So, yesterday I saw this list of the “top 10 awesome fake bands.” After looking through it, I realized it missed a bunch and had some pretty lame bands, so I asked some people on the pop punk message board, and came up with much better answers. If you come up with anything that I haven’t put here, let me know and I’ll add to the list. So, here, in no particular order, is a better list (with youtube videos) of better fake bands. Edit: I can’t believe I forgot Indomitable Spirit.
