Who's your favourite fictional band?

The Bacche from Chris Brookmyre's A Big Boy Did It And Ran Away

I love the daft arguments and petty fights. It's very well observed 😁

Beige, maaaaan... 😎

 

"Beige's guitar, lute and harpoon player, Geoff Djeff: "I'd been struggling for hours to come up with a fresh concept. In a flash of inspiration I got the idea of combining a cosmic apocalypse with my favourite TV programme, 'The Black & White Minstrel Show.' I knew right away I'd got something really classy..."  "

Me, just me. Earning millions just walking on stage being me. Oh and a massively successful rock-band with me too.  So not just me.

Anybody else remember this? We also had the sequel - "Birdy and the Group". Had forgotten all about them until this thread.

For me it absolutely has to be Stillwater from the film Almost Famous. It captures so many elements of rock n roll perfectly, from the dedication of obsessive teenage fanboys, debauchery on the road, and of course, the inevitable clashing of the singer and lead guitarist's ego's.

Sex Bob-Omb and The Clash at Demonhead from Scott Pilgrim vs the World are very listenable.

But Gwar are a real band, and have been going for years.

One of the best gigs I ever went to was a Gwar show, awesome!
