Bands with names that lie

But if they lie then the title is actually completely accurate. And if they don't lie, then their title makes them liars, so it is still accurate.

They were neither handsome nor killers. At least as far as I know.

The Quarrymen- not a chance. How many of them ever hacked at granite ?

Kitchens of Distinction- nary a sparkling hob or decorative Welsh dresser amongst 'em.

Stone The Crows- no mineral related deaths of members of the corvine family have ever been attributed to the group.

Stone Temple Pilots. To my knowledge they have never spent too much time in stone temples and certainly never flew them around anywhere.

I'll have to protest this one. They're merely encouraging people to biblically execute corvids. Just like protest organisation Stop the War doesn't actually stop wars, merely suggesting others do so.

There's no evidence any of the members were adherents of a Judaic or Old Testament grouping which advanced the notion of stoning members of the crow family.

Similarly, Chicory Tip never suggested that only the tips of endives or chicory should be utilised or consumed.

If they were pirates, that would still be a lie, because the name implies that Pete isn't a pirate...

the original name of that band was 'Shirley Temple's Pussy.' hence, STP. they improvised once they got a record deal. it can be seen the quality of their music that their lead singer is fronting for stone temple roses. or is it guns and pilots?
