I’ll admit it: I’d totally go see a Doors cover band where the lead singer was Daffy Duck.  This, by the way, is one of the conversations that my 14-year-old and I have on the drive home from work/school during the week, and you should be jealous that you don’t get to play along.  The question of which animated friend would make the best fictional frontman is a difficult one: Porky Pig would be limited, but fun, whereas Goofy would be great in a kind of Iggy Pop role.  Perhaps the best of all, though, would be Dangermouse covering Dangermaus, leading us to today’s Duck Amuck Query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) thinks that Bugs Bunny would actually be a bass player in the vein of Flea or Paul McCartney, or ideally both, asking: Which cartoon character would make the best fictional frontman for a hypothetical band?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Is Megatron fronting Metallica too on-the-nose?

    Louie the Lightning Bug fronting AC/DC?
    Sherlock Holmes and No Doubt?
    James T Kirk and Starship?
    Hal Jordan and Green Day?
    Ash Williams and The Grateful Dead?
    The Pink Panther and Pink Floyd?
    Dr Manhattan and The Moody Blues?

    …I’ll stop.

  2. Lemmy Caution (@_Lemmy_Caution) on

    Natasha (with Boris on tamborine)

    I am thinking a style like Marianne Faithfull. Or Nico.

  3. Speedy Gonzalez has potential for lead guitar in a Dragon Force cover band. And something brilliant’s bound to happen if you put all of the Herculoids in Kiss outfits.
