Snookette, was the name I thought about that would work well;

A reality show with Snookette and the Jersey Babies getting into trouble with loaded diapers and bottles of baby booze would work well.
"Stupid and Pregnant" will premiere on MTV real soon!

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah [this band's name is guaranteed to get the crowd going]
Bullet For My Valentine [this band's name will likely bring the crowd down]

@ Peter C. Travis; Sounds like it might fit here.

"Baby Jason and the Spankers" did an album called "Rattle", and then they vanished.

A band called: "Blue Turtle Seducution" used to play in the high mountains of California. I wonder what happened to these guys as they were good....

There was an album that was a tie-in to the Groovey Ghoulies cartoon show, featuring some of the music featured in the cartoon.

Just listening to "The Power of Beef" by Pigmy Love Circus and chuckling to myself thinking this would be a good post for this thread.

Here's a few I recently came across:
Lavay Smith and Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers
Lee Presson and the Nails [great name for a band, I think]
The Legendary 4-Nikators

I used to live in a place called Lickskillet. It was either the town or the county...

The Group with No Name
It was a '60s pop-rock outfit that played the opening night of the Monterey International Pop Festival in 1967.

No, Lickskillet Alabama.

@ John C. Harrison
I was there, but I missed the first day, so I didn't see that group.

Dr. West's Medicine Show and Jug Band, or something to that effect...they did the Dr. Demento classic, "The Eggplant That Ate Chicago". Norman Greenbaum was a member of this group.

I remember a local band at a "Battle Of The Bands" in the 70's called "The Rubber Band". Whatever happened to The Battle Of The Bands?

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 10, 2012 12:51:16 PM PST
Wait! Are you saying you attended the Monterey Pop Festival!?! I am a big Monterey fan/collector. My ultimate goal would be to own all the performance on video and CD. As far as CD goes, I have the complete performances of Jefferson Airplane, Otis Redding, Ravi Shankar, the Who and Jimi Hendrix. I've always said, if I could go back in time, I'd love to attend the festival. I would love to hear/read any stories you might have abut your experiences. Thanks Michael.

Michael Ary says:
Zz it's sad but nearly true that there are no more Battle Of The Bands, because there are so few bands that actually play instruments anymore... they use synthesizers or do "sampling" of previously done material. And even if they do play something they don't actually do original riffs as back in the day, they play computer generated music with tremelo, plinking, whamy bar, foot pedals, etc. Enough is enough, where has all the musical talent gone?
