Bands as The Pirate Bay

Timewasting fun on NME.COM

It’s Friday again and NME.COM is wasting the hours until it’s time to go to the pub.

In reaction to the sentences given to The Pirate Bay founders’ today (who have each been jailed for one year and ordered to pay £2.4 million in damages), we’re asking you to come up with bands as piracy. Anything goes – from illegal torrents to bitrates. Or even real pirate stuff, if you fancy it.

Here’s a few of the ones we’ve come up with so far:

Bandwidth Of Horses
Depeche Modem
Pirate Babyshambles
System Of A Download
Pete And The Pirate Bays
Ooh-Arr Kelly
Cut Copyright Infringement
Shiver Me Justin Timberlake
