What do you guys think of metal bands with ridiculous names? When I say ridiculous, I mean names like Dying Fetus or Cradle of Filth... with names like those I find it hard to take the band seriously. I mean, go ahead and make the gr1mmest kvltest band name you can think of, but at least don't make it that ridiculous. And not that it matters, but it doesn't really help the mainstream's perception of metal when they hear some of these band names.

Although I don't listen to Dying Fetus or Cradle of Filth, I'd be really embarrassed to tell a non-metalhead that I listened to either of those bands. I mean, I can barely say "Megadeth" (or even "Death") with a straight face... I mean, there's about infinity better names for a band than that.

Of course, each genre has its own bad names and stuff, but there are some metal band names that are just so uncreative (in my opinion) that I have to laugh.

Thoughts?

I think Meshuggah's pretty funny.

"Demons & Wizards"

...seriously, nobody can give them a chance (the actual music is extremely good, in my opinion) because of the name..

Goatwhore
Anal Cunt

Heck, just about any goregrind band out there.

Anaal Nathrakh wins though. Sounds like some hardcore anal fetish.

I ****ing love Cannibal Corpse's title, but I get funny/disgusted remarks when I state that I listen to them. That, Necrophagist, and Goat*****.

I don't really listen to any of those other bands up there, but I did see Dying Fetus.
I truly am my own redeemer
Blindly I follow none but myself
Without fear I am
Unhallowed be my name

Myself am hell and hell I shall unleash
I laugh at Thee to scorn
Mock Thy majesty
Pour forth my chalice ov victory

I think the first two are intentionally "funny" if you find that kind of thing amusing

That's an unintentionally funny emo name. And yeah, I'm with you TS I feel awkward saying I'm a Megadeth fan, and I do listen to Dying Fetus but that doesn't come in conversation too much.

I think Cradle of Filth is a pretty cool band name, even though I don't listen to them.

But Anally Aborted Fetus or whatever is pretty retarded.
