    Default Genuine Band Names that Tickled Your Fancy?

    A few favorites, some clever, some somewhat gross, some from who-knows-where but make one pause for thought. There will likely be hundreds. Just a few at a time, please!

    Cereal Killers
    The Bloody Stools
    All White Jury

    Florida bands from my youth who all had enormous talent, but never made it nationally:

    The Present
    Painted Faces
    Power
    Crosscut Saw
    Split Ends (traditional blues band not to be confused with Split Enz)
    Rosewater Blue

    And the highly successful:

    I always admired The The for their exquisite choice of name.

    We've Got A Fuzzbox And We're Gonna Use It. Sadly abbreviated to simply Fuzzbox by the time they had their brief chart career.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
