You heard about the request for Pet Shop Boys to change their name to the Rescue Shelter Boys, right? Well the Boys aren't the only group we think could use an animal-friendly makeover. The following groups could too:
--- Meat Puppets: Maybe as the Tofu Puppets, they can make a grungy comeback.
--- Meat Loaf: Meatloaf, do us and your colon a favor and change your name to Lentil Loaf.
--- Deerhunter: Wouldn't you say it's about time for this acclaimed indie band to change their name to Deerhugger?
--- The Stray Cats: The Stray Cats are known for helping pioneer the rockabilly scene, but they would be known for helping spread a positive message with a new name, The Spayed Cats.
Musicradar.com, keen to help PETA with our campaigns, has its own list suggestions too—some of which even overlap with ours! Hmm, which is better: "Real Big Sea Kittens" or "Reel Big Fish In A Suitably Large Tank With Adequate Room To Swim"? Decisions, decisions.
So which bands do you want to see change their names?
