The Best Damn Fictional Movie Bands Ever!


There's a lot of bad movies out there made better by music. There are also a lot of indie movies out there made famous by music.

The unsung heroes, however--beyond the Oscar--winning soundtracks and the Garden States of the world--are those great bands made up completely for the benefit of the movie. In other words: Where would we all be without the joy of This Is...Spinal Tap? It would be a grim, un-fantastic movie world, that's for sure.

This list of the best fictional bands ever created for Hollywood is merely a tip of the iceberg. But, we hope, it's still a solid catalog of the very best fictional bands out there in film.

It's also possible that this list is just an excuse to talk about Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.

Anyway, check our list out after the jump.
