15. Jem & the Holograms

The original Hanna Montana, Jem was a TV series made popular in the late 80's by the good people over at Hasbro. She never quite reached the success of other, more awesome Hasbro series such as G.I. Joe and Transformers, but there's probably still a good chance that Michael Bay will ruin her somehow.

14. Dino Spumoni

Leave it to this crooner to make domestic violence sound like a dream. Loosely based on real singers like Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, Dino is portrayed on "Hey Arnold" as a has-been washed up lounge singer who fakes his own death in order to increase record sales.

Honorable mention: Ronnie Matthews - "I Saw Your Face and Wow"

13. Mystik Spiral

Perfectly encapsulating the angst-ridden grunge bands of the late 90's, Daria's Mystik Spiral is a spot on parody of the so-called Generation X. Some of their alternate band names include "Helpful Corn," "Something-Something Explosion," and "Myystik Spiral," with two Y's!

12. Alvin and the Chipmunks

Somehow still relevant despite their first record being released in 1958, Alvin & the Chipmunks have recently resurfaced with a vengeance thanks to the hit children's movie franchise of the same name. And the squeakquels just keep on coming!

11. The Neptunes

Drawing from the popularity of the movie "Jaws," Jabberjaw and his trusty band of teenagers fight crime by day and play music by night. Don't count on ever seeing them live though, as they strictly perform at underwater venues in the year 2076. Did I mention that their drummer is a god damn talking shark?

10. The Beavers

Remember that time that Daggett and Norbert became a disco mega-hit sensation? Of course you do. It's not everyday that you come across a good beaver-themed disco song. Except maybe that time that Earth, Wind & Fire built a dam in the Chicago River.

9. MC Pee Pants

The only giant rapping spider wearing a diaper, turned cow wearing a diaper, turned worm, turned old man, turned vampire in the hip-hop industry, MC Pee Pants will stop at nothing to complete his plan to drill a giant hole to Hell and unleash demons upon the Earth who will in turn help him run a diet pill pyramid scheme.

8. Timmy! and the Lords of the Underworld

Perhaps one of the greatest lyricists of our generation, Timmy from South Park once fronted a heavy metal outfit dubbed Timmy! and the Lords of the Underworld with genius lyrics such as "Timmah!" and "Uh buh buh Timmuh!"

7. The Be Sharps

What could be better than a barbershop quartet composed of Homer Simpson, Barney Gumble, Principal Skinner, and Apu Nahasapeemapetilon? Nothing, that's what.

6. Zorak

After coughing up a talking pink blob named Carmine that has been inexplicably lodged in his throat, Zorak discovers that he actually has really beautiful singing voice. He was also the bandleader of The Original Way Outs on America's #1 space talk show Space Ghost Coast to Coast.

5. Josie and the Pussycats

Long tails AND ears for hats? What's not to like? Plus, when you think about it, Josie is totally the original Keyboard Cat.

4. Powerline

You know you were totally jealous of Max when he got on stage with Powerline at the end of A Goofy Movie. Powerline is everything that Bruno Mars wishes he was but can never be.

3. The Beets

If you grew up in the 90's and watched Doug, then there's absolutely no way that you don't remember this cartoon super group. The Beets are The Beatles of the cartoon universe, which means that whoever is the Michael Jackson of the cartoon universe owns all of their songs.

2. Dethklok

The most metal band in the entire world, Dethklok is so immensely popular that their fans willingly sign their lives away before each of their performances. Also, the fate of the universe depends on the band's every action. So far, they've released three albums and a 74 minute long metal opera. Dethklok can make anything metal, even a Duncan Hills Coffee jingle.

1. Band Geeks

Sweet Victory indeed. Arguably one of the most infamous SpongeBob SquarePants episodes of all time, this Bikini Bottom marching band overcomes all odds and manages to woo the disgustingly human Superbowl crowd during their half-time show even though mayonnaise isn't an instrument.
