Natalie Portman's Shaved Head
When they peaked: SPIN posting on their name change with divine optimism.
In fairness, this band changed their name to Brite Futures… and then broke up. They basically invented the half-ass photoshop album cover, quickly exploding as one of those bands you can’t help but scoff at on hearing the name. Before PBR&B was considered a genre, people had to look somewhere to break out their mediocre dance moves, and Natalie Portman’s Shaved Heads perfected the catchy but empty dance and singalong song. With songs about topics like hooking up with “yr” daughter and having a rather noteworthy ponytail, it’s hard to say in good faith that anyone misses this band.
