    Sonic Youth was in the episode Homerpallooza

    Aerosmith was in Flaming Moe's

    Red Hot Chili Peppers was in the episode Krusty Gets Kancelled


    Ringo, George, and Paul were all in episodes, not John, so the Beatles were not

    Ringo in Brush With Greatness

    George in Homer's Barbershop Quartet

    Paul in Lisa the Vegetarian

    note: the 3 bands that were in the Simpsons all performed
    RHCP played Give It Away
    Sonic Youth played the Simpsons Theme Song (they also ate out of Peter Framptons cooler)
    Aerosmith played Walk This Way (feat. Moe)

    Homerpalloza is one of the few Simpsons episodes I've seen. Billy Corgan also appeared in that episode, if I recall correctly?

    With that said, I had no idea the Simpsons were able to get a hold out of these great bands. I would have assumed George, Paul, and Ringo would have been near-impossible to get a voice-over from without the Simpson's creators dumping a substantial amount of money.

    Here's one:
    Buddy Holly
    Blue Oyster Cult
    Black Sabbath
    Deep Purple
  • sonicnerd23sonicnerd23 Road Warrior
    edited May 2008
    Buddy Holly formed in the 50's while the other 3 formed in the 60's. Even BOC, albiet Soft White Underbelly.

    Or, Deep Purple's first letter isn't B.

    The three bands listed all have colors in their names while Buddy Holly obviously does not, or three are bands and one is an individual.

    no and no.
    I probably made this a little too tough but I'll listen to a few more before telling you guys the answer.

    Blue Öyster Cult is the only one with 3 words in its name?
  • RollnkutterRollnkutter Unsigned
    edited May 2008
    The answer is:

    With the exception of Black Sabbath, all of these are the names of songs performed by bands and artists who don’t share the same name as the song.

    Buddy Holly – Weezer
    Blue Oyster Cult – Shonen Knife
    Deep Purple - Peter DeRose

    So... who goes next?
  • sonicnerd23sonicnerd23 Road Warrior
    edited May 2008
    I guess I will.

    AC/DC
    ZZ Top
    Huey Lewis and the News
    Sammy Hagar
  • MuffsterMuffster Opening Act
    edited May 2008
    ZZ Top is the only band listed who has retained its original members since the band formed.

    Probably a stretch, since Sammy Hagar isn't a band, but has played in a bunch of them.

    just throwing that out there
  • sonicnerd23sonicnerd23 Road Warrior

    Nope. I'll give you a hint. It has something to do with movie soundtracks.

    Sammy was the only musician to appear on the Heavy Metal soundtrack. What a deliciously kitschy movie...

    I remember that movie! I saw it a few months ago on VH1 Classic. They parodied it in South Park as well. (the latest episode)

    Nope. Think sci-fi movies.

    Black Sabbath, the song, was covered. I think you need to say it's the only song whose original artist did not have the same name as the song.

    Really? VH1 Classic does show some pretty interesting films - "Woodstock", "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey", "Gimme Shelter", etc. - but I didn't think VH1 was that cool. They must've had to censor a bit of Heavy Metal, though. ;) I liked that South Park episode, as well.

    Huey Lewis & The News did the soundtrack to Back to the Future!

    Warmer. Oh, so warmer. But still not it.

    You got that switched around. It's "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey", haha. That was a great documentary, though. My brother has a copy of it that I watched one time.

    Hrm. Well, AC/DC's "Who Made Who" was the soundtrack to Stephen King's Maximum Overdrive (I guess it could be considered a sci-fi film?), Sammy did Heavy Metal, and Huey did Back to the Future, so that would leave ZZ Top as the odd group out?

    D'oh! I actually had a feeling I mixed it up. Probably should of checked Wikipedia first. Any way, for someone who is usually not into metal, I found the movie was pretty darn interesting. They interviewed a lot of great musicians.
  • HungryfreakHungryfreak Headliner

    Yeah, I saw it when I was first getting into metal. Gave me a greater appreciation for the genre as well as a lot of knowledge about it.

    ZZ Top and Huey Lewis were both featured in Back to the Future movies

    Van Halen was played, which would feature Hagar

    leaves AC/DC out
