In the spirit of Rain (a tribute to the Beatles) and The Atomic Punks (Van Halen tribute band) and Wild Child (a tribute to The Doors), I present to you my ideas for tribute bands. This is the kind of inspired thought I get at 4 a.m., with the afterthought of that terrible, terrible scene in What We Do Is Secret in which neo-hardcore band The Bronx performs as a 1980-era Black Flag playing "Police Story." Just awful. I could not suspend my disbelief after that whatsoever. But I digress. If the following bands were done right, it would be golden:
Salad Days (a tribute to Minor Threat). Runner-up names were Bottled Violence, Filler, Guilty of Being White, and Minor Threat (named after the song "Minor Threat").
Punk Is Dead (a tribute to Crass). Runner-up names were Big M.A.N., The Demo(n)crats, Christ the Band, and, of course, White Punks on Hope.
Atrocity Exhibition (a tribute to Joy Division). Runner-up names were Candidate, Passover, Heart and Soul, Here Are The Young Men, and Warsaw Revisited. (Note: I have had a dream for many, many years of forming a reggae band that plays all Joy Division songs. It would work, I tell you! You heard it here first.)
