Names -> Real or Fake Band Names -> Quiz #1

Here we have a list of bands supplied by visitors to the site that challenge you to determine which are made up and which are by bands that have recorded albums. It's impossible to know whether some band is using a name locally or is some unsigned youTube sensation, so all "real" bands are groups that have records that are listed at amazon.
