I have no idea what it means. Is there an actual meaning?? Either way, it's one of the dumbest names I have ever heard.

Well, Wikipedia gives two possible explanations for the name, both don't make it seem any less retarded:

Quote:
The name of the band comes from a phrase heard by Russell Crowe during post-production on the movie Virtuosity. Apparently, some Dubbing was required for a fight scene; since time is sometimes measured by length of film in the movie industry, Crowe was asked to provide the eponymous "30-odd foot of grunt". Another published story (Melbourne Herald Sun) of the name's origin, is that the combined height of the band members (literally 30 odd feet) and grunt referring to the 'grunt' in the band's music.

I don't even know what to say. Poor, poor judgment. They should all be ashamed.

When I was younger and really into them, it sounded kind of tough and dark, I never really thought of it as dumb or silly. I think I was just so consumed with the dark and scary sound of the music and imagery to realize that it really is quite silly, probably even more so to someone who doesn't know their music.

Same here, well actually I guess it was more like I didn't think about the name one way or the other. It wasn't until I was a lot older that started thinking about how silly it sounds and wondering why anyone would choose to name their band that.

I still love their music though.
