Ten bands we'd watch on TV


The breakout success of Flight of the Conchords got us thinking of other bands that would make for must-see TV. After all, no one makes money selling records these days, and a band's gotta make a living somehow, right? So we went into brainstorming mode (in this case, that means we drank a fifth of rotgut booze on an empty stomach and put the iTunes on shuffle till inspiration hit) and came up with this list of ten musical acts we'd watch on TV, presented in convenient slide-show format. Enjoy!
