fake-band quiz

There’s a pretty excellent trivia podcast out there called Good Job, Brain! I listen to it weekly and generally have a good time. In this week’s episode, there was a quiz about fake bands. I love bands from shows or movies, and count one of them up there pretty high on my list of favorite bands. I enjoyed the quiz so much, I’ve typed it up for all of you to enjoy.

Here we go.

1. The members of this fake band were later in another fake band called The Folksmen.

2. This fake band, from the show Full House, was fronted by John Stamos’ character.

3. Referenced obliquely in the books, this fake band played in one of the films in the mega-hit franchise with a song call “Do the Hippogriff.”

4. The only two members of this fake band who really sang on the albums were Shirley Jones and David Cassidy.

5. The plot of this movie sees the main characters travel to a future in which their band, Wyld Stallyns, are worshipped.

6. The lead singer of this fake band appeared on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” in 2009 to perform the band’s signature song “Friends Forever.”

7. Much like the Beatles, this fake band reunited on a rooftop for one final performance of their hit “Baby on Board.”

8. This fake band was forced to play an even faker band at a film shoot. The fake band they were forced to play was called Cap’n Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters.

9. This fake band was assembled for a 70s tv show, then became a real band.

10. This fake band was fronted by record producer Jerrica Benton.

11. It’s not George Clooney singing in this fake band, but bluegrass singer Dan Tyminski.

Put your answers in the comments. I’ll post them tomorrow. The answers, not your comments.
