Bands named after places. Please help.

A friend and I are trying to come up with a list of bands that we know of that are named after actual places. This is what we have so far:

Alterbridge
Jimmy's Chicken Shack
Everything But The Girl (a wedding supply/planner store)
Marcy Playground
Linkin Park
Big Dismal
Jericho Road


Who else do you know of? PLEASE HELP!

Just to add my 2 cents:

Boston
America
Asia
Europe

(yes all real groups, just not from this century )

The 3 I thought of off the top of my head (Chicago, Boston, and Kansas) were already taken. So I went through my Media Player playlist and came up with these:
Styx (after the River Styx of Greek mythology)
Berlin
3 Doors Down (okay, not a specific place, but if you live on a street w/ 5 houses on a side or more, there's someone likely living 3 doors down)
and 2 other generic places:
The Outfield (a baseball dealy-whopper)
Oasis (lush place in desert)

well, there we go! it is a real place, not just any random place!
nice list, WW... would've mentioned Mannheim Steamroller, but I didn't think it was a place (other than the city of Mannheim, Germany)
