Not only does this fictional band lack real world significance, it even lacks much significance within the Buffy universe. This band was never an important part of any storyline on Buffy, as evidenced by the small number of episode where it appears and the fact that some of its members were never named.

NOTE for anyone just glancing at the article that 3 of the sources (fully half at this date) DO NOT MENTION THE SUBJECT OF THE ARTICLE AT ALL, but are required sourcing to attempt to address WP:BLP issues related to the incident that inspired the band's name. -- The Red Pen of Doom 17:28, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Keep WP:BEFORE fail. While the article as nominated failed to mention the critical commentary on the band, it exists: 1, 2, 3. I wouldn't mind seeing it merged into Buffyverse, but the fact is that Buffy studies means that there are multiple, independent, RS'es for almost any significant Buffyverse aspect, DabM included.

So, three sources that mention the band in context of Oz being in it and don't say anything about the band itself is reason to keep? I don't think so. Got any sources that actually say anything about the band? D O N D E groovily Talk to me 22:13, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
There are more; feel free to search for them yourself. Of course the band is mentioned in the context of Oz... He would be the only series credited case member who was a part of it. Again, not objecting to a merger, but the band meets the GNG. Jclemens (talk) 00:07, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
it is the burden of the person claiming that viable sources of encyclopedic content exist to actually provide them. -- The Red Pen of Doom 03:26, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
Jclemens did exactly that above. Phil Bridger (talk) 15:33, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
Not really. What Jclemens did was to provide links to places where the name "Dingoes ate my baby" appeared. But as Dondegroovily stated, that was all that was at the end of the links ("Dingoes ate my baby" was a fictional band in the show Buffy), not any viable sources of encyclopedic content / non trivial coverage. And so claim "well, there are others out there. feel free to search yourself" is incomplete and does not meet WP:BURDEN -- The Red Pen of Doom 17:37, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
The first of Jclemens' sources has a section of several pages about the band, starting at p. 123, and much of chapter 18 of the second source is about it. This is far more than trivial coverage. Phil Bridger (talk) 12:13, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
In both cases, the sections say quite a bit about music in Buffy, but very little about Dingoes specifically. To keep, we need sources that specifically address Dingoes. D O N D E groovily Talk to me 03:01, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
Rename/Merge to Music in Buffy the Vampire Slayer? -- The Red Pen of Doom 11:32, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
I think there's an article there, but it would probably be better to start it from scratch. Perhaps a redirect is then in order so the history is available to the creator of that article. D O N D E groovily Talk to me 12:08, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
