They may have started out as a band put together to make a 'mockumentary' movie (a classic, by the way); but they've been touring ever since and writing their own music. What difference does it make how they were put together, they are a band now. More so than the Monkees ever were. They were another 'fake' band from decades ago that was put together by a TV studio.

Iron Maiden can kick their a*ses any day!!
Better than most out there..
For what the last reviewer called a "Fake band" they have consistantly put out better rock music than half of the so-called "Hard Rock" or "Heavy Metal" acts out there. This video is fun. It fits well in the vein of rock videos, and it is exactly what you want in a music video. Entertainment. 5 stars..
You Know It's a Joke, Right?
VanHalenizer, I hope you know that Spinal Tap isn't a real band. It's a spoof band of metal, from the classic mockumentary movie Spinal Tap directed by Rob Reiner. As for the video itself, I haven't seen it, but if its anything like the movie I'm sure it's hysterical.
They just couldn't stay silent after the amazingly solid "Black Album" they managed to deliver one more amazing album with this song as the leadoff. One of the best riffs ever my the tap live on forever!!! Sick Video as well.
