  12. I like the sound of The Cosmic Puppets for a band.

  13. My dad liked listening to Steppenwolf when he was a teen, I think. Great choices!

  14. The Cosmic Puppets is awesome. Love Valhalla Rising too. And now I need to go listen to some Manhattan Transfer. 🙂

  15. Naked Lunch is a perfect band name. I would be so interested in how they came up with the name.

  16. I love all of these! I think the Soft Machine should play hard rock.

  17. Manhattan Transfer IS the name of a group. Is it also the name of a book? Same with Steppenwolf. Hmmm

  18. I agree that this was a fun Top Ten Tuesday! Great post! My favorite is The Cosmic Puppets! Funny that some of your choices actually ARE band names. Great minds must think alike.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  19. The Cosmic Puppets would be an amazing band name. Love your list.

  20. Great list! I could see Twelve Angry Men being like a 21 pilot band ?

  21. Rumble Fish should so be a band. 🙂

    The Cosmic Puppets is such a 90’s indie band name! Fantastic list.

  23. Great choices! Love the sound of Twelve Angry Men and The Cosmic Puppets.

  24. A confederacy of dunces *dies laughing* Oh, a band *needs* to have that name!!!!

  25. Lovely titles. You’re probably too young to remember “Steppenwolf” and “Manhattan Transfer”. Have a listen to both of them, great groups.

    “Valhalla Rising” is my favourite band name. Sounds heavy metal-ly.

      Yes, I think I am. I genuinely had no idea they were already band names!

      And you’re welcome.

  26. A couple of these are already bands so it looks like you’ve got a good eye for titles! I love all of these but would seriously be interested in a band called Rumble Fish.

  27. I’d absolutely listen to Rumble Fish.

  28. Great list! Naked Lunch makes me think of a ’90s rock band, haha.

  29. Great list! Twelve Angry Men is such a good band name.
