full title:
"let's call out obvious VG band names so real bands can't use them"

"critical hit" is the template. stuff like that.

•level up!
•star power
•the starmen (using elements of david bowie)
•spin douche (ok that one is sarcastic)
•Dr. Rocknik's Mean Band Machine
•PRINCEss (a prince inspired vg band with a flamboyant singer)
•grindy and the grinders
•rainbow rhodes

first of all, funky fm music just really does it for me.  Even if it's something corny like early mariah carey I can get way into the music with the fm bass and keys going on.   Then, there's everything else in this song.  The enigmatic title.  The synth programming brings out all the right emotional responses in me:  leads that remind me of thunderforce (even if the portamento isn't quite as exaggerated), chording synths that remind me of very old and charming genesis osts like super monaco (except somehow they don't sound as flimsy here), and of course a solid bass.  Great original motifs, interesting harmonies, good melody, rhythm.. everything that can make a song great is here!

There's a big difference between a show being good and a shoe being enjoyable.

•PRINCEss 
 

 

 

if you wrote that as princeSS, you could have a pretty ironic nazi-punk name.

 

 

•the fatalities (horror games band)

 

i love that name.

these hilary clinton-looking women must be pressing their buttholes right up against the sides of the stall and letting it rip.

icing bag style.

I was going to say The Runaway Five but I looked it up and they already exist.I am enjoying what I hear bigtime. 

Half considering changing Electric Guitar Club to Chun Lee Roth, but I think the previous name has grown on me too much.
