All your band names are belong to PETA
Oh God.
They might have gotten to Adam Ant (see the change from "Stand and Deliver" to "Save the Gorilla:), but they'll never get to the Pet Shop Boys.

Sounds like a joke, but it isn't-- representatives of PETA, with straight faces and everything, asked the long standing new wave band to change their name to Rescue Shelter Boys, after more than 20 years under their current moniker.

Well, at least it isn't vile like so many of their other publicity stunts, I'll give them that, and it could bring attention to the issue of puppy mills and the like. But really, PETA's been around since 1980. If they genuinely think this is such a great idea, maybe it would have been a better idea back in the Pet Shop Boys' heyday. Except oh wait, back in those days PETA was actually, you know, doing things to help animals rather than gazing at their collective navel.
