OH LORD, NOW IT'S TWITTER MEMES: #FAILEDROCKBANDMOVIES

I was home after Christmas, sick with the horrible cold of doom, when I suddenly got totally obsessed with the #failedrockbandmovies meme, probably because I know tons of obscure bands and movies and I have to share:

  • How To Get A Motörhead In Advertising
  • The Modest Mouse That Roared
  • Danzig In Real Life
  • Run Silent Run Deep Purple
  • Oh What A Lovely GWAR
  • Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex Pistols But Were Afraid To Ask
  • Never Been KISS-ed
  • Where Eagles Of Death Metal Dare
  • Hang 'Em High On Fire
  • A Place To Bury Strangers On A Train
  • A Place To Bury Strangers In The Sun
  • A Fishbone Called Wanda
  • To Wang Chung Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar
  • Kyuss Them For Me
  • The Badfinger And The Beautiful
  • Average White Band Of Outsiders
  • Mars Volta Attacks!
  • Sharon Jones & The Dap-King Of Kings
  • The Replacements : Killers?
  • The Minutemen Who Stare At Goats
  • Our Man Slint


I apologize if other people thought of these before me, there's just too many to go through. Here is what the Village Voice considers "the best"

The secret, I think, is the biggest possible disconnect between the style of the band and the type of movie.
