    C'mon, you know what I mean. And, the fact that you know what I mean says a lot. But, just for fun, let's play...

    Who's the whitest band ever?

    White, in this case, equals "no soul, no funk, no groove, no pocket, no clue."

    And, yes, bands consisting of races other than white can be nominated for "Whitest Band Ever"!

    (Later on, we'll play "Blackest Band," though I think Sly and the Family Stone or Parliament/Funkadelic will probably win hands down!)

    Personally, I can't decide between The Carpenters and Air Supply (REO Speedwagon is on the list, too, but they don't seem to rise to the same level as these two giants of lameness).

    However, as The Carpenters actually had a couple of songs that didn't just lay there and suck dirt, I think, in the end, I'm going with...

    Air Supply = Whitest Band Ever! ;) :p :D :D :D :D :D

    (OK, let's see who the first person is to turn this into a "Racism is wrong! People of every race can groove! You're a racist, man! Why do you have to be so wrong?" thread. Any bets? :smug: )

    weezer is pretty rediculously white.
  6. What about Leo Sayer ? (If you're living outside of the UK or you're just very lucky ;) , you won't know this pint-sized performer from the '70s/'80s).

    If I'm not wong, his mission in life to was to try and out-Michael Jackson, Michael Jackson :rollno: ! Suffice to say, his quest for disco supremecy ended in an embarassing string of micro-hits and an ever decreasing number of talk show appearances through the '80s.

    Nowadays, he runs a small guest house in Penrith :scowl: .

    With your interpretation of white, I'd say the Swedish band Hootenanny Singers, from the early 60's:


    Do you recognize the second guy from the left? He's probably a billionaire today. It's Björn Ulvaeus, one of the founders of Abba...

    I had to think for quite a while to come up with something for this thread. Most punk and metal bands would IMO fit in this thread too. And Techno bands too like Scooter, DJ Bobo etc...

    The first names that came up to me (with my immediate interpretation of "white") was bands like Creedence Clearwater Revival, ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd.... but with the OP's interpretation I wouldn't include them in this thread.

    Not my favourite band, but John Taylor could funk it up a little when the mood took him.
