And at #1 on the Charts.....Kaiser Wilhelm II
Okay, am I missing something here? What's the deal with new bands being named after monarchs? Louis XIV and Franz Ferdinand - is a trend in the works? It's like all those bands in the late-70's, early-80's being named after continents and geographical locations: Asia, Europe, Chicago, Boston. What naming trend is next; the planets of the solar system?

Going by current pop naming standards, shouldn't that be: "The" Franz Ferdinand.

Actually, Chicago started in the late 60s as the "Chicago Transit Authority", so they weren't really named after a place but rather an organization. Their first album (which I once owned on 8-Track) was great, but when they shortened the name, they began the long slide into total suckage.
