[SEMIFINALS] Wyld Stallyns vs. Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem
From: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure; Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey; Bill & Ted Face the Music
Members: William “Bill” S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan
You know your band is going to be significant when people travel across time to ensure you make your music. Bill and Ted may have had more skill with air guitars than actual guitars, but their journey through time taught them how to rock—and pass their history test to keep the band together. Excellent!
Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem
From: The Muppet Show
Members: Dr. Teeth, Janice, Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Zoot, Animal, Lips
Sporting what is, inarguably, the best band name in history (real or fictional) and the most on-brand musicians ever, the house band for the Muppet Show was explosive (sometimes literally) in popularity, relevance, range, and musical virtuosity.
