The Best Band Name Figgie is one of our favorites.  It recognizes a band created in the past year whose name is just downright awesome in every way – funny, clever, cool, memorable and interesting.  A band name that the minute you hear it makes you a fan without even hearing a note, which in the case of Figment is even more important since…well you know…

    If I may be so bold, I would like to suggest Rastapharaohs as a write-in candidate as well.

    Definitely some great nominees. Of all of them though, I just have to hand it to Taxine Fontaine and the Park Avenue Sluts
