What band is your favorite (or least favorite) bad named band. I mean some bands have weird names you have to figure out, like Toad the Wet Sprocket was a skit by Monty Python, Hootie and the Blowfish is 2 friends of Darius Rucker that got nicknamed because of how they looked. Now if you're thinking "Cito, why do you not mention Captain and Teneille?" Well that's a ridiculous GIMMICK (that's another blog where we will find the flaming lips, and the Beegees...) now as much as I like them, The Guess Who are on my list. That was purely intentional...Randy knew what he was doing (I assume he made the name.) Now some bands names are so bad they are good, like Deep Blue Something, they were thinking of the name and said "deep blue...something." Pretty simple, right? Or Puddle of Mudd...their practice space got flooded, but The The, there's a stupid name (good music though...) trying to out do The Band (named because they were a backup band to many artists before taking to their own...so FAIL, The The.) While we are on names, isn't it cool how some bands get their name? Like Genesis for example, their first gig was at a house that someone Peter Gabriel knew from bible school owned, therefore "Genesis" was born.
Well that's all for tonight, tomorrow I might do another special blog...maybe something on Thin Lizzy? Keep hitting the HIGH NOTES!!!
