    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.
