I've always thought Steepytime Gorilla Museum was a pretty good name. It's weird and easy to remember. It's the only reason I decided (and remembered) to listen to them.

Yeah the name actually drew me to them as well. I thought it was gonna be some lame comedy/rock type act.

Very different from what I expected but they really are something.
