A short list of a few of the strange and wonderful names I came across in Japan.
There are 10 candy names, and 10 band/musician names. Most of them are from 2010 and earlier, so the list might be a bit dated at this point. (This was originally posted as a jQuery experiment, and is reproduced here in a simpler form.)

Which is a band, and which is candy?
