There have been three bands named Stranger Than Fiction, all of them fairly obscure: 1) Elliott Smith's high school band. They never really released anything officially, but some of the music is available (if you can find it in digital form). 2) A British post-punk band who released one single in 1980: "Losing You". 3) An American jangle pop/folk rock band active in Texas in the early 1990s. 4) A Melodic Thrash / Death / Black Metal band from Germany.
