    * Green Ice-T
    * Emerson Lake & Farmer

    (that took me WAY to long to come up with. You guys are good.)

    “Jefferson Prius” = soooo awesome.

    Can I hire you to do fun and creative artistic stuff (involving programming and Publisher and whatever else you use to make your blog look so great) at my blog? I’ll pay – all the personal satisfaction you can eat.

    • October 24, 2011 11:51 pm

      What do you need? Maybe I can whip something up after I get out of work at the license plate shop but before lockdown.

  8. October 23, 2011 12:08 pm

    “Soy-Based Meatlike Loaf” – Awesome and disgusting.

    • October 24, 2011 11:56 pm

      Soy is like the duct tape of food. You can do just about anything with it.

  9. October 24, 2011 7:34 pm

    “The Beach Preservation Boys”
    “Driftwood Mac”
    “The Talking Cabbage Heads”

    That’s the best I can do. It’s crap, I know. My favourite one of yours was N.W.A. Great work!

    • October 24, 2011 11:59 pm

      “The Talking Cabbage Heads” could be a great TV program for kids. Like a mashup of Beatrix Potter and David Byrne.

  10. October 27, 2011 12:46 am

    I can’t wait to give these bands a try just as soon as my organic CD player finishes growing.

  11. October 28, 2011 2:37 pm


    I laughed out loud repeatedly — I do think my favorite is Hole (Grain), or perhaps Soy-Based Meatlike Loaf. Or perhaps I’m just hungry…

    Congrats on the Freshly Pressed nod, japecake — well deserved!

    This post was right up my alley. Right over there… see it? No, over… left a little… little more.. THERE! Right over there. Yeah.

      Not sure why I find this one so hilarious, but I do. ๐Ÿ™‚

        My parents said the same thing when they picked me up at the orphanage.

    • October 29, 2011 8:08 am

      I took this term to mean a hip, urban shoer of horses.

  14. October 28, 2011 4:15 pm

    Totally hilarious and brilliantly creative! Had me laughing out loud more than once. Congrats on a well-deserved freshly pressed!

  15. October 28, 2011 4:20 pm

    Awesome list! I humbly submit-

    Electric Light Emitting DIode Orchestra
    Crowded LEED-Certified House
    Non-GMO Korn – that’s not a band, that’s my shameless plug

    Tell me who I have to $%**# to get here just once!

    • October 28, 2011 5:34 pm

      I assume “$%**#” stands for “punch.” In that case, it’s easy: Donald Trump.

      • October 30, 2011 6:30 pm

        Savvy Sister and I will have to pummel the *@stard, as I too wonder who you have to know or….. to get one great post featured!!! Very funny and a fun read. Great job!!!

    They already came up with the best and made a movie about it too. SoilentGreen Remember that movie? Creepy but conservation motivated.

    • October 29, 2011 7:56 am

      Yes, but Soylent Green was fresh people. My version is 100% post-consumer recycled people.

    Congrats on the FP!

    Greener Hotter Chilli Peppers!

  22. October 28, 2011 9:28 pm

    Very funny! I’m not musical, so I don’t get some of the references, but it’s still hillarious! Someone should open an Environmental Biology class with this.

  23. October 28, 2011 10:54 pm

    Soy-Based Meatlike Loaf !!!

    • October 29, 2011 7:59 am

      Thank you for your trio of exclamation points. I will add them to my collection of punctuation marks and treasure them always, or until the market improves enough to make it worthwhile to sell.

  24. October 29, 2011 2:35 am

    Ooh, fun!

    Cute! Super hilarious!

    • October 29, 2011 8:00 am

      Part of my anatomy was once described in exactly the same way. Of course, the circumstances were much different.

      • October 30, 2011 11:09 pm

        The cute part or the super hilarious part?

      • October 30, 2011 11:31 pm

        Both, naturally. Though, come to think of it … I’m gonna have to review that video again.

  26. October 29, 2011 2:59 pm


  27. October 29, 2011 3:07 pm

    Great idea! Wish I could come up with a band name somebody hasn’t allready thought of here :O(

    Congratulations on being freshly pressed again! If you keep this up, you’ll have to start a new category in which you can archive your award-winning posts.

    I humbly suggest Olivia Gluten-free John and Five Man Electrical Band (now EnergyStar compliant!).

    • October 31, 2011 10:54 pm

      You ONJ reference made me think of Xanadu, and how much coal must have been burned to power all of those neon lights. Not to mention all of the petroleum products it must have taken to manufacture those hundreds of pairs of roller skates. As if the movie wasn’t bad enough already.

  36. October 30, 2011 10:40 pm

    LOL LOL LOL ……………. ๐Ÿ˜€

  37. October 31, 2011 4:57 am

    We should move into this kind of green energy. Thanks buddy for this kind of post.

    • October 31, 2011 10:57 pm

      Yes, I definitely agree that we need to be moving toward a humor-blog-powered economy.

  38. October 31, 2011 3:04 pm

    This is epic, I love how other people love music!

    • October 31, 2011 11:08 pm

      People will think I’m joking when I say that I currently have Brahms in my CD player and Al Jolson on my Victrola:
