the Boxers, or the Fists of Righteous Harmony (義和團)

The Boxer Rebellion was full of great titles.

I just wanted to say that Boxers, judging by this picture, look fairly imposing. They were referred to as Boxers because they practiced martial arts. However, their title in Chinese is even better sounding. It is, loosely translated, The Fists of Righteous Harmony. If that doesn’t sound like the name of a great band, I don’t know what does.
