I'm just wondering if I'm the only person in the world who finds it completely unneccessary to abbreviate names of bands. "BLS","A7X","RHCP","MCR", etc. I find it ironic that the only word I ever abbr. is abbreviate...

To me abbreviated band names just look ****ty. I mean, RHCP... MCR? Those just look bad... I guess they just look like the band sounds *Raises flame shield!*

Any abbreviations you find neccessary? Any you find REALLY unneccessary?

Basically, just looking for opinions on band abbreviations.

I rarely abbreviate anything, the only one really is SYL... when I'm typing it anyway.
Looking through my music collection though, I have surprisingly few bands with names more than a couple of words long..

Why on earth would I waste my time typing out 'My Chemical Romance' when 'MCR' gets the exact same message across? Stop being so anal.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

Well said.

Abbreviations are used for convenience.

Its bad enough having to read 'MCR' without someone writing the whole name and me flashing white with rage.

I use some abbrievations.

Like on MSN, I can't be bothered to type out "Be Right Back" when dinners out. I want my food soon!

I love "Cba", "Brb", "lol", "Lmao", "Rofl".

I'm quite sure "Etc." is needed. I am not writing out "Et Cetera" everytime.

It annoys me when people say the abbreviations in normal speech.

But yeah, I'll be damned if I'm gonna type out "Black Label Society" everytime I wanna mention the band on the PC...
Funny words.

I bet you say PC in real life.

Personally, I don't abbreviate a lot. I use brb, etc and abbreviations for classes on msn, the only ones I pronounce abbreviated in real life are the ones that are actually called that way (like MSN and SMS).
