Can you match the fake rock band to the correct TV show?

Remember phony groups like the Mosquitoes and Scum of the Earth?

It's not easy getting rock bands onto TV shows. They act like, well, rock stars and you probably have to pay them a bunch of money for the appearance and music usage. 

It's much easier to just make up a fake band.

Which is why television has given us so many fun, fictional groups. Below, we booked 11 of our favorites. See if you can match these made-up musicians to the correct television series. Rock it!

9 out of 11. The Scum of the Earth was awful. Nasty, vicious group. Dr. Johnny Fever looked calm, though. He was funny when he was calm, and when he was panic-stricken.
My favorite WKRP episode was when Les and his friend Buddy flew in a plane on Veteran's Day. Hilarious!

11/11. Lowell George of Little Feat was one of the Bedbugs. Johnny Fish and The Fins were really Flash Cadillac and The Continental Kids who previously worked with Ron Howard in the film American Grafitti.(sp?) and that CHIP;s Don Most episode? Yeech! Sonny Bono pulled that same BS on an episode of Love Boat. What were these people thinking?

9/11. Missed 6 and 11. Didn't watch Petticoat Junction much. Never watched Gidget
Gidget is a cute show. But The Gories isn't a very good episode. Most of the episodes that I've seen are good.

You got 10 out of 11
You shredded that one like a guitar solo! Keep on rockin'…
A little knowledge and a lot of guessing goes a long way.
Thank goodness I didn't catch an earworm from this quiz.

Leather & The Suedes was fake, but that's the real Suzy Quatro, and Michael Des Barres of Scum of the Earth was real too (Detective and Power Station)!
