    A mock heavy metal band similiar to Spinal Tap, featuring cast members from 'The Young Ones'. They actually played a real set at Monsters of Rock 1986, much to the anger of the audience and other bands playing who believed them to be a serious band.
    Bad News created for the Channel 4 television series The Comic Strip Presents.... Its members were Vim Fuego (aka Alan Metcalfe), vocals and lead guitar (played by Adrian Edmondson); Den Dennis, rhythm guitar (Nigel Planer); Colin Grigson, bass (Rik Mayall); and Spider Webb, drums (Peter Richardson).
    Bad News made their television debut during 1983, in the first series of The Comic Strip Presents... (written by Edmondson, and produced by Michael White/Comic Strip Productions). The episode, Bad News Tour, took the form of a satirical fly-on-the-wall rockumentary, in which the incompetent band is followed travelling to a gig in Grantham by an almost equally inept documentary film crew. Coincidentally, it was in production at the same time as This Is Spinal Tap, which was released the following year to a much wider audience and subsequently greater acclaim.
