    Ever see a band name but think it's the song title?

    It gets even more confusing if their song title seems like a band name.

    Here's an example:

    Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Young Adult Friction

    The Brady Bunch Lawnmower Massacre.

    Could be the title of a B grade schlock horror film too.

    Doesn't really count but Queensryche is actually named after one of their songs "Queen of the Reich", changing it from The Mob.

    The Rolling Stones... sounds like a song about a band "Like a Rolling Stone"... :)

    or does it sound like a band named after a song about a band?...

    Black Sabbath.

    It's fun when that song plays and my car stereo displays, for the song title, artist and album:

    Black Sabbath

  23. Lots of metal and post-rock bands with names like this.

    If These Trees Could Talk
    God Is An Astronaut
    This Will Destroy You
    Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky
    Bring Me The Horizon
    As I Lay Dying
    I Killed The Prom Queen
    etc.
     
  24. Of Monsters and Men (There are more words in the name of the band than in the title of any of their songs - except, I think, "I of the Storm")
