37 Cherry St. Originally a funk band in the early 70s that had little success, they hit the charts later that decade when they rewrote an earlier song into a disco blockbuster.

After posting the song name here, I thought that Soultune, or The Soultunes would work...
Soultune is a contemporary jazz-hip hop group that creates songs of political and social commentary.
The Soultunes started as a 50's Doo Wop group that also had a few small hits with Motown in the 60's.

As I have been posting band names, I realize that they have to sing something... hence, Song Names that Aren't... Or Are They?
My first post was a song that I am positive Donkey Cart (the 60s version, not the Speed Metal version) would have sung--John and I Went to Boston.

In an earlier post, I suggested that Canada Likely would be a good name for a band, but I couldn't figure out when they might have played.
As I was coming to work, I heard a song by Fountains of Wayne, and it clicked--this is the sort of band that Canada Likely would be.
I also thought that this particular Fountains of Wayne song Hey Julie would be a good name for a band... they would have been playing around the same time as either the Lemonheads or 'Til Tuesday (with Aimee Mann)--completely different times and styles, but they would both work.

Super Potty Mouth... My son's birthday, and this came up... almost, but not quite, as good a name as Hellbilly (an actual Pittsburgh band).
Think Dinosaur Jr. and the like... Super Potty Mouth almost made it to the top... now, that's my band name.
