I've never been able to figure out how I'm supposed to verbalize NOFX.
"en-oh-ef-ex"? "No effects"?

I've always just spelled it out N-O-F-X, but I've heard people say no effects.

I pronounce the y-u in "Kyuss" like the y-u in "hyuck"

Isn't it "No-Eff-Ex" kinda thing? I've never heard anyone actually spell it out...

I don't know German so I always second guess myself when saying Einstürzende Neubauten... my guess is ein-shterr-zend-a noy-bau-ten.

I pronounce Autechre as if it were French. For some reason I sometimes pronounce Tame Impala as Ta-may Impala, even though I know it's blatantly incorrect. I guess Ta-may is sort of like the Maori version

And how about Ungl'Unl'Rrlh'Chchch? I always had trouble with that one... damn Lovecraft worshippers
