Famous bands which the internet has never heard of.

Back in the 90s, there was this awesome band that had a pretty cool image: They pretended to be cryogenically frozen citizens of the communist Soviet Union, who got dethawed and told to play various songs. The songs turned out horribly butchered in their reinterpretations. I particularly remember a version of Hotel California, that featured a flute solo, that is by far the weirdest cover ever made by a band, sounding similar to this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZBgaBIrgzs

Of course nobody here knows what I'm talking about. They were played on the charts back then, but now they have been erased from the history books. I've spent several days searching for them, and now I just give up.

Do you remember them? What other bands can't you find on the internet anymore?

Try as I can, I can't remember anything like this from 1990ss and thy cryo-thing I would surely recall.

There was (is) a German comedy band since the 2010s that claims to be a Polish family of musicians, and many well-known world hits have been stolen from them (the aunts, their uncles, their parents, their grand parents, etc.) by the capitalist west...but there is no cryogenic reference...

No, sorry, that's not the band. The production quality was top notch, and it wasn't a live band. It's sad that if you so much as mention Russia in a search engine, it just ignores the music tag, and just starts talking about the country and the Soviet Union, and actual Russian bands. They're not listed under Hotel California covers.

The band was more in line with fake-international parody band Caramba, which among others made this song:

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.

      Just found out piped.kavin.rocks has a build-in audio-only for video's (great for music video's). Never thought something like this (including browser extensions) excisted. This would have saved me a lot of money on vacation, where I was camping without wifi.
