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

Truly #1, if I may say so. - PositronWildhawk

What the...

This IS a truly strange band name. Just so random and...well..weird! - Britgirl

6 All-American Rejects
7 Styx

No, they didn't misspell "sticks" - it's the river Styx from the Greek mythology - a river that separates the world of the living from the world of the dead. Styx it is said winds around Hades (hell or the underworld are other names) nine times. Its name comes from the Greek word 'stugein' which means hate, Styx, the river of hate.
Styx is also the goddess of the River Styx. - Metal_Treasure
