The New Monkees
Oof. It worked once, why not again, right? Well, the original Monkees actually had proven hit songwriters writing their songs and the band members were chosen for their charisma. Marty Roos, Larry Saltis, Jared Chandler and Dino Kovas sung committee-spawned pablum and were committee-chosen doofuses in their 1987 show, also named The New Monkees. And one of their names was Jared, fer Chrissakes. Plus, it was 1987 and everything sucked then, especially music.
