ASV Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: New Category:
Touch Me, I'm Dick (Fictional Bands)
Because the voting is oh, so close on the B bands poll, I'm going to let it linger a bit. Get those votes in! [thisisasubliminalmessagetovoteforblacksabbath]. Anyhow, while the tight voting rages on over there, I'm going to open up a new category.
Now pay attention carefully, because this category has fine print attached to it. The new voting is for:
FICTIONAL BANDS (that are not Spinal Tap)
- NO SPINAL TAP. Why? Because they would win, I'm sure. Spinal Tap will get in on its own merits some day. There's going to be about 40 different wings on this hall when it is built (out of legos, construction paper and weebles) and they are assured a place in the future hallowed halls of the ASV Hall of Fame.
- Cartoon bands count, as well as bands from movies, books and television shows. Even bands who appeared in only one episode of a show count.
- Bands that may have ended up "real" but got their start as fictional bands count, i.e, The Monkees, The Archies, Josie and the Pussycats.
- There is an entire compendium of fake bands here, should you need some food for thought. More here.
A few on my own short list: Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, Fingerbang and Citizen Dick. And yes, the Banana Splits!
