Crossed Crowns:

""London Lipstick Factory" strikes me as funny (they became The Cure)."

Maybe that's what Robert Smith owned before going into music.
Good stuff though.

Hey, are we thinking about the same BIG or Big Business. I tried to find a BIG with no luck. Reason I'm asking is the reference to reggae.
BTW M. Ary: Matisyahu does sound interesting to dig more into for me. Visually he looks like "Cat Stevens" went reggae.

When I was a teen in the late 60's, there were two regional bands advertised on am radio that I thought had funny names:

Bird and the Worms
Spider and The Crabs

Even if you don't like the Dolls, admit that it's a great band name and indicative of the members and music they produced.

The Who, I also feel, is a great band name in that it fits the sort of music they make. As does Hole and their music (Not in a bad way.) Any other bands that came up with just -the- perfect name for themselves?

I think The Mothers of Invention is a good descriptor.

@mac:

I should noticed that. My thoughts were that The Melvins is basically Big Business/Melvins combo ATT. Check out Big Business and you'll see part of my confusion. As much as I like The Melvins, Big Business on their own are an acquired taste for my "tastes". I have seen them twice though because they usually play first before The Melvins do their set. Might see them again this summer if I can drag my butt up to Charlotte.

I always thought that was true about The Mothers also. Believe it or not I got my 10 years of age start in listening to The Mothers from my cousins collection and liking it.

mac ... enjoy Live at Stubb's. Matisyahu is a complete different bag, like coffee he takes some getting used to.

The Temple City Kazoo Orchestra. Their name pretty much says it all. Check out their immortal "Kazooed On Classics" EP. You'll be glad you did.

How about Dred Zeppelin? The Reggae Zeppelin cover band with Tort Elvis the singer, (the extra heavy 70's Elvis in full white cape).

Interesting to note about Fall Out Boy...yeah, they got their name from The Simpsons...but when the band came about, the Simpsons brass thought that the BAND may have already had the name and were worried about repercussions from them!

Ultimate Spinach, Electric Prunes (great band, stupid name), Spooky Tooth (another great band, stupid name), Electric Flag, Counting Crows, Stone the Crows, Cat Mother and the All-night Newsboys.

Your list is great E. Joy, I remember most of them. Surprised that they haven't been noticed here.

Here are a couple of wild names:
Hard-drinkin' Housewives
The Hostile Amish
Inflatable Dates

Lots of good ones -- I think Ultimate Spinach is the funniest out of that bunch...

How about Atomic Rooster?

Anyone hear of the "Sick F%^&ks"
Could be pretty descriptive depending on your tastes.

Actual name.

Were the S----y Beatles a real band? They were one of the acts playing the punk club in the movie "Up In Smoke" with Cheech and Chong.

Yeah, I just found them on You Tube. Not sure if it's the one from Up In Smoke. They don't look old enough
