Band name!

You know how it is, you're in the pub and you catch some random phrase that somebody says and you shout out, 'Band name!' Yeah, that. I ended up making a list of them. I've forgotten literally dozens more than this. To supplement these amazing bands that will never be I've also listed my least and most favourite band names of all time, plus my very favourite band name of all time ever, never to be beaten, amen etc.
