"The" bands have been played out for so long that they've actually reached the very opposite point where I just expect this kind of unoriginality which makes it pretty normal. It's mostly the lack of punctuation that drives me crazy about the phrase names though ("Jump, Little Children" was OK!).

Okay, new band name:

"The Band That Uses a Phrase For a Name"

Too meta? no?

I share the opinion of Jimmy Rabbit in The Commitments: All the great bands are The's. Yes, I know that punctuation is bad, but I can't look at "Thes". Anyway, it makes alphabetizing my 45s a pain in the ass, but it's true.
