The quest is over. I have found the greatest band name in the history of band names.
Oh yeah, and they happen to sound quite a bit like Death Cab For Cutie, which is good, too.

Meet: Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.

The most important thing about Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin (though the band itself does not always follow this rule) is that whenever you refer to Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, you have to refer to them by their full name: Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. There are no abbreviations or acronyms allowed.
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin are from Springfield, Missouri and began making music in one of the member's garage in 2002. They're still around today and have released quite a few full length albums, including "The High Country," which was released in March 2015.
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin are absolutely good enough to justify their ridiculous, perfect name. They're better than that, actually. In lots of ways, it's perfect indie-pop-ish. Twangy guitars, great lyrics about feelings, simple, underlying, consistent drums and oft-present backup vocals. Above, check out two songs off the new album: "Madeline," which screams Death Cab, and "Trevor Forever," which has some more garage-rock elements to it.
I am so incredibly excited to have discovered these guys. But, my proclamation is a proclamation, not fact. So, I ask:

Is Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin the best band name of all time?

I think @hikaymm, Vingle's resident Death Cab fan girl, will have to be the judge of this...
@jeff4122 I'm from Pittsburgh, of course I'm ready to talk about Mr. Rodgers!! (filmed & produced here, after all!) I can't tell you how many times I went on school field trips to meet Mr. McFeeley more than once hahaha, so that was a nice cameo for me!
@hikaymm I definitely know what you mean about the difference between Ben alone and Ben with the band. and I'm very happy someone is ready to talk about the Mr. Rodgers cameo hahaha
@jeff4122 @caricakes Alright, alright I'm here! Hahaha. I do definitely get Ben vibes from Madeline, but Ben vibes are usually different from Death Cab vibes if you know what I mean. Though some of the Death Cab albums scream more Ben than death cab.....either way, I like it! Especially Trevor Forever and it's Mr. Rogers appearance haha.
make it happen @VinMcCarthy!
