I love music, so when I am watching a movie or a show on television and a fake band takes the stage I am at full attention. If there’s one thing we like better than a good band, it’s a really funny fake band. From metal to rap to folk, we’ve seen them all. After finishing this list I understand there were a ton of awesome bands I left out, so I might have to drop a part 2.
10. Wyld Stallyns – Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
If we were to stage a battle of the fake bands, Wyld Stallyns would surely emerge most triumphant! What other fake band can claim to have traveled through history and time, hanging with the likes of Socrates, Joan of Arc and Sigmund Freud? They also managed to snag a few historially signifigant babes through their journeys. What Wyld Stallyns lacked in musical talent they surely made up for in “excellence.”
9. Crucifictorious – Friday Night Lights
One town. One man. With one dream – to take these three words – “Christian speed metal” and form the most fearsome yet Christ-like rock outfit Dillon, Texas has ever seen. With the creation of Crucifictorious, Landry Clarke, once seen as a brainiac outcast and wedgie bait evolved into a heavy metal maestro with a godly axe to grind. The addition of super-cute bassist and lesbian, Devin, upped the talent factor while adding an interesting layer of complexity to Crucifictorious’ christian identity. Luckily, we have at least two more seasons of FNL to follow the band’s progess. Hopefully, future gigs will draw a bigger audience than one Tim Riggins.
