Best/Worst Band Name Ever???

MSN had a feature on some of the worst band names ever the other day. Here's the list:

http://music.msn.com/music/worstband...00018&GT1=6230

I'd have to go with Limp Bizkit for worst band name. But that got me thinking, what is the best band name of all time?

You may laught, but I'm kind of a fan of Guns n Roses. Something so rock n roll about that.

Whatdya think - on both worst and best band names??

Not sure about the best RnR name... although I lean toward an ambiguous two-character band name consisting of a single letter and a single number....

As for worst, I'm reaching waaaaay back for this one: Mott the Hoople. Dudes - WTF?!?!?!?!?!?

...I like that one . And I like the story behind Crowded House's name, too-that's definitely a good name (Split Enz was a cool one, too, if for no other reason than the fact that I found out that there's some box set or something of theirs that has a bunch of B-sides and stuff on it, and that's entitled "Rear Enz" ).

I'm listening to this band right now, so that makes me think of this-the Boomtown Rats had an interesting story behind their name, too-something about the nickname given to the people who came to Oklahoma during the Depression or something along that line, it's from a novel written about those people-rather interesting that an Irish band took a name that described Oklahomans.

As far as worst names-Limp Bizkit...the band name doesn't bother me nearly as much as the title of that one CD of theirs, that one about the chocolate starfish and the hot dog flavored water or something-seriously, just the thought of that being an actual meal or something makes me gag. And this one isn't necessarily a bad name, but it's an odd one nonetheless: the Butthole Surfers. That just projects so many disturbing images...

Bowling for Soup, Smash Mouth, Chumbawamba, Blind Melon, Deep Blue Something are the some of the worst, they're all trying to hard to be creative.

Sunny Day Real Estate, Led Zeppelin, Planes Mistaken for Stars, Death Cab for Cutie, Pink Floyd, The Gloria Record, The Juliana Theory, Kings of Convenience, Rilo Kiley, Jets to Brazil are some of my favorites
