We here at Notinhalloffame.com are pleased to announce the 15 Finalists based on your online votes for the Fictitious Rock and Roll and Roll Hall of Fame.
Your 15 Finalists are:
Alvin & The Chipmunks (From multiple TV Shows and Movies)
The anthropomorphic chipmunks have been around for decades and actually went to number one on the Billboard charts twice and have been in the top five in voting in both previous rounds.
The Archies (The Archie Show)
Who doesn’t know Sugar Sugar? This put together group went number one with that song, which remains the ultimate bubblegum classic.
The Blues Brothers (The Blues Brothers, Saturday Night Live)
“Joliet” Jake (John Belushi) and Elwood Blues (Dan Aykroyd) took a successful skit into a more successful movie and generated a number one album. They have been in the top three in both previous rounds.
The Commitments (The Commitments)
From the movie of the same name this was a powerful Irish blues band, and a good one at that!
Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem (The Muppet Show)
The house band for the Muppets has been surprisingly high vote getters in the first two rounds. Is it on the strength of their drummer, Animal?
Eddie and the Cruisers (Eddie and the Cruisers & Eddie and the Cruisers 2: Eddie Lives)
Eddie and the Cruisers was an early 60’s Jersey Band who through the death of the lead singer, Eddie Wilson (Michael Pare) become mythical rock and roll icons.
The Monkees (The Monkees)
They were put together by a television network and didn’t play on their first album, but they would emerge in the late 60’s as a bona fide rock group and huge concert draw. Should they be considered Fictitious?
Otis Day & The Knights (Animal House)
How popular were these guys? In real life, the lead singer would go on to form a band called… “Otis Day & The Knights”.
Ricky Ricardo (I Love Lucy)
Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz) may not have been a rock star, but the Cuban bandleader was one of the first musicians on the silver screen. Now if only he let Lucy go to the club!
The School of Rock (School of Rock)
Jack Black and group of tweens rock the house and win the battle of the bands in what has become a constant on cable movie reruns.
Spinal Tap (This is Spinal Tap)
Comprising David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest) and Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer), the faux Heavy Metal group would go out on successful tours for years and the mockumentary, “This is Spinal Tap” remains a cult classic.
Stillwater (Almost Famous)
From Cameron Crowe’s film, “Almost Famous”, we have a rising rock and roll band in the early 1970’s who were primed to be on the cover of Rolling Stone.
Tenacious D (The Pick of Destiny)
Are Jack Black and Kyle Gass supposed to be here? As Tenacious D, the hard rocking duo have sold out many concerts and sold a lot of albums and appeared as fictionalized versions of themselves on screen.
The Wonders (That Thing You Do!)
The Tom Hanks produced film generated a perfect snapshot f early 60’s rock with the one hit wonder, The Wonders who fell from the top as quickly as they got there.
Wyld Stallyns (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure & Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey
How important are these guys? Ted Theodore Logan (Keanu Reeves) and Bill S. Preston, Esq created music that brought peace to planet Earth. What other band can say that?
It is worth noting that just missing the final round was Robin Sparkles (How I Met Your Mother), The Partridge Family and Elvis Presley’s Vince Everett from (Jailhouse Rock).
Those 15 will be on the ballot until October 5 where the first Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class will be named.
