Question: How important are Band names?

So this is it; I was chatting earlier this evening to my good friend Steve and discussing the importance of band names. How important is the name of a band?

My thoughts are that band names are only important when you are hearing about the band for the first time. After the jokes are put aside, the name means little more than a referencing tool. Look, for example at the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. If you want to talk about terrible names, there's one. But because they are famous, the name means very little.

Those are my thoughts, briefly. What are yours? Comment below.
