The geek hive mind was set to silly this weekend on Twitter, as the tag #starwarsbandnames ran amok. With many of the GeekDad writers contributing to the frivolity, we felt it important to record some of the results for our readers. We’re not giving specific credit on any of these because it’s so hard to tell what the original source was for many of them, though @johnhodgman, @badstronomer, and @xenijardin were amongst the popularizing perpetrators. Please feel free to add any not listed here in the comments!
