/EINPresswire.com/ As an early Thanksgiving treat, TakeLessons presents a list of bands with a holiday twist.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and all around the U.S. people are scrambling to get the last-minute ingredients for the big meal. TakeLessons (http://takelessons.com), the nation’s fastest growing music lessons provider, took the opportunity to publish a list of popular bands with names that make them perfect to invite to Thanksgiving dinner.

The following is an excerpt from the blog post, as originally published on Loudwire.com:

“1. Buckcherry
You may think of Warrant when you think of cherry pie, but for the ultimate cherry pie we only use the best, Buckcherry. Frontman Josh Todd and his crew are as sweet as can be since not only did they tour nonstop in 2011 but they also held a charity concert earlier this year for a great cause. If Buckcherry isn’t your cherry of choice, there’s always Black Stone Cherry.

2. Meatloaf
Forget the turkey, this Thanksgiving is all about Meat Loaf. The artist known as Meat Loaf, whose birth name is Marvin Lee Aday, is not only a successful musician but a bit of a veteran actor, making appearances in films such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Wayne’s World and Fight Club just to name a few. He even showed off his own cooking skills as a contestant on the most recent season of Celebrity Apprentice.

3. Pearl Jam
Most people can’t have their biscuits without some sugary jam. Pearl Jam have been rocking since the early ’90s and gave Nirvana a run for its money during the height of the grunge music era. PJ just celebrated their 20th anniversary with a festival in Wisconsin and a documentary film. Our list would be incomplete if we were to leave out Eddie Vedder and the rest of the sweet Jam.

4. Korn
Corn is a great side dish for any feast whether it’s frozen, in a can or on a cob. But when corn becomes Korn, it turns into delish dish of nu-metal goodness. The band’s upcoming album ‘The Path of Totality’ incorporates dub-step into the mix, adding a new chapter to the storied career of Korn. With a new single called ‘Narcissistic Cannibal,’ we just hope Korn stick to eating a traditional meal at Thanksgiving this year.

5. Red Hot Chili Peppers
For the lovers of spicy food, no meal would be complete with some Red Hot Chili Peppers, which spices up any of the dishes on this list for Thanksgiving. This band remains as flavorful today as they were when they first started out in 1983. Jump ahead to 2011 where they have released their 10th studio album ‘I’m With You.’ Let’s face it, who doesn’t like a little spice in their life — whether it’s on their plate or on their iPod!

6. Smashing Pumpkins
Pumpkin Pie anyone? What Thanksgiving dinner is complete without a little bit of the season’s favorite dessert. And how do you get the filling for this delicious treat — by Smashing Pumpkins, of course.”
