SXSW is a good time to sit back and reflect on all the dumbass band names that people come up with.
Oh, and there are a lot of them.
Take for instance the SXSW crowd favorite Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All.
What does this mean!? It’s not even a dark and brooding sentence like most ridiculous band names. It’s like they did the old Bowie trick and put some words into a hat. What’s so odd about the future, huh? And why does Mozart have to be wrangled in to your poor naming skills? Leave him alone! And don’t go making him killing everybody! Mozart was a good man. He wrote ‘The Magic Flute’ and I kind of like it.
I will not listen to this band purely based off of their name. There. You lost a potential listener due to your inability to come up with a winning band name (absolutely nota Charlie Sheen reference). Same goes for most of these bands below. Your band names suck and here is why….
Tell me your favorite dumbass band name!
