Your Favorite Bands as Simpsons Characters

by Rob Slater on August 21, 2014

In case you haven't heard, FXX will be airing every single episode of The Simpsons in a row. For those of you not keeping count over the last 25 years, that is 552 episodes all in a row. Throughout the shows history, they have always stayed in tune with pop culture and that includes staying up on musical references.

Here are a few classic bands in their Simpsons form. Some appeared on the show and some were made, but all will serve as a nice complement as you make your way through the 12-day marathon.

Umphrey's McGee

Phish

Smashing Pumpkins

The White Stripes

Ramones

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Metallica

Pearl Jam (sort of)

The Decemberists

Daft Punk

Didn’t Sonic Youth make an appearance? That’s my choice. Even if it’s make believe in my head. I wanna say they did the closing theme as well

Where’s Spinal Tap, and The Who, and Michael Jackson, and… weak ass thrown together list that’s nothing more than shitty click-bait.

NRBQ was animated on the show—and was the only band to be filmed and shown in the flesh, playing the end theme tune during the credits.
