By Grabthar's Hammer once again celebrate Rickman's hilarious turn as Alexander Dane in Galaxy Quest. The crew also somehow stumbles upon an analogy between Rickman's resurgence as a fan-favorite for a new generation as Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series and the band Green Day's equally interesting career trajectory. Hans Gruber is to Dookie as Severus Snape is to American Idiot. A bit of a stretch? You betcha.
By Grabthar's Hammer, you shall be remembered, Alan Rickman.
