Check out Bookride for a list of rock band names smurched from literature.

Fiction of the fantastic is well-represented, with names inspired by Philip K. Dick, Iain Banks, Michael Moorcock, Clark Ashton Smith, John Wyndham, and many others.

I'll be heshwozzled: someone remembers the Tygers of Pan Tang. I had to explain the name to a metalhead friend of mine, because he just thought it was a neat band name. (I also have lots and lots of fun with Steely Dan fans who have no idea of the reference, but considering how sick I am of Steely Dan on the radio, this is a bit more vindictive.)
