I disagree with this. A name of a band will ultimately be defined by what the band is. I don't think names like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins, The Beatles or Led Zeppelin were chosen because the bands said "we have to take ourselves seriously." They obviously did take themselves seriously enough to be the mega bands they became but chose names that reflected their own creative urges and were a bit different or strange.
Having said that and knowing you don't want to use cliche words like "the", how about Buck the Slobbering Donkey?
