Muscial ability aside, what is the worst name you can think of for a famous pop-rock group.My 1# choice would be the 1910 Fruitgum Company. I bet only Vallejo Dave has heard of them.

Ha Ha Buggs. Yes, I've heard of 1910 Fruit Gum, and I also can't stand them.How about Dickey Doo and the Don'ts ? They did "Teardrops Will Fall" around 1960.And Black Oak Arkansas put out some weird stuff in the 70s. For a real treat, google their song-Jim Dandy-the live version.

Here's a new find: "The Gruesomes".Absolutely terrible name, but the music is actually awesome! Some Canadian rock band from the 80's that sound like a mix between 60's pop and catchy punk. They also had atrocious haircuts but their music was great!<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/b-ANk8G8ONs" frameborder="0"></iframe>

The Circle Jerks were a punk band that we were considering hiring in my college days!

I heard a song by 1910 Fruitgum Company the other day that wasn't "Yummy, Yummy". It wasn't too bad. Didn't get the name of it though.

Their most popular was 'Simon says'. I had an album of theirs at one time.
