New Virtual - cartoon band update

Couple of new pieces to report on since our last outing.
Studio killers are a music collective from Finland, Denmark and the UK.
Not keen to enter the pop spotlight, Studio Killers hired a design team to create whimsical, bright-eyed cartoon characters to represent them in their videos and photos.
A bit Gorillaz in idea but these guys did it to keep out of the pop system spotlight.
Or so it's reported.

Next we have the Simpsons pulling the piss out of popular culture again, this time grunge.
The storyline

The following was taken from the Simpson Wiki

The band was originally a grunge group formed during the early 90's, but after Homer sees Marge and one of her professors from her university together, Homer reforms his grunge group with a different type of music: Guitar Rock Utilizing Nihilist Grunge Energy or GRUNGE. The band is then named Sadgasm.
Their first public appearance was at Springfield University. Some of the band's best songs include Margerine, Shave Me (later made into Brain Freeze, a parody song by Weird Al Yankovic), and Politically Incorrect. A video was filmed for Margerine which featured Homer singing in front of the host and contestants of a parody Jepordy! (one of the contestants was played by Grampa Simpson) and later singing in front of gym bleachers filled with crash test dummies.

The group broke up sometime later because, according to Kurt Loder, Homer holed himself up at his mansion when rumours swirled about an out of control narcotics addiction, which turned out to be insulin because he became diabetic from drinking too many frappuccinos.

Still waiting for a decent video to be posted that hasn't been blocked by the Fox Network for this.
I love the references to Back to the Future. (it's in Spanish)

I thought I'd chuck in some Dethklok for the fun of it.
