Trivia Tuesday: Name The Band

Welcome to the first Trivia Tuesday of 2011. In honor of today’s date, 1/11/11, all of the answers will feature the number one. Actually, that would likely make for a terrible quiz. Instead, listed below is the origin of ten popular band names. Your challenge is to name the bands.

1. Named after a low-budget 1964 horror film.

2. A palindrome acronym of the first names of the band.

3. A group of kinetic sculptures that makes music when wind blow through them.

4. Based on a character in the cult film “Barbarella.”

5. A nickname for unidentified flying objects during WWII.

6. Named after an annoying gym coach the band members had in high school.

7. Named after a George C. Scott movie from 1971.

8. Named after a Talking Heads song.

9. Named after a store in New Jersey (where the band is from).

10. Named after a pleasure device form the book “Naked Lunch.”

As always please leave your answers in the comments section below and do not use the internet for assistance. If the questions prove to be too difficult, I'll share some clues later.

This quiz is courtesy of the fine folks at Stump Trivia.

Nice job Nichole, Neena & Gilahi! Between the three of you, a perfect 10 for 10. I didn't even need to give clues.
