Weekend or Weekend Nachos?

Band-naming conventions have gotten a little out of hand. There was the "wolf" epidemic of 2005 (Wolf Parade, Wolf Eyes) and the short-lived "crystal" wave of 2008 (Crystal Stilts, Crystal Castles), while the "[animal] + [some twee thing]" equation is, to this day, slowly killing me.
