I can't figure out how to pronounce Meshuggah. Care to help, MBers?
Sigur Rós = See-er rose
!!! = Any three repeated sounds but I think "chk chk chk" is pretty widely acknowledged.

Is that really how it's pronounced? I've always said it as "sig-er" and then something like "roast" minus the "t".

I'm pretty sure the 'g' is silent but I've heard it a few ways. "Roas", as you say, sounds correct.

I'll take 'sugar rose' over 'sigger ross', which I often hear, any day.

Ew, 'Sigger Ross' sounds like country or a crappy jazz band or something. Just generally unappealing.

Sounds like the "g" is pronounced. Like "See-gur Roas"

I always feel like a dummy for not knowing how to pronounce people's last names. For the longest time I thought John Frusciante was John Froosh-e-ant-e. And J. Mascis was always J. Mas-es, never pronounced the "c".

The worst of all is how long I thought the Arctic Monkeys's 'Brianstorm' was 'Brainstorm'...

Hmmm, well It's not technically a band name. But I for the life of me wonder how the hell you pronounce the Ruins album "Hyderomastgroningem".
