Some years ago I drew a Dilbert comic in which Dilbert invented what he called tubular luggage. Several garage bands e-mailed to ask if they could use the name Tubular Luggage. Apparently “Tubular Luggage” just jumps out as an obvious name for a musical group.
I had the same experience yesterday while approving comments to this blog. I came across the phrase “fueled by hot dogs.” I can imagine that as a band name too.

I also like to imagine band names that play on popular culture. For example:
Lance’s Left One
Monica’s Breath Mint
Britney’s Daycare Center
Okay, it’s your turn.
