Bands where the members all take the same name

I'm writing something on the group Troubled Hubble, each member uses the last name Hubble. Can anyone give me some other examples of bands that do this. There are the Ramones and The Donnas, of course, but I'm blanking on any others.

Can anyone help?

The only other one that I can think of is Ween (Dean and Gene).

The Traveling Wilburys all have (fake) names, with the last name being Wilbury.

re: The Danielsen Famile

Pretty cool group...they're from around here, I think (Central PA area). I saw them with Scientific a few years back, and it was in the top floor of a big barn loft. Great show!

Anyway, back to the topic. The group Kings of Leon has four members...three brothers and a cousin, so they all have the same last name (Followill). BTW, 'Leon' is the dad of the three brothers. Does that count?

Okay, I guess you're not talking about real families are you?

I can't believe no one has mentioned the greatest Canadian band of all time: The Killer Dwarfs!

Band members were:
Darrell Dwarf
Mike Dwarf
Russ Dwarf
Bad Ronbo Dwarf

The Killer Dwarfs, arguably the greatest Canadian band of all time. (Although they hate the Canada qualifier)

Unless I'm missing something from earlier pressings of their albums that I don't have, the only member that called himself "Queer" was Joe Queer. (and even later on, he changed it to "Joe King")

Amazing pop/punk band.

You are correct. I knew of Joe Queer and was thinking all of them did the name thing since they're fans of the Ramones.
