A radio show recently had a contest to make the funniest/clever band name out of two (or more) existing musical acts, you may combine single artists and bands but it must be a music act....example.

Moody Blues, Simply Red and Flo Rida would make:

Moody Red Flo

(OK, I know that was bad, you should do better then!)

MAD Magazine did something like this several years back.  Their idea was combining certain groups for summer tours... Some of their suggestions I remember:

Tom Petty & Johnny Cash: Petty Cash
The Police & the Cars: The Police Cars

And here are some of my own:

Meat Loaf & the Specials: The Meatloaf Specials
Bad Company & Bad English: Bad English Company
Modern English & Art Garfunkel: Modern Art
ZZ Top & the Spinners: The Top Spinners
Alice Cooper & Al Kooper: Alice Kooper

What is more amusing for me is picturing with my mind's ear how these collaborations/bands would sound.

I thought this thread died too quickly, I want to laugh some more. So I'll try again. (gonna base these like Darrin's MAD combinations, while imagining the odd music it would create)

Grandfunk Railroad/Train : Railroad Train

The Starland Vocal Band/Insane Clown Posse : The Starland Vocal Clown Posse

The Spin Doctors/Dr. Dre : Spin Dr. Dre's

Arrested Development/The Police : Arrested Police

All American Rejects/Europe or Asia : All American Europe or All American Asia

No Doubt/Yes : No Yes

Live/The Grateful Dead : Live Dead
