Who would your Monkey Island Supergroup be comprised of?

I originally thought this thread would be a little strange to post, but then I though 'Stuff it, I'll put it up anyway!'.

So, anyway, if you were to put together a band (music band) entirely of Monkey Island characters, who would play what instrument? Your band can be whatever genre and can have as many members as you like. Give you band a name as well as the name of a hit song. Mine would be:

Edward Van Helgen - Lead Guitar
Guybrush Threepwood - Lead Vocals and Guitar
Morgan LeFlay - Guitar (Dunno why, she'd just look cool :) )
Gaffer Crimpdigit - Brass (horns, sax, etc.)
Reginald Van Winslow - Bass (he'd remind me of Randy Jackson)
Noogie - Drum & Percussion
Jojo the Monkey - Piano & Keyboards

Name: The Screaming Narwhals
Hit Song: "Banang (Rock Mix)"

    Guybrush can't sing for toffee! He proved this in CMI when he auditioned for the Barbershop Quartet. Now RAP I think he could do...

  • I can imagine the ferryman from Chapter 5, sitting alone in the gloom of the underworld, playing a cello.

    That's a creative thought! :)

    What about that G-whatisname (the one at the Crossroads who looks like an old non-human primate) playing depressing tunes on an oboe to the darkness? Slow, minor progressions on the oboe make me feel very sad, actually. *eyes well up with tears*
