That can't be accurate because Stone Temple Pilots and Alien Ant Farm are not on the list.

No Trix, you are hearing Scotty correctly. Stone Temple Pilots and Alien Ant Farm are actually Hollywood actors who lip sync. The songs you hear on their CDs were actually performed by talented musicians with head and neck deformities. The White Stripes are similar but they are actors from South Lyon Community Theater lip syncing to songs recorded by Mr. Mahaffey and his fifth grade students.

Fingerbang rocks!!!!! I can't say enough about that group. I have torrid dreams about them every night.

I shouldn't directly cobble AAF with STP. STP is one of the all time most successful rip-off bands of the last 30 years. They're catalog of work painstakingly steals from bands as diverse as Pearl Jam, Lush, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and Pearl Jam. The only thing that would make them worse would be if they were actually Creed, who steals their music mainly from Pearl Jam and Jesus Christ.

Alien Ant Farm, on the other hand, is simply a 1 & 1/2 hit wonder band that sucks, and is riding a really bad cover of an 80's pop song. Wow, how original. In that respect they're not much different than every other talentless post-alternative-pseudo-punk-semi-emo band out there that thinks it's funny to put heavy metal site gags and guitar riffs in their songs and videos. (essentially the alternakid version of Red Green) Unlike the ultra-produced and finley tuned sound theft of STP, AAF are just a bunch of talentless retards that got lucky.

So why call them fake bands? Why not?
