SXSW band list rife with awful band names:|
Cute Is What We Aim For -- Suck is what you actually hit.
Every Move a Picture -- that doesn't even make any sense, except as pure narcissism
Margot and the Nuclear So And Sos -- negative points for 'x and the ys' name, double neg for arch non sequitir.
Thunderbirds Are Now! -- !!! called, they want their bangs back.
My Latest Novel -- my music sounds like book glue smells
So So Modern -- too precious and ironic by half, fuckwad
The Gear -- err. sounds like high concept marketing. STFU
The Have -- see above, plus neg points for part-of-speech violation
Vincent Van Go Go -- It's Van Gochh, asshat. Your name is only a pun if you mispronounce 'Van Gogh'
Maybe someone who users the name Chaircrusher shouldn't criticize but c'mon.
My favorite band names on that list?
The Lucky Stiffs -- scans well, good use of archaic idiom
These Arms Are Snakes -- vague menace and surrealism always a good combo
Union Of Knives -- vague menace, good scansion, succinct
Audible Mainframe -- good retro geek reference
Wolf and Cub -- 3 syllables, animals, not too cute.
Wooden Wand -- Wooden Spoon would be better, but Spoon already taken.
