    Spinal Tap stated out as a fictitious band, but the actors who formed that band actually do play, record and appear at concerts under the name Spinal Tap.

    They consisted of comedians who used to play together for fun. They came up with the idea for the movie while jamming. They recorded the music on the soundtrack themselves and got such a good response that, several years later, they recorded a 2nd album and started playing gigs.

    The key band members are portrayed by Michael McKean (as David St. Hubbins), Christopher Guest (as Nigel Tufnel) and Harry Shearer (as Derek Smalls). They first appeared in a 1978 ABC comedy special, The TV Show.

    Albums:

    This Is Spinal Tap

    Break Like The Wind

    Break Like The Wind Mark II

    Ultra Rare Tap, Volume 11

    Two-In-One

    Turn The Dial To 11

    None More Black

    It is a fictcious band, but they came out with a soundtrcak for the movie

    Their albums are This is Spinal Tap and Break Like the Wind (they acually have real songs that were made and these songs were acually good, which is why alot of people get the movie and band confused, cause people acually listen to the music of the ficticious band)

    The actors were Michael McKean, Christopher Guest and Harry Shearer but their characters names/names of the band members are David St, Hubbins, Nigel Tufnel and Derek Smalls

    they're actually a made-up band from the movie This Is Spinal Tap. That is a very funny movie. My favorite songs by them are Stonehenge and Sex Farm
