The Top Ten Greatest Fictional Bands Of All Time

What does it mean to be a fictional band? Well, you can't be a band that already exists that just took on another name to be cheeky (So Sgt. Pepper's and Ziggy Stardust, you're out). That said, fictional bands on TV, in movies, and yes, even on record, are all in. So here they are, the top ten greatest fictional bands of all time. Leave your comments below if you disagree with any of my choices. But be warned, you run the risk of being wrong.

10. Team Samurai from the show, Super Human Samurai Syber Squad


(Image taken from: Communities.canada.com)

Okay, besides the fact that they pretty much only played one power chord before they blasted off into their computer screens to fight evil viruses, Team Samurai is the ultimate in electrifying rock. I mean, seriously, just think about it. All it took was ONE POWER CHORD on a guitar (Done deliciously in a windmill like Pete Townshend by Matthew Lawrence) to turn our protagonist into a cyber hero of epic proportions. And hey, the rest of the band wasn't bad, either. I'd love to see what their second act is. Dare I say, ANOTHER POWER CHORD?



9. The Soggy Bottom Boys from the Movie, O Brother, Where Art Thou?


(Image taken from: last.fm)

Selling like hotcakes (Mom and Pop Stores just got a shipment in yesterday and they can't even keep their record on the shelves!), The Soggy Bottom Boys are men of constant sorrow. Still, that doesn't keep them from putting on silly beards and saving their own necks with their stellar Bluegrass music. They actually almost didn't make the list because George Clooney and his gang were dubbed by real musicians for the film. But hey, I just can't deny them. You gotta love that twang.



8. The Hong Kong Cavaliers from the movie, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension


(Image taken from: liveforfilms.com)

Buckaroo Banzai is pretty much the perfect hero. Besides being played by Robocop himself, Peter Weller, he also saves a woman from suicide with his jazzy rock. Because remember, no matter where you go, there you are.



7. The Zack Attack from the show, Saved By The Bell


(image taken from igossip.com)

The Zack Attack are a powerful, powerful group. How powerful? So powerful, that Casey Kasem had to be brought on to talk about their rise to stardom. And don't think that the Zack Attack were relegated to the 90s. Oh, no. They're still going strong. Jimmy Kimmel fans can attest to that.



6. California Dreams from the show, er, California Dreams


(Image taken from: sharetv.org)

Seriously, man, when I'm sleeping, don't wake me up if I'm dreaming. And how would you know if I'm dreaming? Well, you'd know if I was having California dreams! This landmark group had to deal with real teen issues, like drug use, greed, and other topics that totally weren't so groovy, surf dude. But they fought it all with harmonizing. And if you don't understand the sheer power of this, then I seriously question if you even have a soul.



5. The Gumby's from Gumby


(Image taken from: myspace.com)

Pokey on drums, Prickle on bass, Goo on Keyboard, and Gumby on the axe. I don't think I even need to expand on how awesome this concept is, but if you need proof, check out the video below. Man, Gumby can shred!



See sheer awesome at 2:19

4. Sex Bob-Bomb from the Movie and Comic, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World


(Image taken from flickr.com)

Naming themselves after the love child of Tom Jones' perversity and Super Mario Bros., Sex Bob-Bomb are seriously the best part of the decent movie, SPVTW. On the page, you could never hear their magnificent tunes, but on the big screen, well, they can't be stopped. Not even from Jason Schwartzman. The only problem with the band? Well, their first album was better than...their first album.



3. The Wyld Stallyns from the movie, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey


(Image taken from Braingel.com)

While many may say, dude, The Wyld Stallyns were in the first movie, too. My response to that is always no, no, they were not. Or at least, not to the capacity that they were in the second movie. Coming from the future with awesome facial hair, "Ted" Theodore Logan, and Bill S. Preston, Esquire, didn't really bring their Rock and Roll from God (From GOD!) until the second movie. Because God gave rock and roll to ALL of you.



2. The Blues Brothers from the skit and movie, The Blues Brothers


(Image taken from: Sonar.ba)

And speaking of music from God, The Blues Brothers are actually on A mission FROM God. This is all to prevent an orphanage that they grew up in from being closed. Add to the fact that the group have actually gone on to record real albums together, and you have a band that simply cannot be beaten. Even with Belushi's untimely demise.



1. Spinal Tap from the movie, This Is Spinal Tap


(Image taken from: listal.com)

Coming to you live, straight from Hell, is Spinal Tap! Or is it Spinal Pap? No matter, they're awesome whatever their name is. And even though the group went through some pretty troubling times--playing opening act to a puppet show, not being able to find the stage on time, the drubbing of their classic album Shit, er, Shark Sandwich--the group has survived so long because their songs are just too damn good. Sure, I could make some corny reference to their music going up to 11. But I won't (Even though I just did) because I don't have to. The band speaks for themselves. They still sometimes perform live and also have more than one album available for your listening pleasure. And if you really think about it, Spinal Tap went from being in one of the funniest movies of all time to being the greatest fictional band ever almost over night. Or at least, it seems like over night. That movie was a cult picture for awhile.



Other noteworthy fictional bands: Jem, Josie and the Pussycats, Dethklok, The Beets, and N.W.H. (See Fear of A Black Hat to find out what the acronym means)
