It's an eternal question (no one ever thought to ask before), but one of the entries to the First Annual Star Wars Music Video Festival answers it with a heaping dose of "Thunderstruck."

Looking at the other entries in the Star Wars Music Video Festival—which is a real thing, with prizes and everything—most seem to be either soft-focus montages of Anakin and Amidala set to treacly ballads or collections of explosions and lightsabers with pounding drum-and-guitar backing tracks.

But this one, by Swedish YouTube user kalleanka71, shows both inspiration and craft and a distinct lack of footage from the prequels.

If it were our competition, this would win. Then again, we're suckers for Australian guitarists in schoolboy uniforms.
