Today I'd thought try something new-ish again, and decided to put that promised new spin on a not so old weekly feature here @ The House of Fun.
So today, for the brand new edition of the Top 5, you're getting a guest host to start the new era off.
So give it up for that true limey, coke-snorting son of a bitch you all know and love,
The Mirror Master:

Aye, 'tis your ol' friend the Mirror Master here, and I wus told I had to sit in and do a wee stint as guest host uv today's edition of the Top 5. So today laddies, I suppose I canna' tell you all about my top 5 favorite Scottish rock bands of all time. And if'n you don' fancy that, feel free to stick aroound later so's I can get to ya all proper like.
Ready? Good, now wit the show as it were.....
5). The Proclaimers
Ya don' haveta walk 500 Miles to enjoy the music from these bug-eyed brothers, but I would. Thankfully I canna just travel that length if need be wit' my mirrors, and go straight on to the source. You can have yurself a good chuckle, but I dare yu to na tell me you weren't dancing to "500 Miles" winnit came out. Go on, I double-dog dare ya.
4). Simple Minds
Seriously people, how could ya no love Simple Mind? Who will ever forgit their contribution to 80's pop culture by lending the iconic movie, The Breakfast Club, their huge smash, "Don't You Forget About Me."
Aye, and while I did have a thing for Molly Ringwald, I haveta confess to wanting to have a go at the wee weird brunette that ate her own hair flakes on her sandwich. What?, You all know I do love me wee flakes!!!!
Plus I just loved Judd Nelson's character. Hey, I'ma Rogue, 'tis natural to root for the bastard. He's an honorary Rogue as far as I'm concerned.
Simple Mind had other hits as well , but none as well remembered as that one.
3). The Skids
Say what ya will, but fuk American Punk bands! Fuk The Ramones and Blondie, which wasn't even a true proper punk band, but a pop band in disguise.
Naw thank you, I'll gladly take The Skids thank yu very much!
The Skids wer the type of band, that other punk bands of the time, such as The Clash and The Sex Pistols seemed ta' imitate and steal licks from. 'Tis true! 'Tis damn true!
If ya na believe me, take a listen to such classic punk anthems like "Sweet Suburbia", "The Saints are coming", and their biggest smash sing to date, "Into the valley."
Lead guitarist Sam Adamson left the group to go start another classic Scottish band in the mid-80's, Big Country. 'Tis true, or as that maukit eejet, Mr. Morbid would say, "Look it up!"
