[ROUND OF 16] Soggy Bottom Boys vs. The Lone Rangers
Soggy Bottom Boys
From: O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Members: Ulysses Everett McGill, Pete, Delmar O’Donnell, Tommy Johnson
With a guitarist who sold his soul to the Devil and three escaped convicts—one who certainly didn’t get hit by no dat-gum train—their odyssey to return home is riddled with danger. The Soggy Bottom Boys’ constant sorrow spawned an IRL resurgence in popularity for bluegrass music.
The Lone Rangers
From: Airheads (1994)
Members: Chazz Darvey (Brendan Fraser), Rex (Steve Buscemi), and Pip (Adam Sandler)
Some bands get famous from a breakout hit, other bands because of their epic rock operas, but how many get famous for taking hostages? I rest my case. The Lone Rangers set themselves apart with their sound, their energy, their callout to Bea Arthur, and their extensive list of hostage demands. How many other bands can boast such an achievement?
