    If we can include fiction, Rick Moody's novel The Garden State (no connection to the film of the same name) features a fictional rock band inspired by real band The Feelies. The novel is even set in Haledon, New Jersey, which is The Feelies' hometown. It's been years since I read it, but I remember the fictional band never being named by Moody (I could be wrong).

    George R.R. Martin's novel The Armageddon Rag centers on the legend of The Nazgul, a fictional Zeppelin/Sabbath-esque hard rock band.
