Fake Bands / TV And Movies

Post by sfpcc » Sat Jun 08, 2019 6:24 pm

Can anyone think of any made up / fake bands that only existed in TV or Movies. This doesn't include groups like The Monkees or Spinal Tap which were made up for media but more or less morphed into real bands. I guess you could count things like The Archies or Josie And The Pussycats, (they weren't real bands but made records.) What I'm thinking about is a group that is just a silly, humorous named on a script. Such as:


Big Mountain Fudgecake /King Of The Hill

Funeral Goose / Life In Pieces

The Sacred Cows / Get Smart
