In honor of Sleep, here are ten other bands with (nearly) Google-defying names

Page 2 of 2

10. Tennis First result on Google: US Open results The way to find them: Search for "Tennis band" Even if you search for "tennis band," the first link you'll find is a item we wrote, then one the A.V. Club did and finally, the third result is their MySpace page. Who has time to look all the way to the third result? 9. +/- First result on Google: Your search - +/- did not match any documents The way to find them: Search for "plus minus band" Seriously? You're going to name your band +/-? Okay, granted, it doesn't take that much brain matter to figure out how to search for this group, but still. 8. Pee Pee First result on Google: YouTube video titled Pee-Pee The way to find them: Search for "Pee pee band" This one's not particularly hard to find if you attach "band" to the end. If you forget, however, prepare yourself for a slew of weird YouTube videos. 7. Fuck First result on Google: Fuck - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The way to find them: Search for "fuck band Oakland" This one's sort of complicated in that you need to know the band was from Oakland. On the other hand, who the hell cares about the band Fuck anymore anyway? 6. Fell First result on Google: Fell (comics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The way to find them: Search for "Fell band Denver" Again, you need to know which city the band is from -- you can get away with searching for just "Fell, band" but the results are still a bit whacky.
