There are many bands out there with names including the word "nuclear" e.g:

Nuclear Assault

Nuclear Baby Food

Nuclear Blast Suntan

Nuclear Chaos

Nuclear Crayons

Nuclear Erection

Nuclear Frost

Nuclear Sockets

Nuclear Winter

It doesn't seem like people are too bothered about the threat of dying from a nuclear war these days, but back in the '60s my mum was marching in the CND (campaign for nuclear disarmament) rallies and I did so in the '80s. How crazy is it that the START treaty is reducing the number of strategically deployed nuclear missiles from 2,200 to 1,550. A war involving 100 missiles would result in billions of deaths and disruption of the Earth's climate. But these days I don't care if humans want to kill eachother. They're all morons anyway. Why can't they at least use something that leaves the animals and plants unharmed?

The Finnish have some enormous band titles like "Kykloopien Sukupuutto" which means "the extinction of cyclops". They also have the band Ydintuho which means "nuclear disaster". The superb has their demo.

Oh, the classic '80s Finnish Nukketeatteri means "puppet theatre". One of the best punk bands ever , up there on my billboard.
