1. Aldous Snow and Infant Sorrow
A character so interesting he spun-off from his initial appearance in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and got his own movie. Can you imagine what the follow-up album could be like?
2. The Weird Sisters
It’s essentially a super-group magicked together by the Harry Potter films, featuring members of Radiohead and Pulp (including Phil Selway, Jonny Greenwood, and Jarvis Cocker). Who cares if they are singing about hippogriffs?? Related: hippogriffs are the best.
3. Sex Bob-Omb
We could wait for the vague possibility of a Scott Pilgrim sequel, but we’d rather just get a full album of scratchy, aggressive riffs and angsty, reverberated lyrics RIGHT NOW. Movies take forever.
4. School of Rock
Sure there’s plenty of Jack Black to go around, but Tenacious D just doesn’t have the same emotional veracity as a bunch of kids performing kick-ass music. Just one more sweet Lawrence keyboard solo. Please.
5. No Vacancy
School Of Rock had not one, but TWO kind-of-plausible fake bands. The second was fronted by Adam Pascal, the original Roger from Broadway’s Rent (that explains the pipes). Pascal had a solo career as well, but it never seemed to pack quite the punch of his brief film foray into band territory.
6. Spinal Tap
OK, so they technically already released a second album and it’s been a while, but everyone knows the sophomore slump doesn’t count. Spinal Tap 3 will restore their former glory. We can feel it.
7. The Dan Band
You can see the Dan Band for real, sure, but we want an entire album of inappropriate wedding songs. See below.
8. Figrin D’an and The Modal Nodes
Considering you could listen to hours and hours of this Star Wars alien band play just that one song, can you imagine a whole album of space jazz?
A Chris Rock gangster rap group: need we say more? With all the classic rock resurgence, it’s just about time for a classic RAP resurgence.
10. The Wonders
So what if The Wonders were a fictional one-hit act? Wouldn’t you like to see Guy and Jimmy and Lenny and the other guy (what was the name of the bass player again? KIDDING.) reunite for their more “experimental” years? Just as long as Playtone doesn’t try to sign them to a 360 deal.
