band names that annoy you
« on: November 17, 2020, 07:34:29 PM »
even if you like the band itself, what are names that are pretentious or just not-well-thought out ?

my list, ill add to it later
 
!!! - pretentious and stupid af. i've heard it supposed to be "click click click" but honestly who gives a shit?

biffy clyro - just a weird annoying name to me. is it "sly-ro" or "Kly-ro" ? oh nevermind i lost interest

sleigh bells - this is a great name for a holiday band, otherwise, nah. ive heard them they're good.

any of the "____ the ____" names, i havent seen many new ones recently. examples include. Foster the People, Portugal the Man, Tyler the Creator, Chance the Rapper, Walk the Moon...etc...

Anderson  .Paak - notice the extra space he gives between the anderson and paak? why the . ? is it Poc or Pack? missed the mark with that one. pretentious.

MC5 - this one is on me. i assume this was a rap group until i realized that no, it's a punk band.

Charlie Puth - ok dude if your last name LOOKS LIKE it sounds like "puss", change it.

Eric Church - this is very petty of me but that looks like a R&B singer not a country singer.

ok thats enough for now...you go...

I really struggle with rappers names....often just seem really silly to me.

I may be missing something as i know nothing at all about rap/hip hop culture but it just seems silly to me when hear many of the names.

Another one that irritates me more than it should as i think she is good is 'Joan as Police Woman'

I also dislike 'stylised' names like 'The Weeknd' '5ive'

YES! The The and The Weeknd are dumb af. DeadMau5 <i literally argued with a guy that thought it was dead mau-five..>

Most band names taken from places. Worked for Kansas, Chicago, and maybe Japan.

Japan were reasonably well known here in the late 70's and very early 80's.

Most well known song was probably this:

Ghosts.

-The Band certainly sounds generic. 

-I guess going from Rainbow Butt Monkeys to Finger Eleven was a step in a better direction.
