FUCK BUTTONS Great name :)
So simple, so easy to remember.
Steely Dan - named after a giant mechanical dildo, no less
I knew I was going to love them before I'd heard any of their songs.
it sounds awful, but still worth it.
Warhorse (i really, really wish i was in a band called Warhorse for some reason)
Electric Wizard 2nd
such serious wobbles... i'm gonna try Dopethrone soon, Dunwich is easily one of the greatest songs ever written.
But if you like "Wolf" you have a bloody lot of choice for word 2.

i'm not sure why i added that
Initially the band had two running ideas for band names: Nazipenis and Turbonegro. They were advised that a band named Nazipenis would never sell records, so they chose Turbonegro as an arguably more consumer-friendly choice. The band's name raised some eyebrows, and for that reason their first releases were sometimes branded TRBNGR, perhaps to preclude backlash against what some consider to be a racist name. However, the band's stated motivations are anti-racist, trying to change the attitude of racism and nationalism perceived as prevalent in parts of Scandinavia. Founding member Thomas Seltzer once said, "A turbonegro is a large, well-equipped, armed black male in a fast car, out for vengeance. We are his prophets"
is one of my favourites. My dad's favourite is Half Man Half Biscuit.
I'd have to disagree about Radiohead by the way. I think it's a bit of a naff name really.

Although with real band names, Turbonegro sounds the illest.
