Just this past weekend, power celeb couple Kanye West
and Kim Kardashian announced that they are set to play on Family Feud
coming up this week and we could not be more stoked to see them on the show. Kim released a video on Twitter announcing their intention to compete on the game show saying that they'll win... Will they? You'll just have to wait to find out. In the meantime, we've compiled a list of the best artist couples that would kick butt on Family Feud
. Nothing is better than famous musicians screaming useless trivia facts at each other on public TV. Let's get to it.
This doo-wop indie pop duo has one of the most interesting and unique backstories of any band. The band consists of married couple Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore who, in order to gain musical inspiration for their 1950s-esque bubblegum pop, took not one but two boat tours around the Eastern Seaboard and the Sea of Cortez. We can only imagine the kind of fight these two sailors would put up against Steve Harvey - they'd definitely win any of the questions about knots or compasses or whatever else you have know when you own a boat. Plus their sheer aesthetic makes them #1. Let's be real.
2. Yo La Tengo
Comprised of the married couple Kaplan and Georgia Hubley, the genreless indie rock band has seen a number of band members cycle through their ranks since they formed in 1984. This would probably make them quick on their feet - those lightning rounds are really only for the best and brightest. Also this band was obsessed with Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground, so if Steve Harvey pulled out any questions about him, the Hubley's would have it in the bag.
3. John Lennon and Yoko Ono
Ah, John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Family Feud
has been around since 1976, four years before Lennon was killed, so conceivably the two could've been on the show back in their day. I'm not entirely sure what 1976 Family Feud
would've looked like but there was definitely a lot less Steve Harvey and a lot more commercials for undriveable Ford Elites and Extra Thick glue-on sideburns.
4. Jay Z and Beyonce
I'm just going to say right off the bat, to get the obvious out of the way, that if these two were playing against each other, Beyonce would crush Jay Z so hard that he would come out of the show in literal tears. Because that's what it's like to compete against Queen Bey. She makes grown men cry on public television. #noragrets.
5. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
I don't think the Teigens and the Legends could actually ever compete against each other, for obvious reasons, like, Chrissy and John are literally so in love that just looking at their Twitter exchanges can make you second-guess your decision to delete your Tinder in hopes of swiping right on your soulmate (sidenote: you're never gonna swipe right on the partner of your dreams, but if you do please let us know how it is done). If they did play together as a team against a different family though, they'd probably win just out of sheerly frustrating love with each other. The other family would probably just walk off halfway through out of pure annoyance. No one can ever rival their love for each other. Ever.
6. Sean Penn and Madonna
Sean and Madonna were together in 1986 and though their love affair was short and tumultuous, you can bet they would've done the most
on a reality TV game show. I doubt the host would've been able to reign in the insane passion of a couple like Sean and Madonna, who were prone to violent outbursts and not one but two instances of attempted divorce before it finally happened. I doubt Steve Harvey would let any of those kinds of shenanigans go on these days on the show. It's supposed to be family friendly, dammit.
Here's to hoping Kim and Kanye keep Family Feud
family friendly! Unfortunately we're pretty sure this will not be the case but who knows, maybe they'll be trying to set the stage for little North West. But probably not.
