Fake bands, from the Banana Splits to the Way-Outs

Someone with apparently limitless time and patience has chronicled just about every fake band known to man. The focus is on TV and movies, but the Miscellaneous section includes fake bands from novels. They even include fake bands mentioned by real songs, like "Benny and the Jets" and "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars."

I just sent them a suggestion:

> Would you consider Dukes Of Stratosphere (XTC) a fake band, or do aliases not count?

> In any case, Leppo and the Jooves, from the Soft Boys song of the same name is definitely a fake band.

What's funny is how many fake bands and singers go on to become real bands that actually tour, ie, Spinal Tap, the Monkees, and Alannis Morisette.
