Best real-fake band 2: Crash and the Boys
Crash and the Boys (Scott Pilgrim vs the World): While Scott Pilgrim plays in the middling indie band Sex Bob-omb, there is an infinitely cooler band in the Pilgrim universe, Crash and the Boys. Misanthropic, angry and concise, they are the most brilliant rendering of a narky band I've ever read/seen. With songs such as "I am so sad. I am so very, very sad," "We hate you, please die," and "Last song kills audience," I can't believe that they don't actually exist in the real world and I haven't seen them at some shitty university battle of the bands.
