A crappy garage rock band trio with delusions of adequacy in several skits of the genius Canadian import sketch comedy television series, The Kids in the Hall. Usually the drummer and bassist would gang up on the leader and browbeat him into things like renaming the band Rod Torfulson's Armada featuring Herman Menderchuk or adding backup singers and renaming the band Rod Torfulson's Armada Featuring Herman Menderchuk and the Dudettes. They had the songs "Camera Man," and "She Watches," but "Trampoline Girl" was their, um, "hit."

In the final KITH episode, (where they've renamed themselves The New Rod Torfulson's Armada featuring Herman Menderchuk) Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes plays a Rock 'n' Roll angel who shows them their future, still practicing in the same damn garage when they're all wheezing seniors. Lineup: Rod Torfulson on drums (Bruce McCulloch), Herman Menderchuk on bass (Mark McKinney), and an unnamed Kevin McDonald on guitar and vocals.

In the Fallout 76 online game (2019), the band gets a mention in a memo as playing the Garrahan Mining Company's family fun day on November 11, 2077, as Rod Torfulson's Armada.
