Cool Band Name

The Radium Girls:
The Radium Girls were female factory workers who contracted radiation poisoning from painting watch dials with glow-in-the-dark paint at the United States Radium factory in Orange, New Jersey around 1917. The women, who had been told the paint was harmless, ingested deadly amounts of radium by licking their paintbrushes to sharpen them; some also painted their fingernails and teeth with the glowing substance.

Five of the women challenged their employer in a case that established the right of individual workers who contract occupational diseases to sue their employers.

Yeah, sure, but I bet teeth painted with radium paint were totally wicked looking...

Bring on the glow-job.

I put it to you that The Radium Suppositories is an even better band name.

Better than The Jude and Marshall Law Folk-Punk Fusion Collective?

No.
