As in from a TV show or film
my votes are for daria's 'Mystik Spiral' or dethklok
They had an album out.
DETHKLOK for the win tho
are not real, it's all (or mostly) brendan small. the smurfs have had albums out, are they real?
I'd regard them as similar to Gorillaz....
touring as making them a band, but i'm not dismissing what your saying as incorrect, just my opinion.
in homestar runner limozeen are a fictional band who also tour, but i would never consider them to be a real band as the band members are fictional. When played live it's just the music not the band. Gorillaz can come closer to the whole idea of it all though when they performed with holograms. For me it's just a group of people playing music by a fictional band (which they also wrote for the fictional band ;D )
i'm voting them.
Metalocalypse from the start....
Real People make the music.
Real People tour.
HOW is that different from Gorillaz?
for the benefit of the tv show and for the fictional characters to play. Gorillaz make music for albums and to occasionally play live like a normal band.
Wikipedia lists them both as a fictional and a real band.
So lets agree to disagree.
Can't be beaten
Plus there are some songs on the actual album not featured in the show.
and as good as Metalocalypse is (and it is great) it isn't as good as South Park.
Which is now as good as The Simpsons at its peak.
but i am very very very impressed
Who can forget the classic Tragical History Tour LP?
worst band yet
You don't know what you're missing out on. How about their classic 1965 single "Ouch!"?
Under the whole Dethklok farrago I'm not sure we can count the Rutles as they've played gigs and all that.
and the rutles
i've been PLLOOOUUGGGHHHIINNN
pickin cotton all day long
and Bad News
legalise murder > spinal tap ;D
:D (despite them appearing in a shit film)
If not, do The Debbie McGees count? :D
If not, i can only think of The Beets from forgotten early nineties cartoon Doug at the moment.
"Aaah eeeh ooooh, killer tofu".
my brother loved the beets, he used to sing that song ALL THE TIME!
he printed out a t-shirt on some transfer paper but i don't think he ever made it. shame
but i am posting what i found regardless
The Beets : A rock band, comprised of Monroe Yoder; Wendy Nespott; Chap Lippman; and Flounder, clearly based on both The Beatles (in name and somewhat Scouse accents) and The Ramones (in appearance and sound), that Doug and Skeeter are big fans of, later breaks up, and go solo in the Disney version. The band's last album was titled "Let It Beet", with an album cover parodying both the Beatles' Let It Be and The Rolling Stones' Let It Bleed. Songs The Beets produced include: "Killer Tofu", "I Need Mo' Allowance", "Where's My Sock?", and "You Gotta Shout Your Lungs Out". Numerous episodes involve Doug and Skeeter pursuing tickets to the band's concerts, or the band members themselves. The band's original name was "The Pickled Beets", a possible reference to the Beatles originally being known as "The Silver Beetles". Their first #1 single was "I Sneezed On My Face". The band has developed a cult following with original viewers of the show. The band's popularity reached an all-time high with "Beet Mania" (clearly a reference to Beatlemania). In addition, Doug once won tickets to a Beets concert through a radio contest, after absent-mindedly naming (correctly) one of the Beets' albums, "Beets Me".
"It's a shit business! Glad I'm out of it."
I'll have to go with the lovely Josie And The Pussycats as they rock the house but can also tug at the heart strings with top ballad "You don't see me".
Or Fur Q.
or Brasseye? I was going to post that!
..he's an uzi lover"
Are they any good?
Sonic Death Monkey
Reece & Gilly's favourite band
that no-one has yet mentioned Stillwater from ALmost Famous. Cameron Crowe did actually name them after a real band of the time but they were essentially a hybrid of The Eagles and Skynyrd.
Best. Film. Ever.
A genuinely decent fictinoal band.
Espcially as Peter Frampton wrote their songs.
with the hit singles "Touch Me I'm Dick"?
racist folk band on Phoenix nights called?
# Send the bugger's back! #
not seen singles in years.
The Carrie Nations (from Beyond the Valley Of The Dolls with kinda grooving soul pop)
Kipper (Glam rockers from Confessions Of A Pop Performer who do a song about violence called 'Do The Clapham')
Steven Shorter (from Privilege - which is Paul Jones being used by the government to control teenagers with pop and religion!)
Mumblin Jim (i THINK that's what they're called....Jack Nicholson in a psych-rock band in 60s groovy movie Psych Out!)
Pinky And Perky
Tingha And Tucker
The Dilly Sisters (from Banana Splits)
i better go t work now...
...COMING UP FOR BLAIR!
It's obviously The Cantina Band from Star Wars.
from Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia
the name of the band that Lister did vocals for in Red Dwarf who wrote The Om Song?
and the banana splits!
i scrolled all the way down the thread to see if anyone had mentioned them. they clearly win
not really, it's CRUCIAL TAUNT, but jolly green giants are the only band from wayne's world not yet posted.
other fictional bands of note are:
driveshaft (from lost)
the abject negatives (from nothing nice to say)
the worst is the dad's band from gossip girl. very disappointing.
or The Oneders, later to become the Wonders in That Thing You Do, Film - terrible, Liv Tyler - Lurrvely.
from Pynchons 'The Crying of Lot 49'.
From wikipedia -
The Paranoids all speak with American accents but sing in English ones; at one point, a guitar player is forced to relinquish control of a car to his girlfriend because he cannot see through his hair.
Say no more...mon amour.
They were really...really...really...Cooooool!
I can't remember what they were called...might actually be Pugwall.
