This is it. THE definitive list of crazy band names. They can be real ones, or they can be stupid ideas kicking around in your head. We can discuss the stupidity of each one untill the cows come home. I'll start it off - hear we go!!

my band has gone threw a few name changes... We were originally the 'Black Roses'. That didn't last because the person in our band that gave us the name decided to make a god damn band of their own... and because it was soo pointless... Then we played around and called ourselves 'The Fluffy Dawg Luvers'... That didn't last either. no one took us seriously... Then we called ourselves 'Zanthos' Army'... Uh, that didn't go well either... So now we are stickin to FDL. And it doesn't mean Fluffy Dawg luvers anymore...

the weirdest name i think i've heard and prolly the most criptic would prolly have to be our bands new name "fayceless" (pronounced face-less). our friends middle name is facye' (pronounced fas-eh) n he was bein a real prick so he "quit" (got kicked out of... *cough cough*) the band. he was a good as hell bassist, n so we jes used his middle name for the band name. as fayceless, but pronounced face-less (like i've already said). sounds stupid, i know, but hey it works.

posted by Cean Lakranski on Jul 11, 2003 05:51PM

Deicide doesn't mean killing a christian, it means killing a being of divine nature, like a god. Webster says it also refers specifically to the killing of Jesus Christ.
posted by Zach Beane on Jul 11, 2003 05:55PM

hmm... well that's what deicide talks about in their lyrics. "kill the christian." and "open the door jahovai you whore" and shit like that. plus they also talk about getten into heaven and killing christ, oen song for each heaven (cause christians believe there's 3 levels of heaven, 12 levels of hell... [or was it 9...] somethen like that, and a place called somethen like parthomethies or somethen, i'm not much informed on the christian beliefe system). i didn't really know the defenitive meaning of deicide exactly, all i knew is it meant killing of a christian (broadley). anywayz- yeah that's what they basicly talk about is killing christ n shiznit.
posted by Cean Lakranski on Jul 14, 2003 02:02PM

and correct me if i'm wrong about the whole christian belief system (you know, 12 lvls of hell, 3 lvls of heaven or some shiznit like that). i don't really know much about any religion, so correct me if i'm wrong

How about Phantom Buffalo, from Portland. These guys used to be called The Ponys until another band of the same name, which existed prior to them, forced them to change it. Clint, Cody, and Greg may have heard of them, since they are from Portland. Their music is far from typical (which is not a bad thing) and maybe a little strange, but they are a group of very talented musicians. I went to high school with 3 of them: Joe Domrad (Drums), Philip Willey (Guitar), and Tim Burns (Guitar).

One song you may have heard of from these psychedelic punk rockers would be "Hey, That's My Only Necktie." The Portland Pheonix often features articles about them.

My friend was in a band called "Better than Yesterday"
I convinced them to title their first cd "We sound better in the locker room at the salvation army"
their origional name was "Bad Year"

Screaming Monkey Boner (previously mentioned) used to sound like creepy circus music, but their later stuff sounds like what could only be described as "death metal swing"
