* In ''Literature/TrickyBusiness'' (also by DaveBarry), an untalented rock band with the uninspired name Arrival is desperately searching for a new name (one rejected name: "We May Suck, But We Play Better Than You Dance") when they play a gig at a joint whose rowdy patrons beat up their frontman Johnny for not playing country music. The mention of "contusions" (bruises) in the medical report of Johnny's injuries gives the band the idea of changing their name to Johnny and the Contusions, though the story behind this name doesn't bear repetition.

Added DiffLines:

* Youtuber ''LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}}'' often yells incomprehensible things during his horror videos. Regulary, he claims that the arrangement of words would make great band names and declares that someone may use it, but has to pay him for the useage.
--> '''Markiplier:''' He died?! I barely even got started! This is bull. Murder in a minute. "Murder in a minute" would be a good band name, god dammit, I keep coming up with great band names.
