All Ball
wikipedia wrote:Koko is one of the few non-humans known to keep a pet. Researchers at The Gorilla Foundation said that Koko asked for a cat for Christmas in 1983. Ron Cohn, a biologist with the foundation, explained to the Los Angeles Times that when she was given a lifelike stuffed animal, she was less than satisfied. She did not play with it and continued to sign "sad." So on her birthday in July 1984, she was able to choose a kitten from a litter of abandoned kittens. Koko selected a gray male Manx and named him "All Ball". Penny Patterson, who had custody of Koko and who had organized The Gorilla Foundation, wrote that Koko cared for the kitten as if it were a baby gorilla. Researchers said that she tried to nurse All Ball and was very gentle and loving. They believed that Koko's nurturing of the kitten and the skills she gained through playing with dolls would be helpful in Koko's learning how to nurture an offspring.

In December of that same year, All Ball escaped from Koko's cage and was hit and killed by a car. Later, Patterson said that when she signed to Koko that All Ball had been killed, Koko signed "Bad, sad, bad" and "Frown, cry, frown, sad". Patterson also reported later hearing Koko making a sound similar to human weeping.

These are kind of a cheat because I intend on using them if I ever learn how to use Fruity Loops properly and start making electronic music but:

The Wow! Signal (house, electro and cosmic disco)
Brocken Spectre (austere minimal techno)

Further to that, Tentacle Erotica

Given that we're giving them styles now, I'd just like to state for the record that Jewish Autonomous Oblast are a quirky math rock three piece from upstate New York.

It's kinda great when you see a new musical definition and know exactly what it is straight away.
