I'm very disappointed that this is the only band (that I know of) that has named itself after a Simpson reference. I'm still waiting for bands that call themselves Snowball II, the Smithers or Forbidden Donut.

Has no one mined the rich vein of band names that is the Hanna Barbera World of Super Adventure series? Birdman, Herculoids, etc.?

Had to look that up:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanna%E2%80%93Barbera%27s_World_of_Super_Adventure

and sure enough I have records by bands apparently named after two of those shows:

- The Fantastic Four (funky soul '70s combo)
- The Galaxy Trio ('90s surf revivalists)

The Fantastic Four? I can't imagine Marvel Comics let that stand.

I remember the Galaxy Trio. Good catch again!
