You might have seen a meme going around on Facebook about ten bands you've seen live (one of which is a lie). Here at ThinkGeek, we decided to come up with our own spin on it: nine sci-fi and fantasy-themed musical acts that we want to see live but can't because they don't exist:
- Trogdor from Homestar Runner
Okay, so technically he's not a band, but he has his own song, and he travels around the countryside burninating the peasants. We would buy tickets to see that and sing along. "And the Trogdor comes in the NIIIIIGHT!"
- The Mary Janes from Earth-65
Face it, tiger. We wouldn't miss a chance to see our favorite web-slinging drummer gal, Spider-Gwen, in action.
- Dethklok from Metalocalypse
We'd happily risk life and limb to jump in the pit for Hatredcopter! Experiencing Nathan Explosion's transcendental musical stylings in person would be a rare treat indeed. After all, it's not every day the world's greatest cultural force (and seventh largest economy in the world) puts on a show that people might just actually die to see.
- Weird Sisters from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Some of us feel like Ginny Weasley is a kindred spirit, and she was a big fan. Plus, bagpipes and magically-appearing stage. And also, we'd want to wear the concert shirt since it's an excellent reference to Macbeth despite the fact that all the members of the bands are dudes.
- Disaster Area from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
This is the only show in this list where we don't want front row seats. Ideally, we don't even want seats on the planet. We would like the "I Survived a Disaster Area Show" bumper sticker, though. Hotblack Desiato, people. Hotblack Desiato.
- Lúcio from Overwatch
Oh let's break it down! Getting tickets to Lúcio's sold out concert in Numbani is going to be tougher than breaking a good Hanamura defense, but attending would be the concert of the lifetime. Plus, we heard a rumor that Hana Song will be there!.
- Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem from The Muppets
Unquestionably our favorite house band of all time, they're one of those groups from the 70s who have held up amazingly well, especially considering their psychadelic lifestyle. We have to hope they wouldn't be one of those bands who do a half a dozen "final tours." (But we'd probably buy tickets to all of them if they did.)
- Sex Bob-omb from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
The fun part about a Sex Bob-omb concert is that you never know what you're gonna get. Are you just going to get a set of just the hits? Are you going to see Scott Pilgrim kick someones teeth in and use a flashy sword? Who knows, but you'll get some great pictures for your social media either way.
- Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes from Star Wars: A New Hope
Ahh, woodwinds. Doesn't it make your heart sing a bit just to hear the cantina band music? Yep. Us, too. Now imagine experiencing that live in some wretched hive of scum and villainy. Just don't seat us next to Greedo.
- And this one is yours! What band did we leave off that you think should have made the list? Who from sci-fi or fantasy would you be first in line to see if only they existed?
