Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.
this thread appears to be overrun whith shite bands with shite names (shame on you guys for rekindling my long repressed memories of crazy town!)
so, i'm going to list some reasonably good artists with bad names:
the jam, the smoking popes, velvet acid christ, tubeway army, goldfrapp, kitchens of distinction, the wedding present, the birthday party, fad gadget, the dillinger escape plan, yeah yeah yeahs, virgin prunes, television
Incidentally, I believe that I am a dominant Ti user, and I often have trouble explaining things that I understand well. It's a matter of organizing the presentation of material. I can have it perfectly organized in my head all at once, but structuring the sequential delivery of material so that others understand is a different matter entirely, and requires a different skill set that I am apparently lacking.
puddle of mudd - one of the worst EVER, thank fred durst for signing them
staind - give fred bizkit durst props for that one too
coldplay - pretty bad
nickelback - should never have become
nickel creek - sounds too much like nickelback

fischerspooner - see the explanation for funkstorung
chumbawumba - i agree with eleven other people on this thread on that one
spice girls - made me want to stick my head in an oven
andrew w.k. - we may share a name but he makes it suck. just forget he exists again.

spin doctors - i shudder at this one
counting crows - actually anything with the word crow
mindless self indulgence - kicks ass but has way too many syllables in their name.
ace of bass
all american rejects

another bad creation
I strangely love that emo style of band name, what with the participles and mini-sentences and such. Maybe it's cause I never listened to any of those older emo/post-hardcore bands growing up.
There is one kind of band name I absolutely can't stand: anything with the word "wolf," "lion," "jaguar," "rabbit," etc. in them. It just comes off as trying to be spiritual and wild in a really artificial and corporate way. Ironically, it's a lot of indie bands that do this, Pedro the Lion for example.
Emmure (lol manure)
Taking Back Sunday
Job for a Cowboy
The Village People (I imagine a village full of cannibals)
Cannibal Corpse (why not just 'zombie'?)
Linkin Park (also the worst band ever, possibly, albeit tied with Limp Bizkit, most likely)
Neutral Milk Hotel
Apples in Stereo
The Flaming Lips
Any other hipster/scenester band
