I'm legitimately surprised there is no Stillwater there.
2013-03-15 05:38:54 PM  

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Possibly applicable.

I knew what that was going to be and clicked it anyway.  I just had to be sure.

List needs Dethklok.

Happy Hours: The Rutles

The Sacred Cows

gah. rutles! how could they forget dirk, stig, barry and nasty!
2013-03-15 05:41:19 PM  
Stillwater should be near the top and I think Almost Famous, the director's cut, is the best of pretend band movies.
2013-03-15 05:41:52 PM  
No Hong Kong Cavaliers?

Any of the bands in "Streets of Fire".

I'd like to nominate Dingoes Ate My Baby for an Honorable Mention.
2013-03-15 05:54:02 PM  
Came for Randy Watson and Sexual Chocolate.

Left disappointed.

I was more into Cap'n Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters.
2013-03-15 06:04:16 PM  
Sex Bob-omb
Eddie and the Cruisers
The Blowholes
Mouse Rat
Sonic Death Monkey/Kathleen Turner Overdrive/Barry Jive and the Uptown Five
2013-03-15 06:04:29 PM  
Josie and the Pussycats made the list but they skipped Shallow Gravy? GTFO.
2013-03-15 06:09:52 PM  
Yeah, so they were basically a British ripoff of Spinal Tap but Bad News deserves at least honorable mention.

If the Monkees aren't on the list then Spinal Tap shouldn't be either.

Hot damn! It's the Soggy Bottom Boys!
2013-03-15 06:12:17 PM  
Monkees, Spinal Tap and Rutles should not be on list.  They played and in many cases wrote their own music.  That's not fictional.

2013-03-15 06:35:55 PM  
No mention of The Lone Rangers?
2013-03-15 06:39:44 PM  
What about The Chan Clan?  Or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids?  Or Pebbles and BammBamm's band?

/don't rock now

I can't believe I forgot about Scum of the Earth, especially since I just saw that episode of WKRP the other day.

full episode here
Sorry, can't find a version without commercials.

Johnny Fever: Are you sure you're Scum?
Scum bandmember: Positive
Carlson: Of course they are
Jennifer: Where is Mr. Peavey? (the promoter)
Scumr: He got out of the car.That's actually the last we saw of him I think.
Fever: Was the car moving when he got out?
Scum: Yes, I believe it was.
Carlson: Why would he do a thing like that?
Scum: We don't know, but that's our story and we're sticking to it
Fever: Yeah, these are the guys

Forgot the Shoyu Weenie thing.  The Neptunes, too.
