All Hail the Machine That Manufactured These Five Bands

The art of forming and maintaining a band is a delicate one that few have mastered over any extended period of time. The Rolling Stones are perhaps the best example of successful longevity. It’s no surprise that bands formed by a third party are quick to rise to fame, and equally quick to fall-the-eff-apart. These five bands are notable, either for the music they made, their foundations, or their swift and fiery demise.

Conclusion

A strange list to be sure, devoid of what you’d expect when you think of a manufactured band, it goes to show you that the corporate machine comes in all shapes and forms. Sometimes it’s to a beautiful end, as the first three on the list prove. Sometimes it’s just hilarious(gracias Menudo!). Sometimes, however, it’s just plain pathetic. Whatever the outcome, manufactured bands will continue to be made, and we just have to wait and see what they will have to offer.
