Death Cab for Cutie - like the band, dislike the name

Red... Great band, great music, but come on! How much effort does it take to come up with an original name? Im thinkin the band was sitting around thinking of their name, and one of them was eating a starbust that happened to be red. Some other member (im thinkin the drummer) was like OMG!!! How about RED?!?! The rest of the members were dumbfounded that the drummer actually knew how to speak, let alone form whole sentences, so they immediately agreed.... just my opinion tho.

Most indie bands have horrible names, but I'd say better terrible then boring. I would rather be in a band called the Ultradestructive Cannibal Vulvas then a band called Past Tense.

I feel like the line between a good band name and a bad band name can be extremely thin. I can see myself thinking The The was a really original and amusing band name. But on the other hand, it's kind of irritating. Same goes for Red.
As for the Killers. I like it because it's purposefully generic, and making sort of a mockery of generic band names.....but.....it's... still generic.

Then again I'm not really a huge fan of any of those bands. Which makes their names a lot more unappealing.

And...I'm probably going to get in trouble for saying this...but I've never loved the name Iron Maiden.

Band names should be well thought out. The music IS the most important thing, but having a name that has some (not stupid) meaning, or even better, some connection with the music is a plus (imo). I don't think a serious band helps themselves with a name that is not well thought out.

Heres a couple:

Dananananaykroyd
!!!
The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza
Test Icicles
Gay for Johnny Depp
Chumbawambas
Paracoccidioidomicosisproctitissarcomucosis
Mr. Mister

They're all pretty bad but I think the one that takes the prize has to be Anal Cunt:

^80% of those bands aren't meant to be taken seriously though. Hence a stupid name. And Mr. mister are hair metal, so they would obviously have a bad name.

Hehe. They're still pretty awful names even if they aren't meant to be taken seriously
