10 Star Wars Songs to Ease Your Rage Now That Disney's Killed LucasArts

Ever since Disney's acquisition of LucasFilms was announced, the prognosis by fans has been mixed. Three new Star Wars movies is good news, right? Sure, but what about Wednesday's news that Disney has shut down LucasArts?

Yeah, the future of the saga a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away is up for debate, but here's what isn't: Star Wars has had a profound impact on pop culture and pop music. So even if Episode VII goes the way of The Phantom Menace, we can take solace in some nerdtastic music related to Star Wars. In fact, since the Spock/golf shirt/Pantera-loving pop-punk outfit Nerf Herder is making its way to Pub Rock on Friday, April 26, it's a good time to press play on some Star Wars-inspired songs.
