What is the best band name ever?




I can’t remember all the titles that have been mentioned.

But to add a few to the list of band names not-quite-as-great-a-band-name-as-QUEEN; Canned Heat, Thin Lizzy (must’ve been mentioned above, considering the origins of that name), Rage Against The Machine…


The Human League. I also love Cabaret Voltaire, but I can’t imagine a better name than The Human League.

Works either way.



Boys’ Own.


We have a winner!

Let’s blame MTV, mmkay?


For everything.


David Meadows: “Prog is MTV’s fault”

David Meadows: “Prog is MTV’s fault”


The Fartz

Runners-up: The Slits, Bang Tango, Bad Brains and Crumbsuckers. I have others, but they’re too nasty for polite company.

‘Terasbetoni’ means '‘Reinforced Concrete’ in English.

Here is a taster:

PS ‘Voittomaton’ means ‘invincible’.
