Top 10 Most Misleading Band Names and Music Artist Stage NamesMisleading band names /stage names give you wrong expectations and impressions:
1) about their country of origin - a band called 'Birds of Tokyo' is not from Japan
2) about the type of music they play - a band called 'Miss May I' plays metalcore
3) about anything else - the band members of 'Barenaked Ladies' are not hot chicks, and so on.
