Question of the Day: Blank and the Blanks

This week's 'FUV #NewDig is Hypnotic Eye the latest from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. As we rock out to it, we're thinking of all the other bands whose names follow the "Blank and the Blanks" structure. It's a tradition that started well before Bill Haley and the Comets and continues today with St. Paul and the Broken Bones. How many bands can we come up with that follow that naming template? List them in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Bill Haley and the Comets "(We're Gonna) Rock Around the Clock"

? and the Mysterians "96 Tears"

Fitz and the Tantrums "MoneyGrabber"

Noah and the Whale "L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N."

Steve Earle and the Dukes (and Duchesses) "Loves Gonna Blow My Way"
