Some bands have strange pronunciations of their names, that aren't immediately obvious from their spelling.
Entries Beginning with Z
Some people pronounce the surname as Ef-fron (as to not give it a schwa).
Frosty The Cat
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
