How about 'Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band'?

Oh wait! That's a REAL name!

calufrax: Snapper Carr: Yeah, so they were basically a British ripoff of Spinal Tap but Bad News deserves at least honorable mention.

[www.principiadialectica.co.uk image 660x496]
Except Spinal Tap was in 1984, and Bad News in 1983...


Spinal Tap was a real fake band in 1979 though. Loudon Wainwright III was their original keyboard player.

Dear everybody in the thread,

Deathklok goes on tour and plays. Per the rules established in this very forum they are out of contention.

Thank you

Nice. You're either a Canadian in their 30's or I know Kevin Smith's Fark handle. :D

While we're mentioning Spinal Tap, what about The Folksmen? They're the same guys for Jebus sake.

I did not know that. +1 to you and Mr. QT. It's a good film.

CarnySaur: Kind of off-topic, but I loved the running joke in Role Models about the nonexistent Wings song "Love Take Me Down (to the Streets)"


My wife and I used that as our cake-cutting song at our wedding. Three people got it.

Getting really obscure here, I have done a cover of "It Couldn't Be Ann" by Circus Monkey, a fictitious band from the movie Bandwagon.

That box cover makes it look like QT had something to do with making the film, it's misleading.
