Does anyone remember the band in the Kidd Video cartoons?

Just think of all the TV shows, comics, cartoons, etc. you've ever watched. Odds are there was at least one point where a few characters said, "Let's start a band!"
I can think of five, TOPS, and that's including really obscure references I can think of, like

Thanks for sharing that, gotta love the 80s.  ;D I have a Cobra T-shirt, yessir.

Then you are missing out on some great pop culture.
What can I say? If I have to wrack my brain just to come up with five or six, then it's a game not worth playing. I'm sorry guys, I'm gonna have to sit this LOC out.
Before you give up on it, check out the Wikipedia page on fictional bands. It's thorough to a fault, and is likely to trigger some memories.

Fair enough, will do. Update:... There's just too many that I haven't heard of or I'm just clueless as to how I would rank them from 25 to best. Sorry guys.  :(

 I just scrolled up and down that list and couldn't even get to 10 that I actually remembered, maybe a few more that sort of rang a bell from single episodes of shows.  Guess I just don't watch the right shows to be a part of this.

I've seen some bands I like on that list, but I'll be damned if I can even name one or more song that I like from that band. Question: would a list of only 5 be acceptable?

Well, you sent it to me too.  Are you sure George got it?

Cool.  Still working on my list.  This one is going to take a while.

I really don't think ranking bands by how much you like their"hits" should be the criteria. Most of these bands do not actually play or sing, but lip sync to tracks recorded by studio musicians. Sometimes more than one vocalist or studio band was used for the same character. And as for writing the song, let's put it this way. Remember when Greg Brady kept writing those "hits" for his brothers and sisters to sing? All from different composers, and Barry Williams wrote nothing. God knows how many different writers wrote the partridge families songs.

My criteria was how much I liked the characters who were singing. For example, a certain fake metal band is high on my list, not because I liked any of their music, but because of how funny they were in their movie. If I went by how much I liked their music, then my list would be very different, and a lot   of bands I cut would be in the top ten.

Yeah, I also had a fake band that had TWO movies specifically about them and you never get to hear any of their actual music.

Meh.... it's just too confusing for me to adjust my thinking in that way. I have certain mental blocks that get in the way of altering my thinking patterns.
