The Band Bio Generator

Haha! Now this is great. I've been in a bunch of bands and getting someone to write you a good bio is so hard. Writing your own bio is corny but if you let the label do it, it's guaranteed to be thoroughly embarrassing; either because its so fucking clueless or just so over the top and blown out of proportion.

Generally a bio is something the band never wants their "fans" to see; its really designed to drum up support from other industry drones for an upcoming record. Its basically a sheet of paper where the record label tries to uses expensive adjectives in an attempt to convince people that THIS band is the next Beatles and their new record is 2007's answer to Sgt.Pepper. In fact, I don't think I've ever been privy to a friends bands bio that didn't make me shit myself because it was just so full of crap.

I wish this site was around years ago. I could've just plugged my bands name in there and it would've spit out a perfect bio.
