Interesting Band Names

I was recently thinking about how some bands come about their names and how completely random they are w/o a backstory. Some make sense on their own if you put a small amount of thought into them but others just make you go WTF w/o a back story. I thought I'd throw a list together and see what was there and if anybody knows any of the stories behind some of the names. (I'll explain the ones I know)
