I don't believe I've seen of these threads but don't get mad at me if one does exist. Anyway, what are your favorite band names? It could be creative, funny, direct,meaningful, or just plain awesome. Feel free to post an example if they're a lesser known band. 
 
Mine would have to be Sharks! On Fire!. Yes that is how it's spelled. Here's they're latest single, along with the super awesome band logo. 
 
    

     
 
 


The band is from Vancouver, BC.

For example, check out this song (along with some fan made video):

I saw them live only about a month ago. They couldn't hold a candle to The Devil Wears Prada, who were also playing, though.

Mm. I much preferred this before they changed their name to something generic like, "The Devil," or at least, this was what they had changed their MySpace to. I think Blabbermouth reported on it. I hoped it was a joke. 
 
I'll put in my vote for Gammacide. I'm listening to Victims Of Science right now. It is truly a grand ol' slab of old school thrash metal.
