What Band's Name Do You Like?

I have always loved the name Smashing Pumpkins. And Red Hot Chili Peppers. What names do you like? Also do you know the meanings behind the names? I know that Foo Fighters was some secret group that looked for evidence for aliens! I aslo like the name Feedback and The Hype which were U2's name before that was their name. . I do like U2 though.

Because it's hilarious:

My dad had a band called The Raw Hotdog Jam Band, but they didn't sing or play any instruments, they just designed an album cover and called themselves that....and probably ate raw hotdogs or something...I really dunno, I think my dad was a stoner
