our years ago, our lives changed forever when Harambe, a gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo, was shot and killed after a boy fell into his enclosure. His death cemented the ape as both a tragic representation of the dark side of the zoo system and a persistent, dank meme. Throwback Thursday, a local pop-punk cover band, will recount the tale with a 30-minute rock opera in memory of the gorilla, featuring songs from blink-182, All Time Low and Hawthorne Heights. All we can say is: RIP Harambe, your name will never be forgotten as long as there are likes to be mined from the internet.
