We Have Announced our 2016 Finalists for our Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Last week the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced their Finalists for the Class of 2016.



As such our Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is doing the same thing.

The Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was designed to celebrate the bands that not exactly real.  While some have gone on actual tour, the origin behind the musician is fictional.

Last year in the first full class inducted, The Blues Brothers, Spinal Tap and The Monkees were chosen as the result of a year long online poll.  We have now reached the final fifteen finalists for the Class of 2016.


The 15 Finalists are: 

1.  Alvin & The Chipmunks

Say what you want about these anthropomorphic rodents, but they have had multiple hit movies and went number one on Billboard twice.  The Chipmunks were Finalists last year.

2.  The Archies

The Archies had a surprise number one hit with “Sugar Sugar”, which has to be considered a classic in the bubblegum genre.

3.  The Be-Sharps

Comprised of Homer Simpson, Principal Skinner, Barney Gumble and Apu Nahasspeemapetilion, the Be-Sharps won a Grammy Award for the Outstanding Soul, Spoken Word, or Barbershop Album of the Year. 

4. Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem

The house band for the Muppets narrowly missed out on an induction last year as they finished fourth in 2015 Finalist voting.

5. Gorillaz

A very successful virtual band, Gorillaz is the creation of Blur frontman, Damon Albarn.  Arguably, Gorillaz “blurs” the line between real and fictional more than any other Semi-Finalist.

6. Hannah Montana

Hannah Montana was one of the most successful Disney shows of all time and launched Miley Cyrus to the stratosphere.

7. Jerome “Chef” McElroy

Played by the late Isaac Hayes, “Chef” taught the children of South Park right from wrong.

8. Marvin Berry & The Starlighters

Marvin Berry, “the cousin of Chuck Berry” performed with his band, the Starlighters at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance in Back to the Future.

9. Michigan J. Frog

The mascot for Warner Brothers is arguably the least contemporary Semi-Finalist as the frog appears to only know Broadway songs from before 1950.

10. Phoebe Buffay

Phoebe Buffay may have never made it out of Central Perk but “Smelly Cat” lives on in Pop Culture.

11. Sex Bob-omb

Sex Bob-omb was the band helmed by Scott Pilgrim, who had the most literal battle of the bands in cinematic history.

12. The School of Rock

From the film of the same name, this is one of two entries featuring Jack Black.

13. Tenacious D

Tenacious D, the side project of Jack Black and Kyle Gass has released multiple albums and had a fictionalized movie on their backstory, “The Pick of Destiny”.

14. The Wonders

From “That Thing You Do”, The Wonders had one hit (this making them one hit wonders) in the early 1960’s.

15. Wyld Stallyns

If Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is to believed, Wyld Stallyns are the band that brought peace to the world.


In December, the second full class will be announced, as the top two vote getters will enter the Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as the fourth and fifth inductee.

Our Fictitious Rock and Roll HOF Announces the 2016 Class!


After three rounds and a full year of public online voting, the Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced their second full class.

Joining last year’s first class of The Blues Brothers, Spinal Tap and the Monkees are Gorillaz and Tenacious D. 

Like last year, these selections can be considered controversial as both groups certainly blur the line between real and fictional.

Gorillaz were this year’s runaway leader in the votes.  Created by Blue front man, Damon Albarn and comic genius, Jamie Hewlett, Gorillaz is a virtual band complete with four animated members:

2D (lead vocals & keyboard), Murdoc Niccals (bass guitar & vocals), Noodle (guitar, keyboard and backing vocals) and Russel Hobbs (drums).  Each member has a distinct backstory and have actually toured live, sometimes fronted by animation and sometimes by the actual performers behind the group.

Tenacious D were also chosen.  While they comprise comedic actors, Kyle Gass and Jack Black, they did have their own televsion program and had a fictionalized origin story film, “The Pick of Destiny”, thus “qualifying” them for the Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 

These two inductees beat out the following finalists (in order of their vote totals) in the Final Round:


- Sex Bob-Omb (Scott Pilgrim Vs the World)

- The Be-Sharps (The Simpsons)

- Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem (The Muppets)

- Wyld Stallyns (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure)

- Jerome “Chef” McElroy (South Park)

- The School of Rock (School of Rock)

- Phoebe Buffay (Friends)

- Michigan J. Frog (Looney Tunes)

- Marvin Berry and the Starlighters (Back to the Future)

- Alvin and the Chipmunks

- The Wonders (That Thing You Do!)

- The Archies (The Archie Show)

- Hannah Montana (Hannah Montana)


Voting is now open for the Preliminary round for the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class, which can be found here.

Like last year, there will be a Preliminary round leading to 40 Semi-Finalist Candidates, which will pared down to 15 Finalists. 

You know what we want you to do!

Take a look at the next batch of nominees and cast your votes for who should comprise the 2017 Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Wonders "Reunite"

For most people this isn’t news. 

Of course, most people don’t own the Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Last night at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, three of the four actors who portrayed “The Wonders” took to the stage and played their hit in both fiction and reality, “That Thing You Do”.

Present was Tom Everett Scott (Guy), Jonathan Schaech (Jimmy) and Ethan Embry (T.B. Player) and they donned matching white shirts and black ties.  Scott, even put the shades back on for the impromptu reunion!

While most sites view this as a fluff piece, this is anything but to us!

We are a couple of weeks away from announcing our Semi-Finalists for the Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Wonders have reached that level in both of the years of our Hall’s existence.

Does this “reunion” bode well for the Wonders making our Hall?

Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem & Wyld Stallyns enter our Fictitious Rock and Roll HOF

We have been a little late with our official announcement on this but our Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is ready to work on the Class of 2018!

If you haven’t noticed already, Wyld Stallyns and Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem were chosen for the Class of 2017.

If we are to believe fictional rock and roll history, Wyld Stallyns (from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure) created music that brought peace throughout the universe. If that is true, then this is a group that should have been inducted immediately!

Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem were the house band for the Muppets on their eponymously named show and have appeared in all of their later movies and programs since. More notably, they actually appeared last year in a live performance at a music festival in California.

With the induction of these two acts, voting has commenced on our 2018 Class, which you can all vote for here.

As always, we here at Notinhalloffame.com thank you for your continued support.
