Guitar Hero (IRL!), Angelus the Guitar
While I wake up and before I take my first final, I amuse myself. And hey, maybe I'll find a new Rock Band suggestion.

Snitched from seangaffney.

Go to the Wikipedia home page in your preferred language and click "random article." That is your band's name. Click random article again.That is your album name. Click random article 15 more times. Those are the tracks on your album.

Band Name: River Ouzel
Album Name: Polyvinyl Alcohol [HA! I like that.]

  1. Robert and Mariam Hayes Stadium [An interesting start to our debut album.]

  2. Cucuieţi River (Tazlău) [We have an odd river fixation, does this band.]

  3. Ongar (hundred) [Sounds like it should be Scandinavian death metal.]

  4. Institute of Social Psychology [This album is all rivers and buildings!]

  5. Jean-Christophe d'Isigny [Surely a driving rock song whose video would feature a cute little cartoon William the Conquerer killing the hell out of the Britons.]

  6. Workers Front for Indochina [Very Dead Kennedys. Themes in this song will be revisisted in a later album, with the title "People's Front of Judea". Or "Judean People's Front". Well whatever, we'll really hate the Romans.]

  7. Camp Red Cloud [Our break-through single! Frought with biting socio-political commentary, no doubt.]

  8. Pescanova [A stirring instrumental break ]

  9. Compendium of Postage Stamp Issuers (Ci - Co) [Uhm. Yeah. Yeah, I got nothing. But it'll probably get a huge fan following and become a concert staple. That's it.]

  10. Run and Gun [This will be the song that propels us to international stardom. It'll be totally overplayed though, and we'll become resentful of it in our later, more pretentious years. Then we'll rediscover our love for it, after our band's broken up and reformed; it's our instictive need to return to and embrace what made us love music in the first place. Don't worry, you'll learn more about it in our VH-1 special.]

  11. Lithuanians in Chicago [This is our old band name, while we were finding our sound. This song harkens back to those halcyon days.]

  12. ZF [No one knows what this song is about. We never tell them.]

  13. The Virgin & the Wheels [We read a lot.]

  14. Centromere [More social commentary. Hmm. Okay, this one will be all about parents who lost their child, but managed to just clone a replacement. But he's not quite right. And he's PISSED. (And ooo, a whole story just popped into my head here. 'scuse me a sec.)]

  15. Moshe Atzmon [Our final track will be an aggressive classical-style instrumental rock tribute.]

What an odd album.

River Ouzel! Cresting over the banks and FLOODING YOUR TOWN! RAWK!

Band Name: Melbourne Victory season 2007-08 We'll just go by "Melbourne Victory Season" thankyouverymuch.

Album Name: USS Unicorn. No kidding!

Track 1: New Westminster—Coquitlam. We are obviously influenced by the UK and it's colonies.... (this location is in Vancouver, Canada)

Track 2: Smash Hits. We are using the term ironically.

Track 3: Séguéla. Ah, our carefree days in Côte d'Ivoire. The track is heavily influenced by African precussion and gun-running!

Track 4: Georgs Andrejevs. Latvian politicians! How very.....

Track 5: Kesar. Bollywood soaps! Bet their writer's aren't on strike!

Track 6: Plantagenet County, Western Australia. We need to quit naming things after locations, it's boring....

Track 7: Gustav Mole. A critical look at childhood....

Track 8: Friedrichstadt. This is our techo-death metal number.

Track 9: Clock Code. More techno, less death.

Track 10: Burney Treaty. Our final, devastating comment on British imperialism.

We'll stick with 10 tracks because I'm at work and really should be working.

Band name: Zeijen [so, some drug crazed metal/indie band. 10 minute guitar solos ahoy!]

Album name: El Goonish Shive [yep. shrooms.]

Track One: Insectoid [they're plotting against us, man.]

Track Two: Farlowella [so are the fish. NOTHING IS SAFE]

Track Three: Dimension of an Algebraic Variety [18 minute instrumental using bongos, three glasses filled half way with holy water, and a mandolin]

Track Four: Thunder Bay [about how intense WW2 movies are when you're tripping balls]

Track Five: Khazar Correspondence [a capella mash up of right said fred's "i'm too sexy," marilyn manson's "the dope show," and "scarborough fair."]

Track Six: Margot Heinemann [communism, man. this song will be our debut single. it will fail terribly, but gain popularity in our later years due to a kickin' video clip and a cover by bjork]

Track Seven: Tale of Hōgen [longest track on the album. 28 minutes. vocals range from death metal screaming to ridiculous falsetto, ala justin hawkins. this takes us to the end of disc one.]

Track Eight: São Sebastião, Alagoas [tribute to our bass player's hometown.... through the beautiful mystery of the kazoo]

Track Nine: Kevin Finlayson [we like sports, right.]

Track Ten: Sea Otter Rocks [our political anthem]

Track Eleven: Krabbendam [crabs are evil too. especially when they're from the netherlands]

Track Twelve: Hami Prefecture [22 minute rap track systematically destroying organised religion. featuring peaches, timbaland and kathleen hanna. intense, man]

Heh. Love the comment on #10. I tried the meme out and got the worst results ever. My band's called 'List of Prehistoric Foraminiferans' for pete's sake.
