Rating: List Type:


It's a suggestion for a holy day of witchcraft. After this year nothing was similar. It seems that the spell was very strong!


If Hawaii is a paradise, and Humberto Gessinger and his friends did, it's obvious that their songs would be "fresh water and shade".


If the death of Franz Ferdinand triggered the first World War, his 'back' will, for sure, shake the structures.

It's the "Genesis" and NOTHING else matters.

Average listal rating (10 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 0


The Hurricane "KISS", known for it's make-up's, and their huge, well elaborated and even exaggerated concerts, has shown that a "kiss" can be much more than romantic and slush.



Bombing the world with a mixture of hip-hop, jazz and soul, "Massive Attack" showed why they came into the world.

Average listal rating (306 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 0


"Never sigh for better world, it`s already composed, played and told. Every thought the music I write, everything a wish for the night".
Average listal rating (1213 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 0


Nirvana, besides the fact of being target of all plukers, represents the pure freedom. And flying high, they achieved what many guys can't, charisma and good music.
Average listal rating (702 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 0


An "Oasis" in the desert. Do you want something better?

As precursor of rock as we know it today, it 's obvious the reason the name fit perfectly with reality. If the band is the queen, for sure they're princes of rock.





Hot and spicy. The right recipe to make a crowd fall in love. I need guys like these in here.


Average listal rating (444 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 0


I don't know much about them, but I really liked the name. And it seems that they came to confront their similar, and show their difference.




A small plant with a distinctive fruit. As the band.

Do I really need to say? They're "The Cure"!
Average listal rating (626 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 0


Do I really need to say? 'The Killers' kill me.
Average listal rating (380 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0


The name is a stroke of genius.
Average listal rating (944 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 0
U2


I feel chills everytime I see the kiss in With or Without You. U2?


Average listal rating (98 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0



Named as the lebanese city, sounds like an european band, but came from the States. Can it be more global and, yet, unique?

Average listal rating (139 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 0


A cup of funk, two spoons of ska, a pinch of rockabilly, pop as you like, filled with jazz and rap, and country to decorate. The basic recipe of the CAKE music.

Average listal rating (406 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0


After Darlin' be criticized as a "bunch of Daft Punk," the new 'stupids' in the world of music decided to take a critical new way, electronic music.


The name is so non-sense that every time you ask them, they give rise to a different explanation.

Average listal rating (76 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 0


I owe, I don't pay, and I refuse while I can. It's so much fun in portuguese. In fact, the name "Devo" comes "from their concept of 'de-evolution' - the idea that instead of evolving, mankind has actually regressed, as evidenced by the dysfunction and herd mentality of American society."



With his exaggerated way of criticizing everybody, I'm almost sure death to them was conspiracy of Robocop gay!


In this band, none of the seven members have these names. Why they then? The name Belle & Sebastian is inspired by Belle et Sébastien, a children's book by French writer Cécile Aubry.
Average listal rating (59 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 0


And I thought that only in Brazil had this story to mourn the sorrows singing. But it is much worse. This name, despite the controversy, was created because the love born in Montreal broke the heart of Kevin Barnes. So tacky. But with the voice of the singer I believe only if a relationship with a lumberjack Of Montreal.

Average listal rating (578 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0


Vedder swears it's a tribute to the grandmother and jelly for her husband. I suspect that is only because he was "very crazy" with the jelly.

Average listal rating (57 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 0


As Mystique (x-men), the band changed it's name and members. I don't need to say why they call "The Mutants"

Average listal rating (108 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0


The name means power plant, it's easy to understand why his music is electronic.
Average listal rating (974 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 0


Keith Moon of the Who said that the sound of them was heavy as a lead Zeppelin! If it's true, I don't know, but I will spread the story.
Average listal rating (692 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0


The name "Foo Fighters" taken from the World War II term "Foo Fighter", used to refer to unidentified flying objects. Feeeear!!!



Based on other works and to make a tribute album to the "Project Tango", they achieved success. But no creativity.




One day someone asked Paul McCartney if he was jealous of any music and he said that, if it could be, The Beatles would have written 'God Only Knows'. Mick Jagger was talking in the U.S., that the rival of the Stones weren't The Beatles, but The Beach Boys. Good Guys!

They faced the Olympian Gods and Zeus. They deserve to be here.



They're the Casanova of music


Like Gui said: Legião Urbana look very good on this list.

- What's the name of this movie?
- 7 years, bitch!
Average listal rating (146 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 0


The band name is a portmanteau of Jam session and "iroquai", based on the Iroquois, a Native American tribe. Native American tribe name is so bizarre



I really like to know that "Bordello" refers to a brothel or a "gentleman's club". So different!
Average listal rating (143 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 0


I liked the sound of the name, but then I discovered that the name came from an Englishman who has established several agricultural machines in the 18th century, I gave up good names associated with unusual things!


OMG, no one knows the relationship between these two guys. I bet they're friends with benefits, or worse. Exciting!


I liked the name, but this crazy thing of honouring people, movies and everything sucks.
Average listal rating (104 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 0


Use me and abuse me.


The official announcement of the band's first show was: "The Western Club presents shamefully Paralamas do Sucesso. Rock." I don't know why, because to me they're the only 'Splashguard' of success."



Despite the name, Eagles of Death Metal is not a death metal band. So they cheat everyone. Very shrewd this name!


I don't have an explanation, description or joke for this band. But Miguel likes this name, and I trust him



Because a good name is the first step for fame.

Thanks Juh e Miguel.
