Zack Attack

From Rocklopedia Fakebandica
Jump to navigationJump to search

From the lightweight comedy series Saved by the Bell[1]. Named for the band's (and show's) pretty boy egomaniac preppie leader, Zachary "Zack" Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar). The band exists because having a band is just something that high schoolers in TV land do. In the most band-centric episode, "Rockumentary" (11/30/91), Casey Kasem guest stars as himself and narrates a dream sequence where the band become big and famous. But usually the band just shows up playing the occasional school dance. Lineup: drummer Albert Clifford "AC" Slater (Mario Lopez), bassist Lisa Turtle (Lark Voorhies), guitarist Zack Morris, keyboard player Samuel "Screech" Powers (Dustin Diamond), and sometimes Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Amber Thiessen) or Jessica "Jessie" Spano (Elizabeth Berkley) on vocals.

The Saved by the Bell soundtrack album[2] features several Zack Attack tracks: "Love Me Now," "Make My Day," "Friends Forever," and "Did We Ever Have A Chance?" Thanks to Alex Brounstein, Hooper_X, Ariail King, Ryan A. MacMichael, MonPetitRouge, Naylon and Queen Margot for this one.
