Some bands have strange pronunciations of their names, that aren't immediately obvious from their spelling.
Entries Beginning with Z
pronounced as Zee Zee Top
ZZ Top is an American band, and the last letter of the alphabet is called "zee" in the US. (The rest of the English-speakers call the last letter of the alphabet "zed".)
Xysma pronounced as Zeyes-maw
pronounced as zhah-NAY
An accent mark appears over the "E"; the band's debut album is even titled "Pronounced Jah-Nay" (which is close enough, phonetically).
Jean Luc Ponty pronounced as zhan luke pon-tee
The Godfather of Droll
