A Heavy Metal band that has unnecessary umlauts in its name. Motörhead and Mötley Crüe are two examples of this phenomenon.

Don't forget the classic Blue Öyster Cult. It was while the newly-formed Motörhead was opening for BÖC in the early 70s that Lemmy and company were infected by the umlaut.

There's also Seattle based band Queensrÿche ("Silent Lucidity").

Parodied, of course, by the brilliant Spinal Tap. (The umlaut goes over the 'n'.)
