    I had a band called Pussy Riot, but thought it'd be a little controversial

    Then there's bands who have stuck with names like Diarrhea Planet and Owl City.

    The highlight of the whole thing with Putin and Pussy Riot was the opportunity to hear national, reputable news organizations say 'Pussy Riot' live on air.

    Here are two more examples of bad original names of rock bands: For a short time in 1987, the group that Kurt Cobain would rename Nirvana was known as Fecal Matter. (Insert "What a waste!" joke here.)

    And two young brothers formed a band called the Broken Combs. Then it became Trojan Rubber Company, a name that would have invited a trademark infringement lawsuit. Then it became Genesis. Then, when they learned there was already a group called Genesis, it became Mammoth. Finally the group decided to just go by the brothers' last name: Van Halen.
