Millionaires

Few acts have used their MySpace page more effectively than Millionaires, appearing with Cash Cash, Kill Paradise and Watchout! Theres Ghosts. Hot sisters Melissa and Allison Green, supplemented by their equally photogenic pal Dani Artaud, used Apple's GarageBand program to assemble a novelty song called "I Want Money," and quicker than you can say "Gather 'round, pervs," the track landed atop MySpace's top artists' chart. Since then, the ladies have churned out the likes of "Ooh Uh Huh," currently the theme song for A Double Shot at Love, MTV's latest skankery tribute, and "I Move It," which sounds remarkably like Kirsten Dunst's cheerleader chant at the beginning of Bring It On. Yes, most of their stuff is grating after about ten seconds or so — but in today's real-life version of Short Attention Span Theater, that's more than enough time to make a mark. While they're not millionaires yet, I wouldn't bet against them.
