    I've never heard a song by them, but I've seen them listed in emails for upcoming concerts and damn near bought a ticket just based on their name alone: We Were Promised Jetpacks.

    I can recall a couple of club bands back at the turn of the century that had some great names. One was Sweep the Leg Johnny; the other was The Fucking Champs. 

    I don’t know if either one of them is still active, but their names always gave me a chuckle when looking through what was coming to town in the Boston Phoenix or Village Voice

    Yeah, it certainly came to a nasty (glossy) end.

    Chuck Pierce is still over at Esquire, even has his own blog now, so that's good.

    Most of the ones I thought of have been mentioned.

    Ive never seen them but a band out of Edmonton is called “Scenic Route to Alaska” and they got that inspiration from a highway sign about 2 miles west of my hometown. I knew it the moment I saw the name. Have to check them out.

    I remember Zane Lowe referred to them as “Get Cake. Eat Cake. Nice.” on his MTV2 Gonzo show once (a long time ago!)

    A buddy of mine in high school thought the best name for a band was “Acid Reign” and the first album would be called “Greatest Hits”.
    Still makes me laugh.

    I remember Acid Reign! They were a thrash metal band in the UK in the late 80s (my dodgy metal years :rofl:

    So the fucker stole the name and then came up with a catchy album title lol.  IT makes sense now that I think about it

    Just came across these guys (no pun intended). Apparently they disbanded about 10 years ago though

    lol, the band named it after the place because they wouldn't let them play there or they hated the place.  It might be a mix of the two, I forget.
