    That, of course, is not the "classic" lineup.

    Alan Partridge got into a Grundy-style situation with Scottish punk rocker Shona McGough and her band

    Apparently "The Darlings" were actually "The Dillards."

    Played by white comedian Chris Morris in brownface iirc. Beyond hilarious. Would Ali G, a bit of a Chris Morris rip-off, count in this,wasn`t he at least a D.J and voice of yoot?

    A British Spinal Tap,I`m sure they were bottled off the stage at a real rock concert they played. The same team did a tv show called The Glam Metal Detectives about a rock group of that name charged with the mission of "saving the planet's ecology with your top-hit records`.

    One of the Bad News band had a hit as his other fictional character Neil (from a hit show called The Young Ones) covering Traffic`s `Hole In My Shoe` This was actually in the British charts. Should be loads of comedy people dabbling in music, it`s virtually a tradition from the 60s on,having comedians satirise the emerging pop/rock culture.

    Drimble Wedge and the Vegetation. .. Pete Cook and Dudley Moore in 1967`s `Bedazzled`. Just the name cracks me up...and 10 years before punk.

    I used to think `Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers` WAS fictional. And Johnny Thunders himself was a fictional character,played by a member of the New York Dolls.

    The Green Onion, whose namesake was the experimental underwater home in the zany '60s movie Hello Down There (1969). In one scene a young Richard Dreyfus lip-sync croons an oddly Roger Miller-ish ode to goldfish:

    But my personal earworm from the movie is the unforgettable "Glub Love". Even TV's Merv Griffin thought they were "mellow yellow, turned-on and groovy!" That's high praise from a man for whom an "OOOOOOOOOOOHH!" typically sufficed.:laugh:

    A lot of people`s usernames on this site would make good fictional bands...yours for example...Rocket Dog...then there`s Purple Jim,and Rudy Beet...naming ourselves here has a bit of the `fictional rock band/ rock star` vibe.
