Are the bands that have catchy names more prone to recognition and fame ?
I couldn't help but notice that hard pronounced bands are respected but not credited like they should be. They may have great music but their name is standing as an obstacle <- Read it in a review at a metal magazine.
So I'm wondering. Are the bands that have catchy names (metallica , megadeth etc etc ) more prone to recognition and fame ?
Opinions ?
Discussions ?
Flames?

i think bands with a name like that somwetimes get odd stares, and people will often judge that they dont llike it before they hear it, sadly.

THATS exactly what I mean. They judge the name , they cant pronounce it or it sounds wierd to them , so they dont listen to it . And the bands with that kind of names get less advertising and recocnition from the masses that they silently fail no matter if a small amount of fans think they are great.
On the other hand , there are some bands that their musical skills are mediocre or none that they get advertised and recognized so much , that they become somehow great just because they have a catchy name . Catch my drift?

EDIT : And it is too hard to find a name these times . They all have been taken , thats why ppl end up with a name like : invirkaloval satanis mysterioum (randomly selected)

Fair enough , but it seems , you have taken the initiative to call me a cunt without even knowing me . 1) i dont know you 2) never insulted you and never said any noob things in this forum 3) i respect the rules and the dudes in this forum 4) go fuck yourself plain and simple. if you dont like me making threads , you go ahaid and make one . therefore i will come in your thread , say you are a cunt and say "dont make thread you cun't" we'll see if you like it..
And if you are calling me a cun't for fun , I will apologize and will no longer object

Well at least its not the same kind of threads as "Best metal guitarist", "best metal song", or something like that. Ive never seen a thread like this and its interesting.
#29
He asked a question that has a better subject than a lot of the garbage that gets put in this forum. Jesus Christ sometimes you guys are little bitches.

If a band has a name like Anal Cunt they will only be popular to those within in the genre, it will be harder for them to get advertisements in other places because a lot of sites, music channels, etc. claim to be "for all ages" kind of thing.

No he didnt. If anyone deserves a flaming its SG Rocker


Fuck off.

Back on topic: I'd say a catchy name sticks in the person's mind remembering them for either if there music is good, bad, or meh IMO.

Well, in all honestly, he did ask for flaming in his first post.


I was trying to achieve reverse psychology on you . rofl..
Seriously , I didnt ask for flaming. I asked from ppl to flame this thread IF it has been done before , IF it is irrelevant to the forum which it isnt , IF it disturbes the mass of the forum.. flaming with no reason isnt very polite.

Yeah, you're probably right. I guess I just assumed based on your other threads. My bad.

ANYWAY:

If the band has a catchy name, then their music is more popular. I think that's the verdict?

I've heard someone say that about Slayer. Of course, he listened to rap, which is full of bad names...

probably. ^ .. if they have a catchy name they get promoted and advertised more than other bands , thus , their songs become known and popular.. But they may be bands that have more musical skills that ^that bands but they get no credit or promotion for their work , weather that's cause of their name or cause of their bribing the labels.

EDIT : reply to icarus66 ^
