Johnny Depp, Russell Crowe, Keanu Reeves, Oh My! Ten Film Star Music Projects That are Way Worse Than Ryan Gosling's Dead Man's Bones
If you've been poking around lately on those music blogs they have on the interwebs, chances are you've heard a thing or two about the new ANTI- signing, Dead Man's Bones, which also happens to be the band of Half Nelson/The Notebook/bunch of other stuff movie star, Ryan Gosling. Now, the music of Dead Man's Bones doesn't move me in any particular way, good or bad; it's just kind of there. "Gothic folk," as they say, complete with a kinda-creepy children's choir. However, it does actually sound like music that would be released on ANTI-. Which is to say, depending on how cynical your personal viewpoint is, these dudes either a) understand what indie rock in this day and age sounds like and have effectively co-opted that sound, or b) just sincerely like a lot of modern-day independent music, and thusly have been influenced by it.

The point is, this band could've been a lot worse. In fact, below are 10 film star music projects that are, indeed, way worse. If you need evidence, a video argument is made under each. Enjoy:
