Green Day's Journey Into Night

So, I got this from the Nice Guy. And H and I have been playing this game for awhile now. It's fun. Addictive. But fun.

The idea is to take a book (or play) and a band, and meld them together in some manner.

Like so:

Slaughterhouse Jackson 5
Bowling for Chicken Soup for the Soul
Tom Sawyer & The Heartbreakers
Little Red Riderhood
The Wonderful Wizard of Ozzy
Alice in Wonderchains
Of Mice and Men-At-Work
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow & Oates
Anna & The Kinks of Siam
The Beatles of Madison County
The Glass Tiger Menagerie
Into Thin Lizzie Air
Interview with a Van Halen
The Chronicles of Nirvana
Bon Jovi of the Vanities
Green Day's Journey Into Night

(H stresses that "Cake" is also a band name, and it ought to be used to excess in this particular game.)

And it works for children too:

But Not the Tragically Hippopotamus
Pat the Bunny Benatar
Bowling for Green Eggs and Soup


There are more. There are always more. But I think you get the point, so ...

Give it a try. What can you come up with?

Keep the comments coming!
