List of Scott Pilgrim Characters - Bands

Bands

(The names of all the bands in Scott Pilgrim have thus far been references to video games, with the exception of an unnamed band that plays during Volume 5 dressed up as skeletons.)

  • Sex Bob-omb is Scott's band with Stephen Stills (vocals and guitar) and Kim Pine (on drums). The name refers to Bob-omb, a character from the Super Mario series and either the Flipper song "Sex Bomb", or the Tom Jones' "Sex Bomb" song. They are an average band, neither wildly popular nor terrible, though the banality of later recording their album results in the band hardly ever playing gigs or practicing and thus getting rusty. In Scott Pilgrim vs. the World film, the music of Sex Bob-omb is provided by Beck.
  • The Clash at Demonhead is the band of Scott's ex-girlfriend Envy. The name refers to the NES game Clash at Demonhead, as well as recalling the punk band The Clash. In the film, their music is provided by Metric.
  • Sonic & Knuckles is Scott's first band, in high school with Kim Pine and Lisa Miller. It is named after the Sega Genesis game Sonic & Knuckles.
  • Crash and the Boys is another local band, whose songs are short as 0.4 seconds long. Its name refers to an NES game, Crash 'n the Boys: Street Challenge, localized from the Japanese Kunio-kun series. They later rename themselves The Boys!! And Crash!! in volume 3. In the film, their music is provided by Broken Social Scene.
  • Kid Chameleon is Scott's university band with Stephen Stills, Envy, as well as Young Neil's sister Stephanie, among others. It is named after the Sega Genesis game Kid Chameleon.
  • Shatterband is a band made up of Scott Pilgrim (guitar and vocals) and Kim Pine (drums) at the end of volume 6. Much like in Sex Bob-omb, Kim is shown shouting "We are Shatterband! ONE-TWO-THREE-FOUR!" at the beginning of one of their songs. As it turns out, the only two people who could be their fans, Knives Chau and Young Neil, have "developed taste", so they decide to play exclusively to Ramona's cat instead. This band is likely named after the NES game Shatterhand.

Famous quotes containing the word bands:

    The thing that struck me forcefully was the feeling of great age about the place. Standing on that old parade ground, which is now a cricket field, I could feel the dead generations crowding me. Here was the oldest settlement of freedmen in the Western world, no doubt. Men who had thrown off the bands of slavery by their own courage and ingenuity. The courage and daring of the Maroons strike like a purple beam across the history of Jamaica.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    According to the historian, they escaped as by a miracle all roving bands of Indians, and reached their homes in safety, with their trophies, for which the General Court paid them fifty pounds. The family of Hannah Dustan all assembled alive once more, except the infant whose brains were dashed out against the apple tree, and there have been many who in later time have lived to say that they have eaten of the fruit of that apple tree.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    While they were there, the time came for her to deliver her child. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 2:6,7.
