'80s Band Names. The good, the bad and the downright ugly...

Aztec Camera is an odd band name but for me it kind of works. Some of their contemporaries weren't so fortunate.

Bananarama - Never mind the horrid music. That is a really, really bad name.
Haysi Fantayzee - Nice look. Great sound! Terrific name. Why didn't this catch on?
Josef K - A very good band with a very good name. Not sure about the look of that bloke at the back.
A Flock of Seagulls - Words fail me
Prefab Sprout - A truly great group. The jury is still out about the name.
Bow Wow Wow - Knowing Malcolm McLaren there may be some slightly distasteful reference here somewhere.
Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - You what? Like the band a lot nevertheless.
Wang Chung - You think their name and look is bad. Just wait until you hear their music.
Fine Young Cannibals - Excellent name. Nice pout!
Kajagoogoo - This is really the pits in every respect imaginable.
