Tuesday Tunes: Best “sounding” band names

To me, some of the best and most memorable band names of all time have been derived from terms used in music, sound production, or communication. Even a name as simple as The Beatles incorporates an intrinsic aspect of music — the beat. Below is a partial list, which is by no means comprehensive. These just happen to be ones I am aware of or particularly like. Enjoy!
