    There was an alternative/rock band around Memphis several years ago called The 5 Who Killed Elvis. #They later morphed into The 5 Who Framed OJ. #I think they played the college fraternity circuit around the area.

    The Mother Folkers were (are?) a real women-only folk group with some cool music. I din't make it up.

    The Bad Livers is a great name for a band. I also like The Smokey Grass Boys. Didn't know it was Dawg's band in the '60s until a group of us wanted to name our jam band and that was a suggestion we Googled. I wanted to change it to Smokey Grass Ramblers -- maybe Willie will want to join, just for fun.

    There was a band called The Smokey Grass Boys...had Bill Keith on banjo & Grisman on mando.
    And a 90's Berkeley BG band made up of all women that had a good name, The All Girl Boys.

    We have a local blugrass band "Stuck in Reverse"

    My daughter named a scamble band she played in "The Chicken Pickers," I played in "One Brick Short of a Load". . .and we were (our banjo player went AWOL before we took the stage).

    With one modification - it would need to be The Smoking Grass Ramblers.

    My old bands:

    Morning Glory (for the seeds and what they were supposed to do)
    The Backyard Acoustic Jam (for what we were)
    Heatscore (same guys, same reason, but electric and in bars)
    Move The Cat (Joke: for the best seat in the house...)
    One Eye Open (There are MANY reasons, use your imagination)

    Names we didn't use:
    The Robbie McMaster Band (No complaints with the name, just didn't get off the ground)
    Four On The Floor (Our bass playing autophile wanted this)
    Hell's Half Acre (Someone else got it first)
    The Chronics (someone else again)

    Band names I like:
    The Tragically Hip (A great band in Canada, the rest of the world misses out!)
    The Guess Who
    The Band
    Any band that names themselves after where there came from: Boston, Chicago Transit Authority, Kansas, New York Dolls, London Quireboys, The Dubliners, Toronto, Georgia Satellites. Has anyone used the Florida Keys yet? That would be a good one.

    Great name for a band out of Niagara Falls: Honeymoon Suite (used)

    There was a 3-pc band here in N. Little Rock and the combined weight of the three guys was well over 1000lbs. Called themselves The Fat Boy Boogy Band. They ROCKED!!!

    I was in a country-rock band called Incahoots. thought that was pretty cool.

    Two others I like is Beverly Hills & The Hollywood Rockers
    and Betty Buick and The Roadmasters.

    In Minneapolis a few years back there was a pretty well known all female Jazz band called "Women Who Cook". A little bit later there came another local male band called "Men Who Eat Out"......don't know if they ever shared a bill.

    I was in a band called "Billy and the roosters" and I wanted to name a band "Clinton's cigar"
    Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
