MTftSB: Good band name or bad band name?

A thread in which we collectively decide on whether a band name is good or bad. Are there any good band names or all they secretly as dumb as shit?

This isn’t about a band’s musical legacy, cultural impact or the personal records of any of the members, just whether you think the name is good or not.

really dislike bands that use years from the past to make them seem like they are referencing some kind of culturally important event that is made up

jon bon jovial lads


In fairness to them, they needed to change their name from Death From Above for legal reasons, but they were already established so they stuck their birth year on the end.

Still shit, mind
