I'm starting to feel bad for being a Q & Not U fan. Jesus.
i <3 the music board.
I read on my girlfriend's band's myspace that someone from 'Q without U' was also in her band, got all excited, realised it was a different band, got confused, and promptly forgot all about it. UNTIL NOW! :D

Someone on that thread proffered the name 'Homophones', but surely that will just get on the nerves of fans of the premier anti-gay band?
...which reminds me, apparently London band 'We Smoke Fags' have an interesting American following :''D
A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning. Pretty good name for a band I think.
Not as good a Gay Dad though is it.

the second result is a link to the wiki page on Richard Littlejohn :D
HOMOPHONE 4 LYF
with Jasta and Waldo the Parrot on the front cover, but with their heads on different bodies.
especially the Battles/Beatles thing.
It's basically the same thread everytime they jag something.
don't forget 'angry'.
I mean can band names be copyrighted or anything?
Unfortuanately the only example I can think of is Skid Row, which not only a shit Irish band featuring Phil Lynott and Gary Moore but also a shit American rock band.
The Charlatans and Suede both had American counterparts but had to change their names to Charlatans UK and The London Suede for US releases.
There had been a country singer or something who'd used the name years before but then copyrighted it when a series of porn videos came out with the name Suede. When Suede arrived that singer was surprised that people were wondering about their name and so put a stop to it.
I'm not sure about the Charlatans. I think it's a grey area and probably only becomes important if it's felt one is affecting the sales of the other. I think the UK Nirvana did attempt to sue Nirvana or something.
So I could feasibly steal any American band's name just by sticking my country or city in it somewhere!?
because I think it was the record label Verve that made them change their name not another band called Verve. I wouldn't have thought that there would be much confusion between a record label and a band but there you go.
THAT'S SO SOCIAL.
I remember having a dispute with Guntrip after he put one of these bands on at a show. I don't remember what exactly it was about, but I do remember that it didn't matter because they both turned out to be crap.
...hmm, maybe that was it.
What a bunch of numpties (those complaining).
"I watched your video and got really upset." Brilliant!
they probably feel the same way about this lot
complete with punk'd youtube link (for the benefit of xylopwn and shucks)
"...the name causes confusion and dissapointment and then anger"
nothing like po-faced cunts to brighten up a Thursday.
