The members gather together on October 3, 2008 and decide to form a band called Band of Brothers, even getting their own Audi convertible and group manager. They decide that the first track tribute will be to The Beatles. In the band positions, Jay as John Lennon (vocals), Kangin as Paul McCartney (bass), Heechul as Ringo Starr (drums), and Jungmo as George Harrison (guitar). They are given the trademark Beatles attire to wear and the favourite foods to eat, and also their very own groupie. They film their first music video "I Wanna Hold Your Hand".
Today's artist is Queen, with Heechul as Freddie Mercury (vocals), Jay as John Deacon (bass), Kangin as Roger Taylor (drums), and Jungmo as Brian May (guitar). While choosing the song for their next music video, they tell their own personal stories from the song titles (Love of My Life, We Are The Champions, We Will Rock You). In the end, "We Will Rock You" is chosen for the MV.
Tribute to 들국화, a popular Korean band in the 80s. To decide on lunch, the members have a karaoke contest. Jungmo sings "One" by Eve, Heechul sings "Girls' Generation" by Girls' Generation, Jay sings "Desperado" by The Eagles, while Kangin sings a trot song. Surprisingly, everyone scores 100 marks except Jay. After many failed attempts calling their celebrity friends to help, they meet up with band Super Kid to do a live performance of "Haeng Jin".
Tribute to Bon Jovi.
