So, it is nearly 2017 and we’ve had a ball over on the Acronym Game Thread 2 for a while. I think we can use a spruce up of the old noggin and try to do some lateral thinking and get those juices flowing.


Lateral thinking is solving problems through an indirect and creative approach, using reasoning that is not immediately obvious and involving ideas that may not be obtainable by using only traditional step-by-step logic. The term was coined in 1967 by Edward de Bono

Wikipedia

And hey, there is our first clue! Edward de (Bono) (as in the dude who is full of himself of U2 fame). In this game we are going use a famous person and a band name together (in whatever order you would like). There has to be a link between the two. Here, I will give you an example on how it works.

Minnie Pearl, from the Grand Ole Opry, you know, the hat with the tag, comedian? Always wears a dress. Immortalized by the Dead Milkmen in their song, Punk Rock Girl you know, “We can dress like Minnie Pearl, eat fudge banana swirl, just you and me punk rock girl…

And the band, Pearl Jam, you know, those Seattle guys in ripped jeans, flannel shirts, and Even Flow fame. You know who they are.

So you combine them together

Minnie Pearl + Pearl Jam now becomes…

Minnie (Pearl) Jam

You can do band names, but they have to be in threes. And make me laugh!
Like this: Backstreet (Boys) II (Men) Without Hats.

Sometimes they do not hit you at first! So, one a day will the self-imposed limit to give others a chance to reply!

Can you come up with a good lateral thinking one?

There is one I will post tomorrow that makes me smile each time I think of it!

When they hit you when you least expect them are the best. Mod Def was like that.

Hope everybody enjoys! Check back in for a laugh or two!

Only using two bands is too easy. That is why the OP says "three" band names if you are going to link band names (it requires a little more effort).

The famous person + band name is a tough one. And the funniest when they just randomly pop up!
