    I have thought about his for a long time, but another post brought it back to my attention. It is so difficult to come up with a band name today, simply because you need to be able to search for them on the internet.

    There are some names that still work great on accident, like Aerosmith, or Led Zeppelin, but there are a lot of newer bands that have screwed themselves. The Kilers, yeah popular now, but killers shows up all over the net... Fergi, great, it probably won't come up too many times.

    My new favorite band, which grabbed me just by their name.. Why Twist The Hair

    Can you name one new band with a bad name (searchabilty wise)?

    ... and the same for good names?

    is this honestly a concern of yours? shouldnt you be, as a band, more concerned with making music?

    Anal Cunt and Prostitute Disfigurement are typically ones I avoid doing google searches for.

    Other bands with bad searchability: Tool, A Perfect Circle, Mercenary, Emperor, Mayhem, Muse, Nile, Peeping Tom, Sentenced, The Gathering, Atmosphere, Blur, Black Flag, Cage, Clutch

    Easy names to find? Opeth, 1349, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Candlemass, Therion, Lykathea Aflame, Radiohead, 3 Inches of Blood, Bauhaus, Diablo Swing Orchestra, The Flaming Lips, Spock's Beard (and about a bajillion metal bands)

    Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I can name the all-time worst, most unsearchable band name ever.

    Unfortunately it is a big concern of mine. Like I said, it isn't something that has always been important, but is now. It has been quite a while since the music industry was all about music....

    I know a band called The Boneheads. Totally fits them. But their music is good.
