@gatz just mentioned the band !!!, pronounced “chk chk chk” over on the “It’s all the same” thread.
I’ve never listened to them because their name was so annoying. It’s like Does It Offend You, Yeah? – something incredibly pleased with itself, arch, punchable. Now, sewer rat might taste like pumpkin pie but I’ll never know cos I wouldn’t eat the filthy motherfucker. In the same way, !!! might be incredible, but I’ll never know cos I wouldn’t listen to them on purpose ever, just on the basis of that name.
What other band names are simply unacceptable? No ifs, no buts: too infuriating to even give the music the most cursory of chances. Not “a bit lame”. I’m taking instant non-negotiable shouts of “fuck off!”
