mjones73: These guys would like a word with the author...


Actually I was prepared to be disappointed if they were on the list. The Blues Brothers were very real. Multiple albums and tours.

Even older

Loved the Bugaloos SOOO much back in '71.  Phil Collins came close to winning the I.Q. role - thankfully, that didn't happen.  Courage, on the other hand, was quite hunky.

BTW: I just remembered that Potsie, Ralph Malph, and Richie C's Band That Could Never Be Named had also been forgotten.  That ginger boy sure could blow a mean sax.

I'm saddened no one has mentioned Strong Bad's favorite metal band.

jonnyh: gekirin from the movie "Fish Story", which if you don't know - see it immediately, immensely funny


Show me another band that could accomplish what this one did. Easily the best fictional band. Fail article is a failure.

If you don't limit yourself to TV and movies..  well, there's The Tauren Chieftains, best metal band on Azeroth.  Granted, they have just that one song, 'The Power of the Horde', but it's quite good.

For those mentioning Bad News, sorry but they would be on the list for WORST fictional band.

Before I clicked I thought, "Spinal Tap has to be #1".   After I clicked and saw ST at #2, I accepted their logic that Dr Teeth and Electric Mayhem deserved the #1 slot.

How to write a similar article:

Spinal Tap gets #1

Pick the rest from:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fictional_music_groups

Make an annoying multi page slide show, with video's not titled for the article.

shiat, no Disaster Area? You'd think a band that violates nuclear weapon bans to get their drum solo right would make a list of fictional bands.

Isn't that the Bay City Rollers? I'm pretty sure my big sister had a bunch of their albums on 8-track, including their hits "It's a Game" and "Saturday Night".

Yes, just threw them in for some comedy relief. If I remember correctly they were a manufactured band from across the pond that didn't quite catch on in States, well they were a splash but they didn't last.  That was off top of head, I could be wrong.

I don't care who you are, or what your opinion of that band is, "saturday night" is a great song.

but they were a Boy band during the time they were out. outfitted with an image and the darling of the teenage photo magazines.

but then, so were the jackson five.. and so were the beatles. rolling stones, etc, etc etc.

I think the bay city rollers would have done better in the great legacy of Pop music over all but they came out at a time when costumed, or uniformed Pop bands were falling out of general favor with the populace. So, they got stuck with the Teeny bopper fluff label.

For me, the list is failing without...
