For years I have recommended the names "Lettuce" and "Bucket" as fantastic band names. Possibly the best I have ever come up with on my own. The only other one is "Looking for Paco," which would then be used on stage, at the beginning of the set, to say, "Hi, we're Looking for Paco," which works on multiple levels (and is better in Spanish).

However, much to my dismay, I have discovered that both Lettuce and Bucket are real bands. I enjoyed them much more as figments of my imagination.

I found Lettuce by reading McSweeney's Recommends, then googled Bucket. As best I can tell, there is no band called "Buscando a Paco" or "Looking for Paco," so I've got that going for me. ben
