    Personal pet peeve: I detest the very notion of naming a song after your band.

    Or vice-versa, though I suppose I’ll cut more slack for folks if the song name came first. Maybe.

    Nah, screw it, I detest ‘em both.

    My current band, and it happened by accident. I was writing lyrics for a song we were working on, and it just kind of happened that words started flowing which became a song with the name of the band as the focus. I wouldn't have set out to do so, but its now the song.

    "Art in America" by Art in America (from the album "Art in America"):

    I saw this on MTV back in the day, and I only remember it because it's not often you see a harpist jamming out in a rock band.
