From “Freaks and Geeks” to “Lost” to “The Simpsons”, many series have featured fictional bands. We push the decibels!
IN FREAKS AND GEEKS
In the cult series Freaks and Geeks, created by Paul Feig, a rock band brings together, please, the actors James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jason Segel, the latter showing himself particularly impressive on the drums!
IN THE FÊTE AT HOME
The sitcom Home Party allows you to savor the lovely bit of voice of actor John Stamos (Uncle Jesse), who is the singer and guitarist of the band Jesse and the Rippers. A formation that appears (and hears) in several episodes of the show.
In the Chuck series, it’s hard not to be amused by the musical performances of the duo Jeffster. The formation, whose name is the contraction of that of its members (Jeff Barnes and Lester Patel), specializes in covers.
In the cult series Lost, the character of Charlie, played by Dominic Monaghan, is the guitarist and bassist of a group by the name of Drive Shaft. A formation that even shot a very childish clip, as you can see below!
IN THE OFFICE
The character of Kevin Malone, in the American version of The Office, is part of a group. The latter’s name? Scrantonicity. His particuliarity ? He specializes in covers of The Police!
IN SOUTH PARK
There’s a heavy metal band in South Park! Called Timmy and the Lords of the Underworld, it features the character of Timmy Burch. Note that Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creators of the series, are an integral part of the group, the first singing and playing bass while the second lends his voice to Timmy. Finally, note that the song was a great success by being integrated into the Rock Band video game.
IN JEM AND HOLOGRAMS
The animated series Jem and the Holograms is the story of a rivalry set against a backdrop of decibels: that between the Jem and the Holograms group and that of the Misfits.
IN SAVINGES BY THE GONG
When the whole Saved by Gong troop creates a group, the result is kitsch to say the least, but the sympathy is enormous. The name of the training in which Zack, Kelly and Co. are illustrated? Zack Attack!
IN DEGRASSI: NEW GENOTERATION
Downtown Sasquatch is featured in the Canadian series Degrassi: New Generation. If the program has staged a number of fictitious groups, that of Downtown Sasquatch has the particularity of having as guitarist the rapper Drake, who played the character of Jimmy Brooks on the small screen.
IN THE SIMPSONS
Bart is part of a group in an episode of The Simpsons! And more precisely of a boy band, in episode 14 of season 12 baptized Bart and his boy band. At his side in this not really talented formation, we find Milhouse, Nelson and Ralph.
