We’re frankly a little disappointed that the Ace of Cakes decided not to sport an emo haircut. 

Looks like these chefs were really “taking back sundae,” truly channeling their inner “death cab for cutlery” and definitely having an all-out “dashboard confectional.” All horrific puns aside, according to Twitter, Duff Goldman (Ace of Cakes), and Graham Elliot (Master Chef) both revealed that, in addition to providing culinary TV entertainment for the masses, the two chefs have something else in common: they were both apparently members of mid-‘90s emo bands. The proof is in the super-grainy, nostalgic pictures posted by the duo today. 

Duff Goldman’s band called was called Two Day Romance, while Graham Elliot’s band was called The Aura of Onassis. We couldn’t find any YouTube clips of either band, but chef Elliot has told the story in other interviews about his brief stint as an emo guitarist.

Now Elliot and Goldman want to join rock forces and form a new emo band. They’re taking name suggestions.
