Sepultura - it means a grave or a burial place
Nasum - it means to be born
Pig Destroyer - they wanted a name like "cop killer" but less obvious
Anal Cunt - Seth chose a combination of the two most offensive and dumbest words he could think of

As for local bands,most of them suck like kunkusion and shit like that there.
Triad(local band) is a pretty cool name,and demonstrates their musical knowledge.

Children of Bodom

I read that they got the name from a story told in finland.
I guess 4 kids went to go camp at lake bodom.
But after the night was over there was only one kid left.

The police didn't know who did the crime, but later realized that the alive boy killed the rest.


So i just think Children have the most awesome name, and story behind the name.:headbang:

Free Beer used to play Sydney pubs in the 1980's- they always played to a full house.
There is a big band in OZ called Machine Gun Fellatio- how good is that?
Die Toten Hosen is German for "The Dead Pants"
A few industrial bands have excellent names like Einsturzende Neubaten, German for "Destroy New Buildings". My ex used to listen to Throbbing Gristle and also

my favorite band name is blink 182.. I dont know why probably cause its so different.
Does anyone here know what it means????
krystle

It doesn't mean anything, the name was totally random...it started off as just "Blink", then right before their first album they added on the 182.

Later in the years the band member came up with a list of things that 182 could mean.

Well, if I do say so my self, the best band names are:

Fall Out Boy
Queen

I mean, Fall Out Boy didn't even come up with the name, they didn't have a name at a concert and they asked the crowd for a name, and some dude yelled out "Fall Out Boy" and it stuck. Also, turns out it is the sidekick of Bart Simpson's favorite superhero, Radioactive Man. How sweet is that!

Then, Queen, ok, well, they are gay, and it just fits, and they are the best classic rock band EVER!

Once again everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I think you suck. This thread is about what you think is the best, not the worst. But, that's ok since your music taste is so obscure and varied.

And to make this relevant, I think Bathory, Zyklon, Amon Amarth and Limbonic Art are some of the best names. But if I had to choose I'd simply go for Bathory.
