    I used to be something of a Def Lepard fan in High School and I remember reading that Joe Elliott, the mastermind of that name, used to doodle sketches of leopards with hearing aids and that's how they came up with the name. The way they misspelt it always makes me think of Led Zeppelin.

    Insanely stupid names: Godspeed you!Black emperor, Flowers from the man who shot your cousin (though I think that's just one guy, not a band), ...And they will know us by the trail of dead, She wants revenge, Between the buried and me

    though I love one long band name in my library "The Abominable Iron Sloth" they have a song about Paris Hilton where the only lyrics are "Run, slut, run" It's pure brilliance

    I like the name Porno for Pyros, their music too.
    death cab for cutie is the most obnoxious name ever.

    lol it is kind of an absurd mix of epic and moronic but they're a pretty awesome band, though you have to be in a certain kind of mood to listen to that type of thing. a friend of mine and his band opened for them on their UK tour and apparently they're total musical geniuses.

    and 'run, slut, run'

    ^ Oh, don't get me wrong about Godspeed you!Black emperor. I love their music. Just hate their name. I've been on an instrumental and electronica kick lately, Godspeed, Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai, Sigur Ros, Vangelis and a shitload of :wumpscut:. And Kraftwerk. I adore Kraftwerk.

    Back to weird and/or obnoxious band names, there is a band called Gay for Johnny Depp. I really don't know what to think of that one.

    i used to listen to a lot more so-called post rock. mogwai, tortoise, godspeed. i still revisit a lot of them though. kepler's also lovely.

    lol 'gay for johnny depp'. true of most straight males but too cutesy really, i expect they won't last.

    I think the name "Skinny Puppy" is awful...it's not just funny but it sickens me a little.

    I just googled the band to look for an image and I'm sorry I did. I won't post it here. What a bunch of sickos!

    obnoxious and unoriginal, they took it from a Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band song title

    Rainbow Butt monkeys turned into the rather pedestrian "Finger 11"

    Play more Skinny Puppy; they are a bit frightening, eh? They did a lovely live version of Hexonexxon complete with beheadings and what not...

    I agree Death Cab for Cutie is pretty stupid. Oh and I just remembered Butthole Surfers, didn't they have that song Popular?
    Nada Surf did Popular... BS did Pepper which was quite popular.
