Another season has gone by and, yet again, we've failed to achieve our collective dream of becoming a punk-rock band.
We have, however, come up with an excellent assortment of rockin' band names. Each week, as we're chasing and recording stories for the show, we coin informal titles for each item.
At the beginning of the season, we realized that a lot of these titles sound like band names. We posted that list and asked you to identify the real band among the names. Someone did – The Spores.
So, for the second time this season, we've come up with a list of the best science-inspired band names. And this time, we don’t know if there’s a real one among them:
The Spitting Cobras
The Sink Holes
Hyenas on Top
The Komodo Dragons
