Let's address the elephant in the room, there are too many Sandwich Rock bands that share the same name. For some reason, Rock and Roll bands love to name themselves after the most popular sandwiches, and that's a big problem.
When two bands choose the same name, Google and Bing will combine their information in search results, and will attribute songs and lyrics to the wrong bands. It's quite the condundrum. Our mission today is to reduce the confusion and try to make sense of it all.
The 1st thing we wanted to do was determine which sandwich names are chosen by bands the most. After extensive research, we took our results and created a simple table of the top 10 sandwich names used by bands.
Top 10 Sandwich Names Used By Rock Bands
Hot Club Sandwich
The 2nd thing we wanted to do was to research which bands fell into each sandwich category. We organized the bands by their sandwich names, determined what country they were from, and tried to organize their social links.
To make it easier, we created a simple chart with examples of Sandwich Rock bands who share the same name, along with Social and Article links, so you can learn more about the bands. (We only showed the Top 2 Bands for each Sandwich Name.)
Finally, the 3rd thing we wanted to do was pick the Top 2 Bands from each category, give a brief description of who they are, and then share one song out of those two bands.
Our main goal was to eliminate confusion when we searched for bands with similar sandwich names in Google or Bing, and try to seperate any overlaps in the search results. It took some work, but we feel that our goal was partially accomplished and the bands are easier to follow now.
So, without further ado, here are Last Sandwich's favorite two bands from each sandwich category in the "Top 10 Sandwich Names" list.
