The best bands that are named after genitalia criss-cross the music world with offerings from music genres like indie rock, classic rock, and even a little hip-hop.

Russian band Pussy Riot, however, makes the list.

This votable list of band names is your chance to choose the best pleasure organ related artist or band. Is a bit of Limp Bizkit your thing? Are you feeling turned on by Third Eye Blind? Do you want to get your hands on some Whitesnake? Whether you're a fan of a good band with a funny genitalia name or just a fan of genitalia names and weird bands, this list of famous bands with sexy names is the place to be for all the most titillating band names.
