My favourite one that's been posted is "The Noble Postman", which I just love.
My band is called Soweto, which I think is a pretty neat name (it's a township in South Africa, with really bad poverty, if you don't know). But it contains the words "so wet" so it makes us sound a bit, well, wet. Also, a really obscure band exists with the same name (albeit with capital letters throughout). We still use the name though.
I also like the names:
The War Against Terrorism, TWAT
CIA, Criminals In Action (taken from a political rap song featuring Zack de la Rocha)
Pete Turnip Townshend (Pete "Turnip" Townshend was a peer of historic agriculturist Jethro Tull, after whom the famous prog rock band are named)

I've spent a good portion of my life coming up with band names.

My most practical list includes...

Ebola Hounds (A sort of sub punk lo fi band) (I think this is my most realistic name to be used.)

Shaven Pandas (A jug band... long story.)

The Houdini Machine

Jono and the Sexy Bitches (I just like it because I got to headline it. My buddy Corey came up with this one)

Oliver and the Twists

Yoga Emerges Triumphant

Hate Follows Lust

Foreign Relations

Mr. Mitochondria

I think Die Melody, Die! would be a kickass name. Also, if we're refencing song names, Loved Ones would be a pretty cool name as well. I really can't be bothered to make a list like some of you because I am le tired.

That's an actual band.  They sound kinda like the stuff from O Brother, Where Art Thou?

I lol'd at a few of the band names listed here.  Grr itsabeer is a winner.

The only one I can come up with that's any good is "The Letter Six", with their first album being "[self-titled album]".  That, or however you'd spell Ah-Shits in german.  Then you could go "AHH, SHITS" and then claim you were just talking about a German band.

Names based on musical terms
Rubato Legato
Minor Third and the Dominant Sevenths
8va (this one would be good if you ran everything through a pitch shifter like a Whammy pedal and raised it by one octave)
MMMF (People hitting rocks with sledge hammers, like Einsturzende Neubauten or however you spell it)

Or following the example of Cities Under Nocturnal Threat (CUNT):
People of Everday Imagination and Size (PENIS)
Down In Country Kingdoms (DICK)
Three Inventive Teenage Sluts (TITS)
Breaking All the Laws of Lennox Sherriff's Department Even Eating People (BALLS DEEP) My personal favourite
Fevered Undulations of Captain Karate (Take a guess...)

I started a dance rock band called The Jagular Drop, which my cousin and I had been kicking around as a name for a band, so I was happy to actually use it.  Bonus points to anyone who can cite the reference I made with that name.

http://www.purevolume.com/thejagulardrop

other band names friends and I have come up with, derived from other sources, and/or used...

Hey, That's My Bike!  (the name of my first highschool band)
Downhill Racers
Abel's Island
The Suicide Lights
Yukon Ho!
The Qinks
Little League
Explode! (the name of my post-rock band)
Puddle Stompers
King Of Red Lions

...most of them are based off of other books, songs, movies, etc...

Bonus points to anyone who guesses any of the sources!

Jezaniah

and so on. List is endless, people. Stepping outside the Good Book for a second, I always thought Monkeybird would be a great name for a band.

Okay, so I'm a little cocky and a little over-prolific. What?

Also, I happen to think that St. Vincent and the Grenadines would be a great punk band name.
