic student...
- Although he has transcended unto the Seven Seas of Rhye, he still sends his love, darling.
- For some odd reason, he's noted that Dudley has a copy of one of his old concert costumes. Dudley explained that he is actually a fan of Freddie's music, and the two got along quite well, having tea in Dudley's rose garden.
- Is furious over Enrico Pucci and Yoshikage Kira having named their deadly Stands after his songs.
- His faith in humanity is officially restored since the eventual ban of Justin Bieber.
- While he tends to be cordial with everyone, people wonder why he is wary of Saber Alter of all people. It turns out that he found Saber Alter was corrupted by none other than Angra Mainyu. This has led to Freddie being very wary of her while feeling sorry for her. When asked, Freddie politely reminds everyone that he is a Zoroastrian and Angra Mainyu is the embodioment of evil in Zoroastrianism, opposite of Ahura Mazda.
- Given he and the rest of Queen worked in Highlander, the immortal beings in the House of Life and Death highly revere him, and all of his Pantheon performances have the MacLeods and The Kurgan in attendance.
- Scaramouche has a grudge on him, given Freddie is the reason why he hears "Will you do the fandango?" once a week in the least.
- Has an odd friendship with Darth Vader. This is likely because in some concerts, he piggybacked on top of Vader for an entrance. This tradition continues in the pantheon.
- Greater Gods
- Symbol: A Treble Clef.
- Portfolio: Classical Music, Standard Snippets.
- Domains: Craft.
- Followers: Schroeder (Particularly follows Beethoven), Falco (particularly follows Mozart).
- Allies: Bill and Ted (for Beethoven), Jack and Annie (for Wolfgang), Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson.
- They are not aliens, or time travellers, incidentally.
- After his adventures with Bill and Ted, Beethoven has also developed a fondness for synthesized keyboards and rock music, but keeps the styles out of the music he personally composes.
- Mozart isn't as fond of modern music, though he has a guilty pleasure for Falco's song "Rock Me Amadeus".
- Jack and Annie visited Wolfgang once, having heard his opera "The Magic Flute". Mozart was completely in awe as he remembered seeing the two when he was just a boy known as Wolfie. Jack and Annie now are frequent visitors to the House to hear him play.
- Mozart is fond of Quasimodo, given both shared a portrayer, and is trying to do compositions featuring more bells.
- Beethoven just facepalmed when he learned that Alex DeLarge joined the Pantheon and reveres him. Stanley Kubrick, who is also not favorable to his own character, has offered his sympathies.
- Beethoven once, to protect the Pantheon, had a rap battle with Justin Bieber when he tried to sneak inside the House of Music. To absolutely no one's surprise, he beat the singer's ass and kicked him out.
- Beethoveen stays far away from the PWF after one time-altering hiccup caused him to become a professional wrestler. It took a recording of his Ninth Symphony to calm him down, but he's still keeping his distance, just in case.
- He is, however, interested in how BROKEN Matt Hardy has used Moonlight Sonata as his entrance theme (played by his wife)...not so much on Matt's other tendencies.
Rise Kujikawa, Goddess of Combat Support, being an Idol Singer herself, frequents this house to rehearse her singing and dancing for her next big concert or even perform with the rest of the Investigation Team as an informal band with bassist Yu Narukami, rhythm guitarist Yosuke Hanamura, drummer Kanji Tatsumi, trumpeter Chie Satonaka, saxophonist Yukiko Amagi, percussionist Teddie, lead guitarist/backup vocalist Mariko "Marie" Kusumi, and keyboardist Naoto Shirogane… when Rise's not being interrupted by I-No.
