Apparently my earlier post on The Beat was misunderstood by at least 50% of my audience. I don't dislike those names because they are short; I dislike them because they are bland and show a lack of imagination. (See also The Sounds, whose song "Tony the Beat" I really like, actually.) The Clash is a little bit better. It brings to mind a culture clash as well as being onomatopoetic, and it sums up the angry young raw energy that the Clash represents.
