"uhhh ya, im in a baaand, severe tire damage....."

My friends and i have some semblance of musical ability, so we have always tossed around the idea of starting a band. nothing serious, strictly for fun only.  The ideas we come up with revolve around a specific theme, and doing cover songs. I think i will list them....

1. Chixie Dicks - The name comes from a Zack Galifinakis stand-up where he says he "wants to make an all male country pop trio". The idea is to cover song's done by female artists, or at least groups with female vocalists. The punchline is the band is all guys! har har har......

2. No name for this one, just a harry potter themed band and an excuse for me to dress as a death eater.  Still no original songs, just modified covers to find the theme. My magnum opus for this one is a cover of Slayer's Raining Blood, re-worked to "raining mudblood" (from a sectumsempra skyyyyy!!!!). Is this my coming out as a huge dork?

3. Still no name, and still no original material. This band also would play re-worked songs, except with a Pokemon theme.(yes, i do like pokemon).  The song i am currently working on is called "Like a pid-gey6", a cover of the far east movement's Like a G6. the idea for the song is due to the comic i have posted below.


Bonus points for anyone who knows which movie the post title came from!

  1. ok I don't know from where the title came from but I think these are great ideas and if you actually do it I'd love to hear it......I actually think that the whole dressing up as a death eater and playing HP themes'd be cool enough(and by cool I mean dorky....which'd be cool)

  7. These are some really cool ideas. I was in a band where we did half covers and half originals. The called the other band our alter ego and they would preform the first half of the show and then our real band would come on in the second half of our show to do originals. We had alot of fun with it
