I can't see their name without hearing it in my head being said by Nathan Barley. Very off-putting.

At least 5 hells, 2 asses, 2 damns, 1 S.O.B., 2 uses of "Jesus" and 1 use each of "Gdamn," "God," "God-awful," "Oh Jesus," "Oh my God," "Sweet Jesus" and "Swear to God." One "save my ass".

I love metal band logo's. Always to undecipherable and trying to out-do all the rest in their scariness.

Weird isn't it, but I think that's one of the best band names ever. The Strange Death of Liberal England is great too (much better than the myriad single name bands such as Editors, Foals etc - how boring).
Kevo or Matthew Wood? Malevolence or good?

It's the clunky "hiphoprisy"(spelt it wrong first time) pun I dislike -especially since at their best Franti was very eloquent.

Even for the South African football team that inspired it?

I've never liked the name 'System Of A Down'.

try playing the ilike challenge on facebook- i hate all the names on that- travis tritt, smash mouth, avenged sevenfold etc. you couldn't make them up.
"Even if I saw these names grouped together completely out of context away from here... lets say a set of albums sitting together in a charity shop - I would immediately think of you and no other!"

thanks Gary...

I think we've established that most "The" band names are shit but I'd like to give a special mention to The Twang. Just hideous.

Surely the BEST name for a band ever?


And sadly not true. it's actually Kein Mehrheit Fur Die Mitleid, which translates roughly into No Sympathy For The Masses.

While we're here, a couple of relatively current shit names, so shit in fact I don't care how good the bands are, but with names that bad, they're going to be dismal.

Strong Asian Mothers (really? REALLY!)
Crywank (seen the sales of their records, presumably?)

There's more (oh lawd there's more), but those two top the shit cake like really shitty cherries.
