The Stoopidist Band Mashup Ever

The 1996 book "Rolling Stone's Alt-Rockarama" book of lists and trivia contained a list entitled "100+ Alt-Rock Super groups we hope never happen". This was a list of band name mashups used to creat new stupid band names for ill advised supergroup pairings. Notable examples incuded;

Agnostic Front Line Assembly

Average White Band of Susans

Echo and the Bunnymen Without Hats

Greatful Dead Kennedys
