One of the strongest entries on the ballot has to come from the Tom Hanks 1996 film, That Thing You Do. The movie is the story of an early 1960’s one hit wonder, (called the Wonders appropriately) and their rise and fall. It was a very good film that was fun and gave us a catchy song that sounds perfect for the era it represented. We would be surprised if this did not enter the Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a quick fashion.
The Bullet Points:
That Thing You Do (1996)
Tom Everett Scott (Guy “Shades” Patterson, Drums)

Steve Zahn (Leonard “Lenny” Haise, Guitar and Backing Vocals)
Ethan Embry (T.B. Player, Bass and Backing Vocals)
Larry Antonino (Scott “Wolfman” Pell, Guitar)

Why you should vote for them:
They meet every conceivable qualification you should be able to think of.
Why you should not vote for them:
Does being even a fictitious “one hit wonder” work against them?
