Ben Folds is in town tonight to play a double bill with the Violent Femmes at Surly Brewing Festival Field and it reminded us of something...

In 2017 we did a super fun Coffee Break about band names that aren't actually descriptive of the band. So for example, "The Tallest Man On Earth" is not actually the tallest man on Earth. The band of Montreal is actually from Athens, Georgia. No one in The Donnas is named Donna. And Ben Folds Five was technically a 3-person operation.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what bands do you want to hear whose band name is a lie?
