Default The Band Name Pronunciation Thread

Admit it, you've came across a band you wouldn't be be able pronounce even if your life depended on it. So if you still have extreme difficulty pronouncing Sigur Ros, or can't figure out how you would ever tell someone about !!!, or even are still quite unclear about how the **** you'd say Autechre, just ask here.

I can't figure out how to pronounce Meshuggah. Care to help, MBers?

I always just pronounced it like "meh sugar" but with an "ah" instead of an "ar" sound at the end of the "sugar" part.

Thank you! I wanted to tell my friend about what I was listening to on my MP3 player, but I didn't want to risk pronouncing it wrong.

This may be an easy one, but I've heard people say Kasabian a few different ways. Ka-say-be-in, kasa-bain... etc. So which is it?

To say it in true English style it's Ka-say-be-un.

I guess since they're from England I see that "re" on the end as being pronounced the same way as the end of "centre" or "theatre".

I pro-nounce it aux-teh-cruh in my head (similar to the -re ending you speak of), as if the word were French. Out loud I say aw-tek-er.
