If there's any one question most bands tend to dislike it's how they got their band name. A band will most likely answer with, "Well, this one night we were drunk..." or something similarly dissatisfying and anti-climatic, which is I avoid the question during interviews.
While listening to emo pioneer Cap'n Jazz's completely encompassing Analphabetapolothology, it occurred to me that two groups of budding musicians lifted their names from track titles: We are Scientists and Scary Kids Scaring Kids.
Then I realized there are many bands who have taken this route to naming, including many from the Northwest:
Some of these bands seemed to be inspired beyond just the band name and show influences to their naming bands, while other don't. What do you think -- do most of these bands show influences of the song from whence their names came?
What other bands can you think up to join this list?
