I Shot The Serif:
Artists and bands with names that sound like they could be fonts/ typefaces

what a lazy attempt at humor (is that even what they* are aiming for?)

first off, half of those would never be considered as names for fonts.  trent reznor?  big audio dynamite?  atari teenage riot?  please.

second, of the other half that actually sound like they could be fonts - it's because they ALREADY ARE a font:
- Bauhaus
- Rammstein
- Berlin
- Dion
- Blancmange
- Pulp (technically a category/family of fonts)
- Hole
- Rockwell
- Orbital
- Bastille
- Laibach
etc...

what's next?  "list of band that sound like a place: boston, alabama, chicago, berlin, phoenix, beirut, nazareth, ... - look at me!"

*they = the person(s) who created this list, not smackie.

My anecdotal experience is that font nazi's are much more fun to be around than grammar nazi's.
