Joe Mathlete's Band Name Mashup Rodeo

The very amusing Joe Mathlete has a blog entry introducing a game where you have to make up hypothetical band names by combining two or more band names that overlap.

He starts off with a bunch of amusing examples, and then a bunch more amusing examples were suggested by others, including me. Here, assembled in one place for your convenience, are some of my suggestions. (I can't take full credit for all of them, because a few of them come from me tweaking someone else's suggestion.)

Taj MaHall and Oates
MatisyaHoobastank
You Say Party! We Say Dido!
Li'l Kim Mitchell
Fountains of Wayne Newton
Vince Neil Young M.C.
R.E.M.F. (best known for their hit "Everybody Hurts? Unbelievable!")
R. Kelly Clarkson
Aimee Manfred Mann
Yoko O-No Doubt
Talk Talking Heads
Weensryche
Genesister Sledge
The Grateful Dead Kennedys
Al Green Day
Iggy Pop Will Eat Itself
Lionel Richie Valens
Loverboy George
Al Green Jello Biafra
Electric Light Orchestral Manoeuvres in The Darkness
Ludacris Kristofferson
Mr. Mister Bungle

I then typed "Weensryche" into Google, to see if anyone else had previously thought of it, and I found something which I suppose shouldn't be a huge surprise: other people have previously played this game. Some of their suggestions (some of which coincidentally duplicated some of mine) can be found here and here.

One of them can be slightly lengthened.


Age of Electric Light Orchestral Manoeuvres in The Darkness.

I'm sure this can be lengthened even more -- all you need is a performer whose name ends in "age". I suppose Patti Page would work.

Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start
my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
