4. Black Sabbath
The name "Polka Tulk Blues Band" doesn't exactly strike fear in the hearts of men, but it would be kind of a hilarious name if the Sabs had decided to keep it.
2. The Bee Gees
At least R.E.M. and Pink Floyd kind of rocked, so their incongruous original names weren't quite as bad as the Bee Gees' original name of the Rattlesnakes. Because when I think "I Started a Joke," I think about a fucking rattlesnake.
