Back in the seventies, those leather-clad punk music legends the Ramonesrecorded such classic odes to well-being as "I Wanna Be Sedated" and "Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment." Irreverent, perhaps, but no more so than the latest rock bands, who've gone positively mental with their names. Consider Xanax 25 and Halcion, two groups who've appropriated the monikers of popular antianxiety drugs. Among the other bands who are practically certifiable:

o Psychotica

o Multiple Personalities

o Los Straight Jackets

o The Self-Haters Orchestra

Even therapists are jumping on the bandwagon. At a recent psychology conference, entertainment was provided by an all-shrink rock band. Their name? Group Therapy.
