    And You will Know Us by the Trail of Dead

    ^ Decent rock band, but I want to shoot whoever thought of that dumb name. It probably sounded edgy back in the early 90s.

    I was always on the edge with that one, never able to figure out whether I loved or hate it. Think you're right though. Hasn't held up to time very well.

    Panic! at the Disco


    The name would still be incredibly annoying, but the superfluous exclamation point is the worst. I'm not sure that I know any of the songs, but the name itself is enough to convince me that they must be terrible.

    Also, Owl City is a really stupid name. Even my avatar agrees. It's even worse that it's just one person. How can something be a city if only one person is in it? Owl Desert Island would be a far better name.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    Odd enough to be interesting, without being annoying. That's weird enough to not be terrible. It could be improved, though, if the name was changed to Beards of Canada.

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor
    That name is almost as annoying as Panic! at the Disco, and the only thing making it less annoying is that the words "disco" and "panic" aren't present. The band, though, rocks. Mellow, peaceful, and ominous at the same time.

    Chumbawumba
    Yes. Sounds like it came out of the Ewok language. The album art is a perfect match for the terribleness of the name, though.



    Jamiroquai
    That one is only a problem because I have no idea how the fuck to pronounce to it.


    My contribution:

    The Black Keys

    I like the band, but it cannot be a good idea to give your blues rock duo a similar name to another popular blues rock duo. They aren't really that much alike apart from being bluesy, but the name paves the way for a lot of music nerd Kirk vs. Picard debates.

    I always thought Audioslave was a terrible name. Isn't that a brand of speakers?
