I never did, but found out anyway because of these bastards. :(

I seem to recall Steve Wright's zany afternoon crew would normally report whenever Bum Gravy had a gig on.

Forgot about Anal Cunt (such a shame they're shit) and Screeching Weasel.

Pissing Razors probably deserve honourable mention, too.

Surely, the Butthole Surfers deserve a mention.

Oh god, that reminds me of possibly the crudest and most offensive joke I know....
(for which I appologise in advance)

How do you get a gay man to fuck a woman?











Shit in her cunt....

Death Cab for Cutie stole their name from a Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band song, so they lose points for lack of originality.

Hmmm no ones mentioned Terminal Cheesecake yet (although now I'm not sure if they are a real band)...Optimal Wound Profile, always thought that was a good name...and of course the Uncle Viv's band namechecked by Mr Gimp, The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band (who eventually became the much more prosaic Bonzos).

Which came first the King Missile song "Cheesecake Truck" or the band "Cheesecae Truck"?

King Missile is a great name.

Everyone needs a little King Missile in their collection...even if it's just to differentiate between what's gay and what's not gay.

"Terminal Cheesecake" were indeed a band and my personal favourite band name.

"Goats don't shave" is another.
