And not their own song, either.

World Leader Pretend
Radiohead
Death Cab for Cutie
The Rolling Stones
Court and Spark

I'm pretty sure that the Replacements, through the use of time travel, named themselves after the They Might Be Giants B-side "We're the Replacements."

Monochrome Set have songs titled both "Strange Boutique" and "Alphaville", I don't know if those two bands named themselves after those songs or not, though.

Alphaville was a strange little Jean-Luc Godard sci-fi movie back in the '60s, which I'll bet is where the band took the name from.
