Cairo, Egypt

Sounds like: Nothing you’ve ever heard before. Unless you grew up in the 80’s, in which case you’ve heard this before.

Fun fact: Raffi turned down the chance to perform at Madison Square Garden in New York City because it wouldn’t have allowed him to interact closely enough with his audience, according to Wikipedia.

Find them:

Milli Vanilli

Munich, Germany

Sounds like: Not at all what you’d expect.

Fun fact: Despite talking with thick accents, they sing with impressively perfect American cadence. From “Girl You Know It’s True” to “Blame It On The Rain,” you simply won’t believe what your ears are hearing. Wouldn’t surprise us to see Milli Vanilli staying on top of the charts for years to come.

Find them:

Rebecca Black

Irvine, California

Sounds like: Nails on a chalkboard.

Fun fact: You’re going to feel like a douchebag for hating on Rebecca Black, because she seems like a good person. After the 2011 Japan earthquake, she vowed to donate proceeds from her piece-of-shit single “Friday” to disaster-relief efforts.
