Top 10 Fictional Bands Not Named Spinal Tap

Fictional Bands

Just because a band is a parody, doesn’t make them bad. This week, Mark and Nate discuss their favorite fictional bands NOT named Spın̈al Tap, who is the clear-cut number one in this genre.

In this episode, Mark and Nate enlighten listeners about these fictional bands. Everything is discussed including the band’s history, popular songs they performed, and where in pop culture they originated. They also predict how the band’s career would have turned out.

Spoiler alert: Most don’t make it to the big leagues, but rather, play the upper-Midwest casino circuit.

Proceed this episode with caution, as there is a heavy amount of nostalgia throughout the show. These bands appear in everything from heartwarming comedies to 90s Nickelodeon cartoons.

Sit back, relax, and take a trip down memory lane with us. While you’re at it, let us know which fake bands we left off the list. It was difficult narrowing down the field, so your favorite fake band may not have made the cut.
