Tuesday Tunes: Out-of-this-world rock band names

Source: ashortwalktopluto.com

Listed below are band names (primarily from rock) that are out-of-this-world in nature. The most common terms are star (17), star (13), moon (13), sun (13), and space (7). Meanwhile Mars (8), Venus (6), Mercury (2), Jupiter (2), and Pluto (2) are the most common planets used in band names. Surprisingly, no bands with Saturn or Uranus in their names could be found. Come on – what hard rock band wouldn’t want to name their band “Ur Anus”, “Your Anus” or something similar to that? And how the heck is not a band with Saturn in its name? Really?

In addition, no bands were found with meteor, universe, light-year, nebula, eclipse, or black hole in their name either. As always, any additions, corrections, or suggestions are most welcome. Peace and rock on!
