Cowboyneal!

Erg, um, I chose 666, b'cause it's a nice, round, happy number. Funny how the writer of Revelation picked that number: when you take the number values of each letter in the original language, you create a new number. It was only fitting that the writer, being forcefully exiled by his government, calculated this number and wrote about it. The name used to calculate that number? "Nero Caesar".

I wonder what other names equate to 666 (heh, sounds like a project to me...must do more research!). Kinda also deflates all the heavy SatanMetal of the 80's and 90's, and makes all those "EvilKids" you went to school with, who had that number etched with a knife into their books and folders and whatever else, kinda look like misguided fools. Y'know? Ah, smalltown life.™

Let he who has wisdom calculate the number of a man, for it is the number of the beast. That number is six-hundred and sixty six.
