I'd add a couple of variations on Run DMC. Punctuation shouldn't be necessary.

punctuation is never observed on all Jetpunk quizzes. RunDMC should work as well as "Run?-D.M!C"

Clearly this also means "didn't realize half the band died in a plane crash." I looked it up and was surprised that more of them lived than died.

Of the core members, only Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines died in the plane crash. The crash also killed Gaines sister Cassie, who was a backup singer. All the others have died in the years (38, as of the date of this comment) since then.

Good variety. I'm not going to say "what about ???" but a few other ideas would be Jerry Garcia, Clarence Clemons, Phil Everly, Rob Pilatus, Lou Reed/Sterling Morrison, Paul Hester, Michael Hutchence, Cass Elliot...

Layne Staley (Alice in Chains), Ronnie James Dio (Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio), Randy Rhoads (Ozzy Osbourne), Tom Petty (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), Gidget Gein (Marilyn Manson), Michael Jackson (better known as a solo artist, but since he was in the Jackson 5 it counts), Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan (Avenged Sevenfold), Bradley Nowell (Sublime), the list goes on...

I'm afraid to ask how they came up with that name. So many are just sexual euphemisms.
