So, this countdown is about MY TOP 10: Fictional Bands and what songs best represent those bands. I’m going to throw in about 5 BONUSES throughout this countdown as well. It’s a fun one in a different kind a way (MY TOP 10s are always fun, aren’t they?), so I’m going to be a little looser with it. I’m going to go girl-boy-girl-boy as much as I can, so this time around the men will be on top. I’ve let the women lead more than a few times, so turnabout is fair play.
This was that hot 80s cartoon band with the rainbow-punk-haired girls with the crazy makeup. A little sci-fi, a little fashion, a little punk, and a lot ’80s, with a lot of music, too. It was a Hasbro toy deal that was accompanied with a cartoon much like Transformers and G.I. Joe. Jem was pink-haired and Madonna-inspired before P!nk. Casettes came with the dolls and music videos were featured in the cartoon. Hasbro took the music seriously. And, so did Jem and The Holograms.
***BONUS***Jem and The Holograms “Glitter and Gold”
***BONUS***Jem and The Holograms and The Misfits “Click Clash”
Their rival band in the cartoon were The Misfits (not to be mistaken with the real band). Where Jem and the Holograms were a little more pop and soulful, The Misfits were a little more punk, rock, and new wave. They had their own videos as well as duets of sorts with Jem and The Holograms. Here’s one of those collabos.
