11 overlooked fictional bands from The Simpsons

Feb 03, 2015

We all love the Be Sharps, but what about Sadgasm?

Real-life bands like Fall Out Boy and Evergreen Terrace have The Simpsons to thank for their monikers, but the long-running show is also rich with musicality of its own. From The Be Sharps and The Party Posse to “Can I Borrow a Feeling” and the goofy ‘90s dance craze “Do the Bartman,” The Simpsons universe has had plenty of musicality. Outside of the more obvious references, however, the show has also had plenty of obscure fictional projects.

After running for a quarter-century (and, depending on who you ask, jumping the shark on more than one occasion in that time), The Simpsons is a show that continues to expand. While it may be less cromulent than it once was, the show continues to embiggen a spirit of fun.

With that in mind, here are some of the more obscure musical acts from The Simpsons’ universe, as collected over at The Rocklopedia Fakebandica.
