Go To

An alternative rock band that made several known singles between the late 1990's and early 2000's. Its founding members include: A.J. Popoff (vocals), Jeremy Popoff (lead guitar), Allen Shellenberger (drums), and Kevin Baldes (bass).


Lit provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Attackof The 50 Ft What Ever: In the music video for "Miserable" they play all over the body of a giant Pamela Anderson. Unfortunately for the band she chases them down and eats them alive.
    • One of their other videos features "Mulletron", a Humongous Mecha with the power to give people mullets and garish clothes via zapping them with a laser.

  • Colossus Climb: Their most famous video features them exploring Pamela Anderson's body.
  • Death by Music Video: Their video for "Miserable" features the band playing on a giant Pamela Anderson. For most of the video, Pam seems happy to let them perform and walk on her various body parts, but towards the end of the video she suddenly turns on the band and starts hunting them down and swallowing them alive. Starting with the bassist and one-by-one gobbling them up until finally devouring lead singer A.Jay Popoff.
  • Face of the Band: One of the few examples where there are two, owing to the fact that they are brothers and founding members of the band. Both A. Jay and Jeremy Popoff serve as the public faces of the band and the ones who are most often seen speaking for the band as a whole in interviews.

  • Hot Paint Job: Jeremy Popoff, the band's lead guitarist's Iconic Item(s) are pair of shoes with white flames on them.
  • Genre Shift: Though mostly known as an Alt Rock group, in recent years they've experimented with other styles and have currently found success in country music.
  • Gushing About Guest Stars: Their episode of V.I.P. featured its fair share of this, with the female members of VIP all fawning over them and Val being starstruck. Though Pam being a real life fan probably contributed. And the video played at the end subverts it by featuring Val as a Giant Woman who toys with the guys as she swallows them whole.
  • Nice Shoes: Jeremy Popoff has pair of shiny black shoes with white flames on them called "hot rods" which he wears for his performances and for music videos. They get special attention in the video for Miserable.

  • No Body Loves The Bassist: Kevin Baldes, the band's bassist, is the first one to get eaten in the music video for "Miserable".
  • One Steve Limit: Previously subverted with their late original drummer, Allen Shellenberger, and lead vocalist A. Jay Popoff, whose first initial stands for Alan.
  • Sibling Team: Lead singer A. Jay Popoff and guitarist Jeremy Popoff are brothers.
  • What Did I Do Last Night?: The premise of "My Own Worst Enemy" is about getting so black out drunk that the singer can't remember how his car wound up on his lawn, climbing through his window when he got locked out of his house, or the violent argument he had with his girlfriend that ended with her chucking something at his head and taking off.
  • While Rome Burns: The music video for "Over My Head" starts with the band performing in a nightclub while the Drej are attacking the earth.


Video Example(s):


Miserable, between her legs

The band Lit is framed several times between the giantess Pamela Anderson/Valerie Irons legs. Both for fan service and to show her having "power" over them.
