Paste Magazine
has named the 100 best band names of all time. Of course, a portion of them are from the '80s. They're not ranked 1 to 100. Rather, they're grouped into certain categories, like "Brilliantly Generic" (The Band) or "Celebrity Tribute" (John Cougar Concentration Camp).

Here are some '80s-centric groups they picked. Though I think we could certainly name a few dozen more that belong there. (Echo and the Bunnymen? Oingo Boingo?) Click here to see their full list.

PASTE'S BEST BAND NAMES FROM THE '80s:

  • Butthole Surfers
  • Camper Van Beethoven
  • The Clash
  • Dead Kennedys (photo above)
  • The Jesus and Mary Chain
  • Joy Division
  • Meat Puppets
  • Pixies
  • Public Enemy
  • Queen
  • The Replacements
  • The Smiths
