Being the cool hipsters that we are at Huffington Post UK Comedy, we have of course spent the past few weeks tapping our feet along to the new album by Band Of Horses, Mirage Rock.

It's terribly good, but we couldn't help noticing: they don't really sound like horses. In fact, could 'Band Of Horses' be the most misleading band name of all time?

Possibly. Possibly not. In an effort to find out, we've compiled a slideshow of 20 other bands who, quite frankly, don't do what it says on their respective tins (note to selves: 'Their Respective Tins' would be a good band name). Take a look at who made the cut - and leave your suggestions for who we left out in the comments below...

  • The Eagles

    None of them are eagles. If only they were, then they could maybe have escaped the Hotel California via an open window.

  • Barenaked Ladies

    Disappointingly, none of them are ladies, nor naked.

  • 10,000 Maniacs

    Not only are they not maniacs, but there are only five of them.

  • The Doors

    Definitely people, not doors.

  • Pixies

    Couldn't be less pixie-like if they tried.

  • The Arctic Monkeys

    Do monkeys even <em>live</em> in the Arctic? No! Misleading on so many levels.

  • The Animals

    Sadly human.

  • The Police

    None of them were members of the constabulary.

  • Small Faces

    All of them had normal-sized faces.

  • Red Hot Chilli Peppers

    Definitely human, not capiscums.

  • T.Rex

    Disappointingly people, not a carnivorous dinosaur.

  • Butthole Surfers

    To be fair, they <em>might</em> be. But we're assuming not.

  • Super Furry Animals

    They're pretty super, admittedly. But furry? And animals? No.

  • The Shadows

    Not merely shadows, but also three-dimensional human beings.

  • The Black Eyed Peas


  • Stray Cats

    Although to be fair, actual stray cats may have sounded better.

  • Martha And The Muffins

    Martha, yes. Muffins? No. There was only one other person in the band, and his name was Mark.

  • The Smashing Pumpkins

    They weren't pumpkins - smashing or otherwise - nor did they ever, to our knowledge, go around smashing pumpkins. So, disappointing on two levels.

  • The Cranberries

    Sadly not small, edible fruit. But then they sounded all the better for that.

  • A Flock Of Seagulls

    Although to be fair, the lead singer's hairstyle did have two wings.

Correction: An earlier version of this slideshow included incorrect images for the Small Faces and Red Hot Chili Peppers. These have since been corrected.
