Rocker Andrew W.K. will speak at a My Little Pony convention in September.

It's hard to imagine rocker Andrew W.K., he of the 2001 hit "Party Hard," as a fan of the soft and sweet cartoon "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," but it's true.

The rocker will host a panel called "In the Flesh: What Would Pinkie Pie Do?" at a My Little Pony convention, Canterlot Gardens, to be held in Ohio in September, Spin reports, and the rocker has confirmed via Twitter.

"My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" has completed two seasons now, has earned positive reviews, and has developed a surprisingly large contingent of adult male fans, known as "bronies."

The description of the rocker's panel on the convention's website reads, "Party party party, she wants to have a party! Pinkie Pie is certainly a party animal, but what happens when you can't be a candy-colored pony in an Equestrian world? We break the fourth wall to present Andrew W.K., the artist behind hits 'She Is Beautiful' and 'Party Hard,' to answer the dire question: What Would Pinkie Pie Do? Join us for a look into how to make your job as fun as your party, and your party as important as your job."

    Hey Lady Gaga, why so long in the face? Maybe it's because of a My Little Pony makeover.

    Finnish artist Mari Kasurinen transforms the iconic '80s toys into famous celebrities and fictional characters — from Marilyn Monroe to Batman. The fun creations sell for up to $250.

    "I was looking for a way to express myself concerning today’s materialism and individualism," she said. "I was very interested in the whole customization phenomenon; how you can get anything done just for you... I tried Barbies, Action Mans, He-Man dolls, tin soldiers, plastic animals... They didn’t fit. Then I remembered that frustratingly pink My Little Pony. It was perfect!"

The rocker himself simplified it with his Twitter post: "I'm doing a PINKIE PIE + PARTYING speech at the My Little Pony convention," he wrote to fans.

Fellow bronies sound excited. Fan site Equestria Daily writes, "We cannot even express how excited we are for his seminar. It will surely rock!"

Joked another on the site, "I don't think Canterlot Gardens knows what they're getting into. My bet: 2 hours. 2 hours before everything gets set on fire."
