A group formed half-heartedly in high school in the hope of meeting girls.  Starting out with mastering the opening guitar riff from “Smoke on the Water” and progressing to two hour rehearsals in the drummer’s parents’ garage, the group of acne-ridden misfits eventually specializes in anemic covers of Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, and Aerosmith.  Much discussion goes into their name, with suggestions ranging from “Bilbo’s Hat” to “Frothing Mongoose”.  At last, the band plays one high school dance where their amps blow twenty minutes into the first set.  They summarily break up, although one of them keeps threatening to get everybody back together again to watch their ill-fated debut, documented on VHS that night by some geek from the AV club.
