The latest light-hearted Twitter trend inspired by the upcoming election was #Electionbands, which trended in Ireland yesterday.
Twitter users took on the challenge of taking the name of a popular band and altering it to reference politics.

The efforts ranged from clever digs at politics like 'REMpty promises' to simply merging parties with band names, like 'Fianna Fail Out Boy'.
Check out the best (in our opinion) of the tweets below.
