  • Best band names of all-time

    We have an entertaining thread going now of the worst band names of all-time, which naturally got me thinking about the best band names of all-time.

    A band's name is so important to their success, as is the brand name for any consumer product. Metallica, in my opinion, chose the perfect name for the band and I think just the name really helped boost their success.

    Anyway, here is a sampling of some of my favorite band names:

    Blue Oyster Cult
    Captain Beyond
    Deep Purple
    Guns N' Roses
    Iron Maiden
    Judas Priest
    Led Zeppelin
    Mars Volta
    Molly Hatchet
    Moody Blues
    Ozric Tentacles
    Pain of Salvation
    Pearl Jam
    Reverend Bizarre

                    Megadeth
                    Metallica
                    Anthrax
                    Thin Lizzy (Actually was supposed to be "Tin Lizzie" named after a comic book robot, but Phil's accent was so thick the guy that booked them the first time misspelled it and the band stuck with it.)
                    Led Zeppelin (Jimmy thought that spelling Lead Zeppelin would make people think that it's all about him (Lead as in leader), so he decided to spell it that way.)
                    Van Halen (Originally Mammoth, but Roth insisted that the brother's last name sound better, I myself could of gone either way, but I agree.)

                    That's all I can think of right now other than the ones listed.
