Far, far at the bad name/good band extreme: My Bloody Valentine.

Well, thatís a weird one, because in 2019 to a teenager growing up in the Ď00s, it probably sounds gag-worthy, like oh I dunno my chemical romance... But ... itís actually a good band name.

A take on ďMy Funny ValentineĒ that makes it sound a fittingly dangerous (at least for their early work) and goes well with their sound.

Great name, great band.

The Birthday Party ... excellent.
The Who... not always a great band, but a great band name.
Guided by Voices... EXQUISITE.

Oof.

Just kidding - I know it's a stupid name, but sometimes you just want to mope about and listen to music that *gulp* expresses your feelings. And for that purpose it's excellent.
(Admission - last year for a queer ball I went to, you had to dress up with some theme and I essentially appeared in Gerard Way cosplay.)

Great name, great band.
Look, I get what you're saying, but it's not. Kevin himself admits that it's from a really terrible movie, and they even wanted to change it in ~1988.

Amazing how they went from being a mediocre band with a shit name to an astonishing band with a shit name.

Nah, I disagree.
Good band name, Kevin doesnít know what heís talking about, and their early work might be an acquired taste, but itís a taste Iíve acquired.

their most recent album (m b v) is their worst, even though itís still good.

And the band name works.
