Flosser Merinda has sent in this educational and hilarious chart regarding heavy metal band names. It reminds me of a Ricky Gervais podcast where they attempted to come up with the Most Ultimate Metal Name ... Ever. Suggestions included "Brain Hammer" and "Tumor Fish," but the eventual winner was "Deathlehem," a band that would only play their concept albums on tour during Christmas. Brilliant.
