Even knowing nothing about a band, it can be possible to make good decisions about their music merely from their name.
Obviously, some bands scream the genre in which they reside such as The Exploited (punk), Soul II Soul (soul), Metallica (metal).
However, the name of a band can be a strong determinig factor of whether or not they are crap. To avoid crapness,
beware of the following types of band name:
i) A demonstrative assertion of importance bereft of irony:
Hypothetical examples: The Attitude, The Important, The Scene, etc.
Invariably, such bands will be a limp, lifeless, soulless, emotionless, tuneless, derivative mob of music business whores who think no-one else has heard the Beatles.
ii) Stupid, "random" collection of words or nonsensical phrases:
Hypothetical examples: Some Mothers do 'Ave 'Em, Are You Being Served, Does It Offend You, Yes, etc.
Invariably, such bands will be peopled by silly posh boys whose abject lack of personality and usefulness will not be masked by cack-handed attempts at quirkiness and whose music will sound like a self-expression class for ten year olds at a private school.
