    As I Lay Dying are actually a moderately heavy metalcore band. Not that great, but not really anything like Taking Back Sunday, either. Every Time I Die is another similar band/band name.

    Really long band names...
    "I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness" or
    "The Pains of Being Pure at Heart" which would make better song titles.
    They are long, especially I Love You, But I've Chosen Darkness (no sentences, especially with clauses!). Those are two pretty good bands, though. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart's debut album is excellent.


    "Garbage" is a really stupid name. It seems like they were trying too hard to be self-effacing or something, but just come off as lame.
    That one doesn't bother me too much. It's just really plain. Same as Blur. Great band, blah name.


    Any band name you are not sure how to say outloud, or spell if you heard it:
    "!!!" (pronounced "Chk Chk Chk")
    "PNAU" (I'm guessing you say it as "Now")
    "Xiu Xiu" (pronounced "Shoe Shoe")
    I've seen PNAU listed as pin-yow.

    Ooh, that's a great one. A) Crap band; B) sentence name; C) poor sentence structure, to boot.

    Back in Glasgow, years ago, there was a band called The Child Molesters - in order to get gigs they called themselves The Pretty Flowers.

    My friends' band has been called Mary Magdalene, The Racists, and The Crisco Brothers at various points. Oh, and the singer was considered The Holocaust Deniers.

    I think the really dramatic, dark, emo/goth band names are a little gay. The Used, The Forgotten, Cut-my-wrists-and-sulk-in-apathy, it's all a bunch of hog wash, I tell ya!

    I dislike a lot of the Rap/Dance/Hip-Hop artist names.

    All the 'Ladies' and the 'Lils' and the abbreviations.

    By the way, Lady Gaga makes me gag; the name, the person, and the music. It's HORRIBLE

    This is my new favorite thread! Disclaimer: Not necessarily current/relevant bands.

    t.A.T.u., or whichever letters are capitalized.
    I hate the name Coldplay, for some reason.
    Pretty Poison
    Another vote for Nickelback, Staind, and Death Cab for Cutie
    Did anyone mention Linkin Park? Ugh.
    Hinder (what are they hindering, exactly? Good music?)
    Pretentious indie names like City and Colour, Iron and Wine, Swell Season, A Fine Frenzy
    Something Witty

    I think some bands try wayy to hard to have that artistic and unique ring to their names, and it's kind of a laugh.

    Tallulah, I agree with you completely. I've never ever liked Coldplay, or the name.

    U2 is a terrible band name, imo. And I personally don't care for the band itself.

    Yes, I like them both, I just think their names are a bit silly.


    I can't believe Smashing Pumpkins hasn't been mentioned. I always thought they had a terrible name.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    You may already know this and it may be the very reason you think it's a terrible name in the first place, but in case you didn't know, it's British slang for "nice tits."
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
