Not in Hall of Fame

One of our pet projects, the Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is pleased to announce the Finalists for the Class of 2021, which will be the 7th full class. 

The Semi-Finalists were decided by all of you, after being pared down from other 500 Preliminary Nominees.

Whoever gets inducted this year, will join previous inductees:

The Fictitious Rock and Roll Semi-Finalists are: Spinal Tap, The Monkees, The Blues Brothers, Gorillaz, Tenacious D, Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, Wyld Stallyns, Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Wonders, Bleeding Gums Murphy, Otis Day and the Nights, Stillwater, Josie and the Pussycats, Marvin Berry and the Starlighters and the Rutles.

To mix things up, just like or Fictitious Athlete Hall of Fame, we have created a contributor’s section.  

This year’s Fictitious Rock and Roll Finalists are:

 

Alice Bowie (Cheech and Chong):  From the minds of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong first appeared in the comedy duo’s first film.  They are a Finalist for the second time.

Bart Simpson (The Simpsons):  Leading a boy band, and also performing on his own when he was part of the Krusty the Clown show, we have heard Bart sing for decades.  Amazingly, he is still ten, and for the first time is a Finalist

Buckaroo Banzai and the Hong Kong Cavaliers (The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension):  What couldn’t these renaissance men do?   This is their second time as Finalists.

Eddie and the Cruisers (Eddie and the Cruisers):  A previous multi-time Finalist, Eddie and the Cruisers were on the cusp of something great, until the lead singer grew frustrated when management rejected his new sound…so he faked his death.  They are Finalists for the third time.

Figrin D’An and the Modal Nodes (Star Wars):  The house band at the Mos Eisley Cantina was a finalist the last two years.  No band can bounce back after seeing a fatality better than this one.  They are Finalists for the second straight year.

Fingerbang (South Park):  We can argue that this is the most successful boy band of all time…from South Park, Colorado.  It was not until they were joined by 30-something Randy Marsh that they really made it “big”…meaning that they played the mall.  This is their first time as a Finalist.

Hannah Montana (Hannah Montana):  Monatna returns to the Semi-Finals, and she was one of the biggest stars in the world, yet lived a double-life as a regular teenager.  Hannah is a Finalist for the third time.

 

Jem and the Holograms (Jem and the Holograms):  They played pop music and had a huge hologram machine. Enough said.  This is their fourth time reaching the Finals.

Michigan J. Frog (Looney Toons):  This frog would perform classic showtunes, as long as there was no audience.  He has been a Finalist three times before.

Ricky Ricardo (I Love Lucy):  He never le Lucy make it to the club but he was a superstar Cuban bandleader.  Ricardo is also a three-time Finalist.

Schroeder (Peanuts):  The piano-playing devotee of classic music has been a Semi-Finalist three times before.

The Archies (The Archies):  In 1970, they had a number 1 hit in the “Real World” with “Sugar Sugar”.  They have been Finalists three times before.

The Be Sharps (The Simpsons):  Former Grammy winners, the Be-Sharps were on top of the world for a brief period of time.  Comprised of Homer, Barney, Apu and Principal Skinner, they are four-time Finalists.

The Partridge Family (The Partridge Family):  The Southern California family of musicians (except the young kids, who couldn’t do anything) played gigs all over the state in the early 70s and got there on the most amazingly painted bus.  They have been Semi-Finalists twice before.

The School of Rock (The School of Rock):  Dewey Finn pretended to be a substitute teacher and used his class as a band to perform at the Battle of the Bands.  How did he not get in more trouble?  This is their third time as a Finalist.

You can vote for them here.

This year’s Fictitious Rock and Roll Semi-Finalists Contributors are:

Alexandra Cabot (Josie & The Pussycats):  Alexandra didn’t help Josie & The Pussycats, the band her brother Alexander managed.  In fact, she sought to sabotage them anyway she could, though it rarely worked.

Bruce Dickinson (Saturday Night Live):  Dickinson needed more cowbell.  He had a fever for it.  He got it, and the Blue Oyster Cult were forever grateful.

Burton Mercer (The Blues Brothers):  He was the cop who wanted to hear the Blues Brothers perform at the Palace Ballroom.  Perhaps, this wasn’t the best performance of his duties.

Colonel Homer Simpson (The Simpsons):  Homer is nominated in both categories, here for his discovery and early management of country singer, Lurleen Lumpkin.

Curtis (The Blues Brothers):  Had it not been for the mentorship of Curtis, the Blues Brothers would not have become the iconic band that they were.

Dr. Johnny Fever (WKRP in Cincinnati):  John Caravella’s career was resurrected when Andy Travis came in and changed the format to rock and roll.  He renamed himself, Dr. Johnny Fever, and he would eventually become the top morning man in the city.

Ramona Flowers (Scott Pilgrim Vs the World):  Why was Scott Pilgrim fighting the world?  For the love of Ramona Flowers of course!

Rufus (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure):  From the future, Rufus provides Bill S. Preston and Ted “Theodore” Logan a time travelling device so that they can learn history and pass their class.  This allowed them to stay together so that they could unite the world with their music.

Wayne Campbell & Garth Algar (Saturday Night Live, Wayne’s World and Wayne’s World 2):  The hosts of Wayne’s World on Aurora Public Access, Wayne and Garth loved rock, promoted their own concert, and became icons in their own right.
