Nine Inch Nails.

Oh, and I thought I'd add Smashing Pumpkins

Technically Alicat these three: Englebert Humperdink, Tiny Tim, and Meatloaf, are not bands, but individuals....

Just for your information: the name Hootie and the Blowfish comes from two guys the band members knew. "Hootie" was for someone with really bugged-out eyes like an owl and the "Blowfish" was someone with puffed out cheeks (think Dizzy Gillespie).

What ever happened to decent, familily oriented names...or at least band names that were not spelled phonetically.

Like, Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs, Gladys Knight and the Pips (she stole our name!!!), Mollie Hatchet, and others?

It gives me no end of amusement to look at current band names (I think rap is disqualified, since most rappers are individuals, not collective entities). I've gotta wonder how they get the spelling.....Scrabble on Acid, or spilled Alphabet Soup? Who knows?
