Listomania: The Ten Best Bands That Might Actually Be Cults
|Listen: When you all wear the same uniform, people are gonna accuse you of being a cult.|
Meanwhile, other groups like Phish, Minor Threat and KISS who have developed such devoted fan bases they've been said to have cult-like followings.
But then there exists another set of bands -- acts like Akron/Family, who are set to appear tonight at The Loft -- that, intentionally or not, take the concept a bit further, often being accused of being actual cults. And, we have to admit, we can kind of see where folks are coming from.
So on that note, we've come up with a list of the ten best bands that might actually be cults.
(Oh, and also after the jump, we have details on how you can win one of five free pairs of tickets we've got to tonight's Akron/Family show.)
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!)
