Mnemonic for remembering muscle bands and their components

I found it very difficult during my usmle prep to remember the components of various bands in a muscle fiber. Even after multiple reads and memorization I still could not recall it. All that changed when I came up with a simple mnemonic .

                  I act at 5am hence my sleepiness

I = I band
act = actin
at = A band
5 am =  actin + myosin
hence = H zone
my sleepiness =  myosin
