The psychedelic era inspired some silly band names: Peanut Butter Conspiracy; Chocolate Watchband; Strawberry Alarm Clock; Electric Prunes; Balloon Farm; Bubble Puppy...Pretty colourful stuff, but kinda kooky. Then again, how much imagination did it take to come up with a name like 'Korn'?

There's a band I discovered back in my college radio days (mid-90s), when I was a jock for KSYM (San Antonio College). It was early in my tenure, and I was hosting a weekly Alternative show. The station was sent a batch of CDs and records, which I was asked to preview for objectionable content. I came across a record I knew we'd never be able to play. Heck, the band's name couldn't even be said on air. That said, I did once play their raucous version of the Bee Gees hit "Stayin' Alive." The band was named AN*L C*NT. I simply refered to the band by it's initials. I'm not sure how far a band plans to go with a name like that. I am remined of the Simpsons episode in which Homer recounts his days in a barber shop group called the Be-Sharps. In picking a name Homer stated that it must be a name that sounds funny at first, but becomes less funny each time you hear it. That's AN*L C*NT for sure.

John C. Harrison - you can't say it on the Amazon threads. But they sure as hell will sell it - go ahead and search that name. They sell about 10 of their albums.

The Babys was not a great name. Although they released some solid albums, some male teenagers weren't about to buy their stuff simply because of the name.
No matter John Waite has managed to make a living. Journey hired Johnathan Cain after The Babys opened for them on tour then Greg Rolie left Journey. Ricky Phillips, who took over bass duties when John Waite became the front man, now is in Styx.
