snotty, inane commentary, because I can't help myself.
love this band. I really do. According to their website, "!!! is pronounced
by repeating any three repetitive, monosyllabic sounds. Though the
possibilities are endless, the most common pronunciations are Chk
Chk Chk, Pow Pow Pow, Uh Uh Uh, Etc Etc Etc. The name was inspired
by the subtitles from the film The Gods Must Be Crazy , where three
clicking sounds of the mouth were represented as !!!."
I am against unnecessary symbols in band names, I guess the # is appropriate.
kind of dumbfounded by this one.
regular "Smog" already taken?
what is a wumpscut? (b) does it have something to do with colons?
the colons and asterisk really necessary?
You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
one's got an ellipsis AND a really long name. Even the abbreviation
(AYWKUNTToD) is way too long!
to their website, this is pronounced "oh-oh-eye-oh-oh," which sounds
almost like a NKotB song. However, I think it's spelled zero zero
pipe zero zero.
Times the Pain
on, you KNOW you wanted it to be 69 times.
wonder how many fans got stoned and dialed this number?
Gun Called Tension
Life Once Lost
might make a good soap opera name.
Love Ends Suicide
should have just used "See me crying while writing in my blog
about how cruel life is. Alas." and been done with it.
they grow up, they'll be a Major Forest.
one? how does Wilhelm feel about this?
Wish For Fire
time wax your match tips before you go camping in the rain.
do you even say this? I thought it was one of those instances where
the special characters weren't showing up.
n to (x)
exclamation point for extra paranoia.
is on fire? Alexis on fire? Ale Xi Son Fire? Does it matter?
two bad words. Radical. Still...
This is just
gross. I can picture this conversation:
mom: Where are you going tonight, Timmy?
Timmy: I'm going out to see Anal Mucus.
On second thought, that might be kinda funny.
Also the Trees
don't forget them.
this is supposed to present a dichotomy or something. It doesn't work.
band has nothing to do with architecture, nor are they from Finland.
guess Death and Megadeth had already been taken by other bands.
your friends are rusty? Are they robots? That's pretty emo.
don't think Hope would appreciate this.
I Lay Dying
it's a Faulkner reference (several have emailed me), but that doesn't
make it any less angsty and an overall lame band name.
Tall as Lions
you think about it, lions aren't very tall. Let's hope this is a reference
to something I'm just not cool enough to know.
For Blue Eyes
makes no sense. It sounds like a reject from the brainstorming session
that spawned Death Cab For Cutie.
than A Thousand
would that be
the Buried and Me
buried are the best secret-keepers.
Tape for a Blue Girl
Tape for a Green Girl would have been what happened when that chick
on Star Trek tried to apply for a passport. I don't know what this
one is about.
Has Been Shed
AND gratuitous use of the passive voice!
they'll get over it eventually.
is what happens when they watch too much Beavis and Butthead.
for my Valentine
the angst is killing me!
until their air runs out.
I will. Good idea.
+ ginger ale. It might clean your bathtub nicely.
Your Hands Say Yeah
don't. It's your choice.
I'm going to slaughter someone, I prefer a straightforward approach,
a blessing... but it's deadly! Whoa, hardcore!
Cab For Cutie
it's a reference to something obscure. We're not cool enough to know
what it is.
confused. Is this a command?
Spelling Police are having a field day with this one.
As We Speak
as we speak, bands are coming up with lame names for themselves!
Time I Die
hate when that happens.
violation... and what's with the "eye" part?
spaces between the words, this is just kinda cliché.
Before the March of Flames
they only had some punctuation marks, it would violate all my Laws
Space Police are making an arrest here.
For a Friend
the Hot Topic angst spilleth over.
ahead-- finish the sentence. It's ok!
just don't get it. Even with spaces.
you Black Emperor!
can't touch this one.
if this had spaces it still makes no sense.
are really, really white."
hope she sends a postcard.
Love You But I've Chosen Darkness
is an either/or situation?
this a command?
pronounced KY-is (like Caius), but nobody ever says it that way. Boo.
suppose they could have made it LoveHate and I would have been more
pretty--- but why?
is the Bastard
we got that cleared up.
know this was the title of an old Sci-fi flick, but as a band name?
there really a place in Pennsylvania called Matt Pond, or are they
just trying to be artsy?
won't accept this band until Motion City votes their music the Official
told you to stop buying flowers for the rubbing alcohol!
did you marry her if you knew she was dying? Or... did you poison
her? Ooh plot thickening alert!
in the closet next to My Dinner Jacket.
so indie it hurts.
Use For a Name
clever! They couldn't think of anything good?
sounds randomly generated.
this name has actually grown on me. I kinda like it now.
this ironic or something?
The Might of Princes
not impressed so far.
Mistaken for Stars
to Blow Up The Eiffel Tower
To Have Catchy Band Name Failed.
sounds kind of cool, but makes no sense.
Hi To Your Mom
want to insert a "your mom" joke here, but I can't think
of anything good.
like Indian food.
least the death isn't aseptic. Of course, if you're dead, you don't
really have to worry about germs now, do you? Maybe they took Bury
Your Dead's advice!
Organs of Admittance
I just buy a ticket?
this a place name or a description?
of Our Lives
my life, buster!
words sound kind of cool together... but do they have any meaning?
Is The Reason
don't forget it.
is this? This makes no sense!!!
Get Up Kids
listened to a lot of James Brown. You can't tell from their music,
Receiving End of Sirens
Rocking Horse Winner
I just win a rocking horse? Or did the rocking horse win?
Sun Sawed in 1/2
need a really, really strong saw.
Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black
semi-obscure actress reference contained in a really long name!
is listening to your CD? Not very good advertizing, I'm afraid.
is the sound of pretention.
picture a bunch of musical notes stuck to a squirrel's tail. Maybe
this is the image they were going for.
like that old movie... only... not.
this mean the killer tortures people? Or does he or she kill torture?
Or is it a command to torture a killer?
on the Radio
this like one of those radios that get TV stations on it? This is
one of my favorite bands, but the name… oh the name…
I get it, like vivisection, only with "sick"! That's clever!
band should get together with "As All Die", "As I Lay
Dying" and "Every Time I Die" and have a little death-fest.
Got a Fuzzbox and We're Gonna Use It
Got a Long Name And We're Gonna Make You Say It.
Fear and Weapons Meet
this some kind of conference?
worse than "Localized bloodshed" but not as bad as a "pandemic of
for the Derby
feel like I should know what this means, but I don't.
Burns to Death
"headline" type name-- a little too dramatic for my taste.
picture a bunch of corpses driving cranes with wrecking balls attached.
That's kind of a funny image.
