Fictional bands and artists have been a staple of movies and television shows for decades, from the heavy metal send-up of This Is Spinal Tap to Dan Akroyd and John Belushi getting the band back together in The Blues Brothers. The 1990s were no different, as movies and television were filled with bands we wished had put out full albums and toured, to some that were best left to thirty-seconds of screen airtime. Whether it's capturing the sound of the decade in shows like My So-Called Life and Daria or films such as Singles and Empire Records, or revisiting past decades like the 70s glam rock of Velvet Goldmine and 60s garage rock of That Thing You Do!, there is plenty to rediscover or check out if you missed it the first time around.
