Natalie Portman's Shaved Head is miles worse than either of those

Has anybody said anything about post rock band names? I know a few annoying ones:
And So I watch You From Afar
If These Trees Could Talk
The Samuel Jackson Five
This Will Destroy You

Am I crazy or has the whole indie world over thought their names with some self-righteous jab at everything they think is laconic?
It's kinda funny because many of Trail of Dead's fans like them for the name haha.

Must just be your opinion.

I personally like pretentious long band names. They usually draw my attention and make me check out the bands music.
Some of my favorites(most of these aren't indie rock but still):
Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Neutral Milk Hotel
Suffocate for Fuck Sake
Bohren & der Club of Gore
Death Cab for Cutie
Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson
(The) Slowest Runner (In All the World)
world's end girlfriend
