Cartoon bands have given us some of the greatest tunes of our childhood. Who could forget Jem’s incredibly addictive theme song? Or The Beets’ brilliant “Killer Tofu?” And don’t even get me started on Mystik Spiral’s catalog of classics. All the while, these animated audiosmiths have given real-life musicians a run for their fashion money. So here and now is a countdown of the most stylish bands to grace your Saturday morning television screen. You’re invited, come along!
1. Jem and the Holograms
Besides being truly truly outrageous, the Holograms are the benchmark against which all cartoon bands are measured — particularly their rivals, The Misfits, led by that slut Pizzazz. Unlike that tacky band of whores, the Holograms were all about “glamour and glitter, fashion and fame” — which is still everything that I aspire to and hold dear in life.
