Onomatology: band names are silly.

First: pretty much ALL band names (even the ones I like) are stupid, with the possible exception of 'The Band' (which is a crappy name for a band), but even leaving aside the obviously awful Hoobastank type ones, it is fun to note the actual dictionary definitions of band names. Nearly all are, um, uncannily appropriate. A few:

The Eagles; note the curved beaks

  • Rush: To do something very quickly

  • Rod Stewart: an inexcusably terrible old man
