    Best band names:
    Big Head Todd and the Monsters
    Fitz & The Tantrums
    Gogol Bordello
    Joy Division
    Alice in Chains
    Screaming Trees


    All of which sound pretty original.

    Any one-word band name, no matter if I like the band or not, is just lazy.

    From the internets, "Steely Dan was named after a dildo in the novel Naked Lunch written by William Burroughs. According to the writer of the novel, Steely Dan was a metal dildo that was crashed by an evil German prostitute using her nether regions."

    You're thinking of the scene in Clockwork where they kill a couple with their own statue of a penis.

    No time for the old in and out, love. I've just come to read the meter.

    I will. ;)
    By the way, there's a popular new German band getting lots of airplay here, called Milky Chance. Now that's a shitty name if I ever heard one.

    I heard that one too. Crazy krauts.

    Btw, mods, I inadvertently hit 'report' instead of 'reply' on the previous post. Feel free to ignore that. :D

    That will go down on your permanent record....

    And that's a terrible band name. It didn't translate well, and I don't find that interesting either. Two strikes.

    Funny, that's on most people's best name list.

    My latest worst band name: Future Islands.

    I was wondering when you'd show up! I--hang on, Brian Eno is at the front door again, collecting for the Man/Boy Love Association, no doubt.

    Just seeing if I named off anybody and pretty much every good and worst band name has been mention.

    Sorry can't let this one get slip by.

    That your opinion. But they are all great bands and they all kick ass.

    I'm glad you bumped this up. I was looking to vent about "lovelytheband". Yes, that's their name. Aside from the shitty name, they have a shitty song that all the adult contemporary stations have been playing relentlessly for 6 months now.
