The Ramones Meets Abba? Only A Tribute Band Could Pull It Off

Gibson has selected 10 noteworthy tribute bands to singled out. Here are just a couple that caught our eye because of their decision to blend two band's music together:

Gabba (ABBA, The Ramones): Upon forming in 1996, this London-based tribute band immediately set about melding ABBA's dance-pop style with the punk-rock sound of The Ramones, thus giving birth to "disco-punk." The group has been featured in Mojo, Melody Maker, New Musical Express and other high-profile rock publications. Among the outlandish claims listed on their website is the "fact" that a musical based on their songs titled Papa Mao Mao was staged on Broadway.

Beatallica (The Beatles, Metallica): This Beatles-Metallica mashup group got its start as a one-off project at Milwaukee's annual Spoof-Fest in 2001. Encouraged by stellar reviews, the group decided to forge on with its novel strategy of performing Beatles songs and melodies in the metal-riff style of Metallic. The song titles "The Thing That Should Not Let it Be," "And Justice for All My Loving" say it all. Beatallica have opened shows for the likes of Dream Theater, Motorhead and L.A. Guns. The members of Metallica are said to be huge fans. more on this story
