What's the story behind Korn?

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

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.

I think Theory of a Deadman sounds cool, its just too bad that the band itself is a Nickelback knockoff. (Why is it that everything chad kroger lays his hand on winds up sounding like him)

Audioslave is not suckage!

I like Soundgarden, Sublime, Cream, and of course Parliament Funkadelic. Any band that has the word funkadelic in their name is awesome.
