Hi
Not really a puzzle in the usual sense, so if it needs to move to Mixed Bag please feel free, but there is hopefully some thoughtful and fun head scratching nonetheless.
It came to mind from an ongoing thread at MIxed Bag about things we like to listen to.
Put simply, what band or performer based on their name should have performed a song based on its name. For example:

Losing My Religion (REM) should have been performed by Faith No More
Who Let The Dogs Out (Baha Men) should have been performed by Bow Wow Wow

The best answer by consensus and acclamation wins this bright shiny car car
