Kiedis handled it surprisingly well and when he got up he said: “I love the Rolling Stones,” The Sun reports.

  • The Eagles

    None of them are eagles. If only they were, then they could maybe have escaped the Hotel California via an open window.

  • Barenaked Ladies

    Disappointingly, none of them are ladies, nor naked.

  • 10,000 Maniacs

    Not only are they not maniacs, but there are only five of them.

  • The Doors

    Definitely people, not doors.

  • Pixies

    Couldn't be less pixie-like if they tried.

  • The Arctic Monkeys

    Do monkeys even <em>live</em> in the Arctic? No! Misleading on so many levels.

  • The Animals

    Sadly human.

  • The Police

    None of them were members of the constabulary.

  • Small Faces

    All of them had normal-sized faces.

  • Red Hot Chilli Peppers

    Definitely human, not capiscums.

  • T.Rex

    Disappointingly people, not a carnivorous dinosaur.

  • Butthole Surfers

    To be fair, they <em>might</em> be. But we're assuming not.

  • Super Furry Animals

    They're pretty super, admittedly. But furry? And animals? No.

  • The Shadows

    Not merely shadows, but also three-dimensional human beings.

  • The Black Eyed Peas


  • Stray Cats

    Although to be fair, actual stray cats may have sounded better.

  • Martha And The Muffins

    Martha, yes. Muffins? No. There was only one other person in the band, and his name was Mark.

  • The Smashing Pumpkins

    They weren't pumpkins - smashing or otherwise - nor did they ever, to our knowledge, go around smashing pumpkins. So, disappointing on two levels.

  • The Cranberries

    Sadly not small, edible fruit. But then they sounded all the better for that.

  • A Flock Of Seagulls

    Although to be fair, the lead singer's hairstyle did have two wings.
