in th tradition of the coolest album titles....

i have always though that Silver Jews was clever,

Belle and Sebastian is a beautiful name

and the Fuckknuckles are an awesome band name for a riot grrl band

kudos to the Crucifucks and the Smiths too...

Silver Jews is good, I saw an interview with Berman and he said that he never really liked the name that much at the start of his career, but he seemed to grow into it. I really like Silver Jews.

My noise project is probably going to be called YouthInAsia if it's not taken, I love the name.

Other really good ones:
Acid Mothers Temple
23 Skidoo
the NOW Time Delegation

I like ridiculous names.

Meanwhile, back in communist russia.

Napalm Death. [good]

Lawnmower Death [better]

Vomit Lunch.

Xasthur [names with X in win out]

Throbbing Gristle.

Seagulls screaming, kiss her! kiss her! [I can't remember if this was their actual name, there was a band whose name was something like that]

Extreme Noise Terror.

Hmm. I seem to be at a loss this evening. Perhaps I'll think of more tomorrow. Tribute act: By Jovi.

I second that. I love absurdly grandiose names. Godspeed You Black Emperor gets kudos for that too.

I hate pretentious, 'obscure' names. We'll go with well-known references:

Death Cab for Cutie
Minus the Bear
Death from Above 1979
Explosions in the Sky (you've got to be shitting me)
Say Hi to Your Mom (I think I just threw up)

I won't even address the catchy 'retro' category, where at least one band member is required to have sweeping forehead bangs:

The Hives
The Killers
The Concretes
The Walkmen
The *insert fucktarded random noun*

I like nonsensical, pointless, unassuming band names.

I would list them but I decided I hate everyone and they should all die so I don't feel like it.
