Haha! Love this. How do bands arrive at these names? The mind boggles. Great stuff! - Britgirl

That's a pretty weird name. Well, I can give you plenty of those like "Crappy the Clown and the Punch Drunk Monkies", "Gee That's A Large Beetle I Wonder If It's Poisonous" or "A box of fish with tarter sauce". At least there is no lack of art in this field. - Kiteretsunu

Styx is also the goddess of the River Styx. - Metal_Treasure
