Funny no-one can explain why this name is the best I can't either it just is. - TD17
The way you say it is enough, probably one of the coolest names!

how cant this be in the top ten3 Comments
It's a great name because it's clever in the way that it defines both their sound and their stage presence. One word name that captured and defined one of the greatest bands ever. That is a perfect name.
Queen is a great name. It shines. You never hear such a clever name any more. Love Queen!
It's flamboyant, that's what it is... If you don't like it, the power of Queen will make you like it. Because that's just how the world rolls.
Queen is one of the best bands in this world!
Queen is the best ever band in Rock, Pop, Funk, Opera, Heavy Metal, Love songs and just everything.
They are amazing and always will be even though I'm not a huge fan of their new stuff
They are very unique in there style.RONNIE RADKE screams, rapp, voice kicks ass in modern day rock
they're crunchy on the outside hot on the inside
They Are The Best. They Simply Rock.
It's not my favourite band, but their name is AWESOME
This is why we need Eddie Van Halen on guitar
I'm 10 and all I listen to is Van Halen.
First of all. Eddie Van Halen is the best guitarist of all time. second of all. Van Halen is the best name ever made up. no one can't say anything about that because its true.
Love the band, and the name, kicks ass the name, go EDDIE VAN HALE3 Comments
In my opinion the worst band with the best name
I like this band a lot
It just sounds good coming out of the mouth. It instantly brings to mind excellent rock n roll. They are the best. - vadnj0
Best band in the world dude! Zacky vengeance and synyster gates best guitarists in the world even god rocks to their guitars bro! Rad!
It was a really cool idea for them to base their name and even several of their songs off of the Bible. They're an awesome band!
When I saw this list, I thought: Avenged Sevenfold should be Number 1, I cliked and I was like: OHH YEAAHH
def. my favorite band name - a7xfan935 Comments
This name is like a 4-word poem! Just saying it and thinking about it just feels beautiful and powerful.
Probably the best band to appear in the 2000s, they can change their style up so much and its perfect, very influential as well they should be number 1
Their music style is very various, like no others...
Beautiful, soft and hard at the same time.

Dude. x-Japan got nothing on this. This was from a book. Escatsy three tales of chemical romance. Who could pull a band name from that? Chemical Romance is an awesome name.
I've always had a thing for this band name, it's super cool and has a great meaning behind it.
Another great band
Sorry but X Japan's name is WAAAY better than My Chemical Romance. You can't even compare them. Their name (My Chemical Romance) is not even that great. Being from a book doesn't make it that more special either. X Japan's name represents their country and it's a badass name.
True pioneers; success came from passion, originality & a ton of talent...
Heart is the best name for a band, 1#!
ANN AND NANCY WILSON ARE TWO GREAT LADIES OF ROCK WHO ARE THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND THIS GREAT BAND.
Come on their name looks so great written
The Killers have a cool brand of music that speaks to teens problems. - Homestarmy
Amazing band badass name let's be honest
Bullet For My Valentine :fantastic band and great name, I think he must to be the number 1 in the world
I this band. One of my favorites! Just a really cool name.
guns n roses = guns (power) roses (love) I love the power of their music - ronluna
Black Veil Brides represent the nuns that Andy saw throughout his child hood. He was very religious. It's a good name because it actually means something to the band. If it means nothing to them, what's the point?
The best band in the world, they have great music.
Yow, those bands on top are so ugly. This band is so maintream and bad-ass. BLACK VEIL BRIDES ROCK!
It basically is a nickname for the days where everybody just sits around and smokes pot. (Which is what Green Day did in their early years, they still do, but moderatly. ) Their songs are great! (What other drummer makes up songs about Billie Joe's mom chucking brocoli across the kitchen? ) Plus, Billie's sexy!
Move on from American Idiot! They released 3 albums in 1 year, and Billie Joe wrote 65 songs in 2 months! How awesome is that!
A great name from a great day to protect the planet from pollutions and left over garbage.
Since the first album my favorites
They have an awesome name and they make amazing music. - sp1d3rman
YES! The best name goes to L'arc! It means rainbow, such a beautiful thing from nature that's as magical as their music. Best name ever (along with X Japan)
You can't say "music" without "muse. " - InsertNameHere
A muse is something that captivates and inspires you. Music is my muse and that's why I find this name beautiful.
Muses, that are the goddesses that are touching Matt while he's writing his songs. - darksky
from aincent greek mythology, this name is simple and rocks!
AC/DC stands for alternating current direct current. They got the name from a sewing machine. The band was electric and intense, the name says it all.
So disaponited they didnt get any higher
I don't know hat it means. It may stand for "Awesome Cat, Dangerous Car. - MegaToolica
I don't know why this isn't in number one1 Comment
They also have one of the greatest and most recognizable logos in rock history.
Not only one of the best names, but one of the best groups. They've influence a ton of bands. - FearlessFreep
And to think they used to call themselves "Sick Man of Europe. "
Best name, best everything!1 Comment
Adam stated that the band's name stands for a sense of urgency with the question being whether someone could change something in one's life if one had only three days to make a change.
The band's original name was Groundswell.
this is just an awesome name....a reference to destroyng your musical equpiment - Okami
This is a Rap metal band, and they are totally awesome m/
Number 33? This belongs at #1 in every ranking or list ever!
Best Album ever with Siamese Dream. Unbelievably creative and remarkably apropos name. If you played that Album next to an inert Pumpkin in a farmer's field the giant fruit would explode from the sound and the beauty.
With Smashing's double meaning as either a verb or an adjective (whether or not you use 'The'), this is the best band name of one of the 90's best bands. - Zahveed
Woohoo! I voted them into top ten (and their like, number 5 or 6 or something!) Greatest band ever!!!!!!!!1 Comment
It's a pretty name.
German great name of a great Japanese rock band - ronluna
The band is cool but... The name means newspaper...
This is an aweosme name it goes with the band and their music perfectly. GAZEROCK IS NOT DEAD!
The Mega-Beatles, Pink Floyd... You can't help but just think about what that name means. It's so mysterious, so passionate, so artistic yet so Powerful.
Must have the best name...most successful band of all time.
love the name. love the band. love the music. - koolkat
I love this band! They used a line from a song to get the name, but they added the! Which created the emo edgy vibe. Then, later on they removed the! As a sign of maturity and progression.
I honestly do not think that coming up with the name "jonas brothers' requires much thinking.
They're a good band, and they have, in my opinion, the best name, but I wish a better band had this name,,,, - BulletStreet
I really wish that a good band could have used this name. but on this list it's about the names.2 Comments
I don't know if this name has a special meaning, but a letter and a number aren't all that great.
An epic name that suits their music. The band's name derived from a poem their guitarist wrote called "Victims of the Down". The band changed it to "System of a Down" to make it appeal to fans.
Aerosmith is a really cool name for a band - LimoZeen
It just the greatest band ever in the history of the world. By far, very far. - Tito
Wut. Are you kidding me? This name is really easy to think of. That's like making a band with my sister and call ourselves "________ Twins". (My surname begins with 'T' so it actually sounds catchy. T Twins...). Are they even rock...?
some may have trouble understanding the name, but most musicians should
Very very very awesome name, only too bad it's spelled without the "the"...
Great name, sounds cool, ts intriguing, I also likethat its mysterious but actually means nothing. Just love it, and them.
There the best rock band of all time - Justin B. Ber
I love this name because you don't know whether they mean a tool from the tool box, or tool like YOU STUPID TOOL!
They've got their name from real foo fighters. Strange UFO-like lights that aircraft pilots in world war II have reported seeing in the sky.
It's cool 'cause it sounds like Kung Fu.
