What band names do you like?

Asked by meiosis (6468points) January 21st, 2011

What unusual, weird, funny, profound, pretentious or tasteless band names do you like? You don’t have to like their music (or even have heard any of it) but for some reason you just like the name.

Inspired by @ucme’s question on song titles

Joe Walsh. Not a band, but he cracks me up.

Cobra Starship is a weird name for a band

My inner schoolboy likes to smirk at Raging Speedhorn

Just for a general chuckle, I had Hinder cranking yesterday and a 70ish woman stuck her head in my office to say she liked the music.

Years ago, there was a music group called the New Christy Minstrels.
I had a friend in the punk rock band The New Crusty Nostrils.

Of course, there is the Dead Kennedys

It just seems to represent what America stands for.

@meiosis – Yeah, I’ve always loved their name. They make pretty good music videos, too.

Hmmm . . . Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head comes to mind.

Also, 2010’s awful band names

Sodom. It’s one letter away from Sodomy!
I also like the band name “Vinterland” because it gives you a mental image of a snowy place somewhere in Scandinavia, where the main population mostly consists of vikings and topless (and busty) Nordic women
