Ten Bands That Could Double as Motorcycle Gangs

What’s in a name? In the case of the bands below, it’s a combination of threatening and rocking. Please enjoy a few of our favorite groups that sound like motorcycle gangs, each with a visual aid to boot:

The Killers
Charged, perhaps, with killing the radio-rock competition?

Surfer Blood
Maybe a sister gang to the crew in Surf Nazis Must Die?

The champs of gin-soaked jukebox jams, Poison would be a party-ready motorcycle gang. Andrew W.K. would approve.

Death Cab for Cutie
It doesn’t get much less threatening than Ben Gibbard, but the music is great and the name is unmerciful.

The Black Lips
Led by ruthless bassist Jarred Swilley, of course.
