Dead Kennedys, I think that's probably my very favorite band name.

Pavement is a fucking awful, obsequious twat of a name, and that's regardless of whether I've spelt obsequious right.

Was that not Rage Against the Coffee Machine?

I'm not entirely sure y'know. I remember reading it and laughing, and in my head rage against the vending machine was the name.

fugazifan there has the translation right. i saw an interview with tori kudo (whose band maher shalal hash baz is) where he explained that he picked the phrase randomly from a bible. 'plunder speedeth - spoil hasteth' sounded very punk rock to him, apparently.

personally i think 'maher shalal hash baz' just has a nice ring to it. it's fun to say too.
