The Name Game
No Use for a Name has been around for 20 years, which is staggering when you consider that just about as many people know the punk band's name today as in 1987, though that might have something to do with the fact that it has no use for one. Then again, maybe it's onto something. We decided to list a few bands that make us wish they had no use for a name too.
Cute Is What We Aim For
If so, how do you feel about where you ended up? It certainly ain't cute.
String Cheese Incident
Seriously, this moniker should be enough for every band to abandon the use of a name for the rest of time.
Does the whole band have emphysema? They really should get that checked out.
The Devil Wears Prada
If it came before the movie, the name is stolen from a bad book. If it came after the movie, the band deserves to get its collective asses kicked by a chick wearing Prada heels.
New Found Glory
Used to be A New Found Glory. The name was no better with an indefinite article.
What's ironic: These Irish boys sold themselves as straight.
But monkeys don't live in the Arctic ... oh, wait. We get it. It's still dumb.
If you want to freak out your Baptist parents, tell them you're going to see Butthole Surfers tonight.
Atreyu, Mogwai, the Ataris
Yep, we all lived through the Eighties too. It's time to let go.
The sound of Andrew Ridgeley's and, more recently, George Michael's careers hitting rock bottom.
