=='''The Wikipedia Fakebandica'''; or '''Rocklopedia Fakebandica 2: Electronic Bookaloo'''==

Hello and welcome to '''The Rocklopedia Fakebandica'''! It's a wiki, because there's just too dang many fictional bands out there for one person to keep up with! 

Click here to find out [[Help:Starting a new page|HOW DO I ADD A BAND?]]

Use the search box on the left there, or [[:Category:Years|Browse by YEAR]] | [[:Category:Media Type|Browse by MEDIUM (TV, film, etc.)]] | [[:Category:Contents|Browse by CATEGORY]]

Want to add some bands? [mailto:&amp;#114;&amp;#111;&amp;#99;&amp;#107;&amp;#108;&amp;#111;&amp;#112;&amp;#101;&amp;#100;&amp;#105;&amp;#97;&amp;#64;&amp;#118;&amp;#103;&amp;#103;&amp;#46;&amp;#99;&amp;#111;&amp;#109; Email] for a login. Post spam or made up stuff and you'll be banned.

Rules? Sure, a few: 
*Keep it real. - Please only bands/musicians from published sources. There's plenty out there; you don't need to make up any on your own. Cite as much source information as possible.
*Keep it honest. - Please don't cut and paste other people's work. Quoting a modest chunk of source material for context is fine, just credit it.
*Keep it clean. - Please only use four letter words when they are direct quotes, or part of a band's name, lyrics, album title, etc.

The old, old site is [http://www.fakebands.com/original-index.html right here], but is no longer updated.
