Ice cream is good -- especially in the summer and of course today. With the advent of the deliciously yummy Ben & Jerry's ice cream, among others, ice-cream companies have been naming their flavors after artists for years.

Ben & Jerry's especially has been at the forefront of naming their ice creams after watershed moments in history, including music. But they haven't named everyone yet. So go have that pint or half-pint of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream and read our list of a few more potential flavors.

10. Kiss, "Detroit Rock City": Since Kiss likes to market their name on everything including condoms, caskets, costumes and even dolls, Gene Simmons should let KISS have their own ice cream. Imagine this: a blackberry and vanilla ice-cream swirl with nuts and chocolate bits.

Upcoming Events

9. The Runaways, "Cherry Bomb": Though they weren't that successful, legendary U.S. pre-punk band the Runaways were the spark that inspired such artists and bands as the Go-Go's, Courtney Love and all the Riot Grrrl music. The ice cream would contain vanilla and cherries with a cherry-syrup blast.

8. Jimmy Buffett, "Margaritaville": Music and business mogul Jimmy Buffett has made a killing off of songs like "Cheeseburger Paradise" and "Margaritaville." Through both those songs, he has started a radio station on Sirius called "Radio Margaritaville," the Cheeseburger in Paradise and Margaritaville, plus plenty more. He should also have his own "Margaritaville"-flavored ice cream. Either one of his restaurants or Ben & Jerry's could sell it to all Parrotheads. It could come in two versions: One with alcohol and another without.
