What's the story behind Korn?

Edit: I think Alice In Chains is a pretty bad name. Just reminds me of bondage.

I always liked The Who and Led Zeppelin, the names just rock.

As for worst: I think it has allready been established that Hoobstank sucks

I've always thought that Iron Maiden is a pretty sweet band name. Especially considering what an Iron Maiden is... yeeeaaahhh, that rocks.
For worst... hmm... possibly Styx? That name is just... bleh.

Best is probably Broken Social Scene. The worst is probably the Who or The Guess Who. They're just really stupid names.
