The Sneaker Pimps

Wang Chung

Siouxsie and the Banshees

Smashing Pumpkins

Voice of the Beehive

Puddle of Mudd

All unusual sounding if you had to use them in a sentence, and then explained how they refer to a group of people playing music.

How about

"Sonic Death Monkey"

I know its not original but its cooler sounding than

"Billy Jive and the Uptown Five" and

"Tenacious D" and

Jack Black could be happy with any of them since he's been in bands with each of these names, although the first two were only in a movie.

two of my favorite baltimore bands from the 70's had really great names - Facedancer and Crack the Sky - anybody else remember them? Other good/weird names- My Morning jacket, Veruca Salt, toad the wet sproket, they might be giants and

herman's hermits.

oh and for carl - I read somewhere that the frontman for Hoobastank was asked where they got the name and he said it was what the H in Jesus H. Christ stood for. Who knew?

Some local band names of yore:

Mojo Clam

Mojo Nixon

Modern Fabric (Featuring Anso Nylon the 4th)

Rad

Big Bucket of F**k

Snotty Scotty and the Hankeys

The Dickies

Black Flag

Janes Addiction

Only the last two really went anywhere. I am sure there are more, but I cant think of them right now.

What's funny to me is that I never associated seven mary three with chips.

But now, peachy, I don't understand how I missed the connection.

It all makes perfect sense now.

I always thought it was referring to the seven deadly sins, Mary and the holy trinity:

The Father

The Son

The Holy Spirit

Learn something everyday . . . still.

David Gilmour of PF - another great, but unfortunately, he is UNDER RATED. Clapton may have made his guitar "sing", as they say, but Page made his WAIL :guitar:

Umm just a little pointer, i think I would rather singing than wailing in music. If everything was wailing, where would the songs you can go to sleep to be? Clapton's music is B-E-A-utiful

I've enjoyed reading this post, and have several comments. Pick out the ones that pertain to you.

1. I'm discovering that Catherine and I are are like minded on Clapton and his 'overratedness'. Quite pedestrian in his solo work. I also agree with you that Angus Young's work is very pleasing to my musical palate, and that's what music is all about.

2. Yes, I remember Facedancer (Red Shoes) and Crack the Sky (We came all the way down from an acid trip just to play for you)

3. I think "The Strokes" is a cool name for a band, but "The Stroke" is a horribly, horribly bad song.

4. Eddie Van Halen was top dog for a while, but he doesn't go exploring too much. His work today is fairly close to what it was in 1977. Ditto Ted Nugent

5. If I were going to have a band, I'd call it "Mental Floss"

That's all I have to say about that....
