The KLF as pop stars

The Timelords/KLF, "Doctorin' the Tardis," their 1988 British number one single:

"Doctorin' the Tardis" is predominantly a mash-up of the Doctor Who theme music and Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll (Part Two)", with sparse vocals inspired by The Daleks and Harry Enfield's "Loadsamoney" character. Also credited on the record was "Ford Timelord", Cauty's 1968 Ford Galaxie American police car (claimed to have been used in the film Superman IV filmed in the UK). Drummond and Cauty declared that the car had spoken to them, giving its name as Ford Timelord, and advising the duo to become "The Timelords".

KLF, with Tammy Wynette, "Justified and Ancient" (#1 in the U.S., #2 in the U.K.:
