it might just be me but:

how come everyone lately is into the weird epic-wannabe bandnames? i swear, i cant go anywhere without hearing dumb names like "Hopes downfall" or "Tomorrows sunrise" or such. (i just made those up.) does anyone actually even like these? or do they just use them because theyre so stereyotypical and easy?

ive always had this on the back of my mind... ive just never said anything about it.

The 'indie' ones are worse. 'Son, Ambulance.' 'Get cape, wear cape, fly'.

Honestly, you're all shit.

The worst band names are the ones that are " ____ of ____ "

"The Lies Of Tomorrow"

"The Ends of Sanity"

They are all just stupid and annoying.

Q And Not U
The Sound of Animals Fighting

Neutral Milk Hotel
Forward Russia!

You people are too picky. Jesus Christ, its a band name..

(But I kind of hate the post progessive ones or whatever, like Godspeed You! Black Emperor).
#14

Yeah, they suck and alt bands suck and scene bands suck. I'm glad I ain't an art fag
#20
p!atd is by far one of the worse. i knwo this is stereotypical, but fall out boy, where the hell do you get that? but yeah all the hardcore names are really annoying, for reasons everyone has already stated.

i mean at least get creative and make something like cattle decapitation or cannibal corpse, even though thats quite disgusting haha

Shows how much you know. Those bands are shit, but you're a dumbass if you think that they represent "indie."


That is why I have written it as 'indie' instead of indie, you see.

Ok whilst there are a lot of painful band names (P!atd are clearly the biggest offenders ugh I hate them for so many reasons) a few of them make good music. As someone mentioned 'the (insert nouns)s' are always the worst because they're so aboriginal.

As for System of a Down, well that's actually a turn of phrase I think, so they're not just being pretentious and grandiose for the sake of it.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

YES, the biggest turn off of all. I hate these overlong, over-elaborate band names. They simply suck.

EDIT: You forgot the upside down exclamation mark before Forward Russia!

You know most of these "epic" names aren't nearly half as bad as alot of metal ones. Death metal bands especially have a habit of creating non pronouncable words just because they are that hardcore.

How bout people stop bitching about names and start bitching about the god-awful music some of these bands are producing instead yeah?

Band names that start with The, or even magazines that put The in front of a bands name e.g The Smashing Pumpkins, The Pixies etc are worse. Im only bitching about these because half the time these THE bands are ****ing generic indie shit.
I think Cedric dropped the mic about 20 times cause he was throwing it around so much. He also had a milk crate on his head for a bit. So yeah, it was a good show...crazy kids.

I love the Mars Volta.
#33
You think those are bad. Seriously metal bands EASILY have the worst names ever. They're trying to sound so metal and tough and it's just ridiculous really. Metallica, Megadeth, Cannibal Corpse, Children of the Bodom, and of course Dragonforce. Now those are some shitty band names.
