Bands that deserve a listen on the strength of their name alone...

I'll start with

    I always liked the name Porno for Pyros.
    And I have no idea what they sounded like but I once read about a band called the Whore Moans.

    I remember Lawnmower Deth! The first song I ever heard of theirs was "I Got The Clap and My Knob Fell Off" - says it all really. They were funny when I was 13, I even had the "Ooh Crikey... It's Lawnmower Deth" album on vinyl :?

    Please excuse the asterisks, I don't want to offend anyone!

    There's a London band called Selfish C*nt. I was working in the cd singles section of HMV when their first single was released - I had to print a label for the header board that said Selfish C*nt - "Britain is Sh*t / F*ck The Poor"

    It didn't sell particularly well...
