I'm feelign especially random Today. So here's the top 10 fictional bands. Why the fuck not? (Note: for the sake of fairness, the results were decided based on an enctirely scientific formula involving a monkey, a dartboard and a bottle of Jack Daniels)
10. Foxxy Five
A parody of Josie and the Pussycats, Foxxy Love tried to reunite the band with booze and spontaneous lesbian orgies, only to kill them all by running them over, then cashed in on the tragedy. They never actually made any music, but Foxxy did make this loving ode to a certain part of the va-jay-jay.
9. Flight of the Conchords
Their official title is "Formerly New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo". That title is made of win.
8. Barry Jive and the Uptown Five
The band from the great book and the subsequent great movie, this one of the reasons why I continue stand by Jack Black, even though he feels the need to shovel loads of shit down my throat.
7. The Jerk-Offs
A queercore band with Michael Cera on guitar? Yes please. Sure, they don't actually have a drummer, but who cares?
6. Finger Bang
There are no words to explain how hilarious this band is. Cartman's blatant attempt to make money off the boyband craze results in a boyband with an unintentionally sexual name, a dead Kenny, and the best sendup of crappy, overproduced pop ever made.
5. The Commitments
A Soul Band hailing from Ireland, it was fronted by Glen Hansard, singer of Irish Rock Band The Frames, and who would later go on to win an Oscar for 2007's Once. He should really consider becoming a fulltime movie singer, huh?
4. The Blues Brothers
Let's try to remember a time when Jim Belushi didn't make According to Jim, Dan Aykroyd didn't fade into obscurity, and SNL could be funny without Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Good times...
3. Spinal Tap
Oh Spinal Tap...I defy you to name a more influential mockumentary. The weird thing is, before I saw the movie, I thought they were a real band. I'm smart.
2. Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem
THEY ARE A ROCK BAND. A ROCK BAND OF MUPPETS. AND ANIMAL IS THE DRUMMER. WHAT PART OF THAT DO YOU NOT FIND TO BE BRICK-SHITTINGLY AWESOME?
1. Dr. Fünke's 100% Natural Good Time Family Band Solution
If you don't know about this band, congratulations! You're dead to me. A folk-band created by the wonderfully unself-aware Tobias, the entire act was a shill for The Natural Life Food Company. If the idea of David Cross, Amy Poehler and Michael Cera singing folk songs about health food doesn't give you a screaming orgasm, you obviously don't have a pulse. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a video on youtube of the performance. Take my word for it here.
