Arch Hall, Jr.

Eagle, Bud - The teen idol, Elvis-esque rock 'n' roller (played by Arch Hall, Jr.) in the low budget 1962 cult film Wild Guitar. He sings "Vicki" and "Twist Fever," which in actuality were performed by the actor's band, Arch Hall and the Archers.

East Side Killahz - From The Boondocks (comic strip by Aaron McGruder), Nov. 12, 2002.

Eat Dirt - From the animated TV series The Boondocks (12/11/05). From "The Story of Gangstalicious" episode. Eat Dirt is voiced by real rapper DJ Pooh. Thanks to Me Am Hulk for this one.

Ebony Blackbirds, The - From the TV show Whoopi (2003-04). Ebony Blackbirds, The - In Whoopi Goldberg's shortlived NBC show Whoopi (2003-2004), she plays Mavis Rae, a member of this one hit wonder band ("Don't Hide Love" in 1986) who took her money and bought a hotel. In the "She Ain't Heavy, She's My Partner" episode, she attends the funeral of one of the trio's members; the other member is Florence (Sheryl Lee Ralph). Her character is the TV version of "sassy" - insufferably annoying with a seemingly bottomless supply of hack insults and one-liners. Thanks to Charles Rempel for this one.

Echoes, The - From the movie That Thing You Do (1996).

Economical Pancake - From the TV show Rock Follies / Rock Follies of '77 (1976-77). Devonia "Dee" Rhoades (Julie Covington) used to sing in this rock band previous to The Little Ladies. See also The Little Ladies. Thanks to Cary (like Mary with a 'C' for cat) for this one.

Ed Twilley and the Creepers - From the TV show Mr. Show (). Thanks to Peter Ledebur for this one.

Eddi and the Fey - From the book War for the Oaks (1987). From the urban fantasy novel by Emma Bull. Eddi McCandry is a former guitarist for local Minneapolis rock band InKline Plain. She gets involved with fairies somehow and then later forms this band. See also InKline Plane. Thanks to Jena Boehike for this one.

Eddie and the Cruisers - The subject of not one, but two movies; 1983's Eddie and the Cruisers and 1989's Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives! Both featured the music of the otherwise unknown John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band. The Eddie in question was Eddie Wilson (Michael Paré), a way ahead-of-his-time late '50s/early '60s rocker who fakes his own death. The song "On The Dark Side" actually hit #7 on 09/15/84.

Eddie and the Cruisers Featuring Sal Amato - From the movie Eddie and the Cruisers (1983).

Eddie Barnett and the Eddie Barnetters - Dixieland-esque quintet that plays Cheers during Norm's ill-fated office toga party in the "Friends, Romans, Accountants" episode (11/11/82).

Eddie Enrico and his Hong Kong Hotshots - From the book Vineland (1990). Thomas Pynchon's novel mentions this band.

Eden's Crush - Assembled, pre-fab all girl boy band from the 2001 WB network tv show Popstars. A female version of Making the Band. Or as I like to think of it, a musical version of PBS' The New Yankee Workshop, where ugly men make beautiful things to order. The lucky selectees Nicole Scherzinger, Ivette Sosa, Rosanna Tavarez, Ana Maria Lombo, Maile Misajon get 2 months to record an entire album. Fortunately all the songs are already written, so they can start recording before they even have a name. The band even gets to pick their own name, and are shown discussing and discarding The Deal, Bella, On The Real, Real Deal, Elation, Seek, Amuse, A & E, E & A and Kismet before deciding on the name of a Hawaiian flower. Their sterile grooves shot up the US charts to # 1 when the album came out. Egad, sometimes the Monkees' formula works!

Edwards, Marcy - From the TV show Columbo and the Murder of a Rock Star (1991).

Edwin Drood - From the TV show Jonathan Creek (05/31/97).

Egg Rolls, The - From the movie Shake, Rattle and Rock (1994).

Eldrich, Cassandra - In the 1986 comedy One Crazy Summer, Demi Moore plays this wandering singer-songwriter trying to save her family's house from unscrupulous developers. It's a lot funnier than that sounds. She sings "Don't Look Back." Trivia Time! Director/writer Savage Steve Holland later worked on Shasta McNasty.

Electric Mayhem, The - See Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem

Electric Outlet, The - From Rock 'n' Roll Nights (book by Todd Strasser), 1982.

Electric Shoes, The - Pre-teen garage band that Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage) joins in the Jan. 02, 1990 "Rock and Roll" episode of The Wonder Years. They play Amy Ermin's (Stefanie Scott) birthday party and then break up a week later. Thanks to Pete (mondoprune) for this one.

Electric Underwear, The - From the TV show Mr. Show ().

Electrocutes, The - From the movie Drive Me Crazy (1999)? SORRY-THEY'RE REAL- This was The Donnas' original name.

Ellen Aim
Ellen Aim and the Attackers - Diane Lane plays Ellen Aim, a female rock star kidnapped by a motorcycle gang in the 1984 "rock 'n' roll fable" Streets of Fire. The movie takes place in strange, timeless world where everybody is just as surly and pissy as can be all the time. She gets rescued by Tom Cody (Michael Paré, [who was Eddie in Eddie and the Cruisers]), the cops apparently not interested in a minor crime like kidnapping. The band perform "Nowhere Fast," "Never Be You," "Sorcerer," and "Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young." Ellen Aim's singing voice was Laurie Sargent and Holly Sherwood of Fire Inc. The music is horrible 50s-influenced new wave. Her manager/lover is the money grubbing prick Billy Fish (Rick Moranis). The Attackers were played by William Beard II, Stuart Kimball, Angelo, and John Ryder. Trivia Time! The movie features Lee Ving of punk band Fear as a motorcycle hoodlum and real band The Blasters playing at Torchie's, the motorcycle gang hangout. Ellen Aim and the Attackers is also listed on a computer (in a big list of fake bands) in the 1990 Andrew Dice Clay vehicle, The Adventures of Ford Fairlane. (See also The Sorels)

Elliott, Ramblin' Brad - From Sonic Disruptors #3 (DC comic book mini-series written by Mike Baron, drawn by Barry Crain & John Nyberg), Feb. 1988.

Elway and the Tree Weasels - From the animated TV series Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures (12/05/87). Alvin and the Chipmunks parody from the "Mighty's Benefit Plan" episode. Their big hit is "Twitch and Writhe." They come to Mouseville to do a benefit gig at Scrappy's orphanage. Thanks to Dale Houston for this one.

Emica - Teenybopper pop star voiced by Bold and the Beautiful regular Adrienne Frantz in the "All Growed Up" hour long special of Nickelodeon cartoon Rugrats. She wears a "retro" scorpio medallion similar to one owned by Stu Pickles (Jack Riley), who views it as a good luck charm for disco dancing contests. At the end of the episode, Emica brings Tommy and Angelica onstage for a singalong/flashback. Thanks to Alan for this one.

Emmet Otter's Jug-Band - See The Frogtown Hollow Jubilee Jug-Band.

Entry Number Five - From the TV show Sabrina the Teenage Witch (02/27/98). Thanks to Charles Rempel, katie.knox, and * carla * for this one.

Eracists, The - Or maybe The Erascists (Even the frickin' official Mad TV site has it both ways!). Quartet of upbeat teens who sing about the evils of racism, in painfully earnest high school assembly-style, from at least six sketches on Mad TV. Ya see, they're here to "erase racism," hence the name. Lineup: Leader Debbie (Nicole Sullivan), handicapped Ann (Alex Borstein), African-American Steve (Phil Lamarr) and ? (Will Sasso). In the "Erascists-Middle East" skit, Steve has been replaced with the gay Reggie (Aries Spears). Appearances: "Eracism" (11/08/97), "Eracists: Stand Off" [sent into a white supremacist compound] (01/31/98), "Eracists Go To Jail" [last minute replacements at a Johnny Cash prison concert] (03/28/98), "Erascists-Middle East" [burst into Israeli/Palestinian peace talks] (12/05/98), "Erascists-St. Patrick's Day" [put themselves between gays and the Irish] (03/19/99), and "Erascists-Behind the Music" [parody of VH1 show, explains Steve's replacement by Reggie] (05/01/99). See also Defcon One, Dr. Dazzle, Hoppy Potty, Darlene McBride, Savante, Michael McLoud and Jasmine Wayne-Wayne, Shaunda, Little Hassan Taylor, Willow.

Evar Orbus and His Galactic Jizz-Wailers - See The Max Rebo Band

Everett, Vince - In Jailhouse Rock (1957), ur-rocker Elvis Presley plays Vince, an ex-con who makes good. One of the better Elvis movies, and one that has musical interludes that make sense (i.e. rock star sings song) instead of the weird "I feel a song coming on" quality of his other films. (See also Hunk Houghton)

Everybody Gets Laid - From the movie PCU (1994). Thanks to Russell Vancleave, Mike Coddington, Killer s, and Jennifer Bindeman for this one.

Evil - From RPG World (05/12/04 & 05/17/04). Here and here.

Evil Clowns, The - The 1983 Sony "Video LP," We're All Devo (a compilation of Devo music videos & short films), uses the framing device of having cheesy Big Entertainment exec Rod Rooter (Michael Schwartz) watching (and rejecting) Devo's stuff. He prefers his company's mega-metal group and its lead singer, Numero Uno (who resembles a mid '80s David Lee Roth). His daughter Donut (Saturday Night Live's Laraine Newman) thinks they're "el vomito." The band also gets mentioned in Devo's 1996 CD-ROM game, Adventures of the Smart Patrol.

Evil Petting Zoo - From one of the Austin Powers movies; but I don't know which one.

Evolution Revolution, The - See Lancelot Link and the Evolution Revolution

Exes, The - From The Exes (novel by Pagan Kennedy), 1998.
