I always thought the Dukes of Stratosphear was a pretty cool name.

Haven't got a real favourite but The Flamin' Groovies is a stone-cold classic. Also, Grand Funk Railroad - just the sound of the name seemed to capture their lumbering early music brilliantly. Oh, and then there was Pop Will Eat Itself - pretty clever.

Names I hate: Hootie & The Blowfish, Mr Mister, Fine Young Cannibals, Then Jericho, Johnny Hates Jazz, Curiosity Killed The Cat, The Good The Bad & The Queen - poncey names, lame bands.
