Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Cracked.com came up with their list of The 25 Most Ridiculous Band Names in Rock History!

With each entry is a slightly researched reason why the band named themselves as such and a bit of editorial as to why it sucks (and some, like Hoobastank suck on so many levels). Warning, the website is a bit slow/cranky, so if you find something particularly funny, feel free to cut and paste it below to discuss with the class. (And for the record, there's no way that !!! is worse than Limp Bizkit.)
