Things that automatically put you off bands

Not the first time this thread has been created… but who’s counting.

I’ve noticed a few bands with names referencing other still very active and contemporary bands. I’m sorry “The Slow Show” and “Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever” but I’ll stick you your forebearers, cheers.

A PR machine that writes po-faced press releases for them.

Members taking on the bandname as a surname when they’re not The Ramones.

NME really fucking likes them.

Being here to rescue guitar music - either stating it or being declared as such - with some bottom of the range indie… Which kinda reflects the UK music scene asskicking and NME liking posts!

bands who attempt to fend off pigeonholing by citing a variety of influences despite sounding like the only album they own is by Joy Division.

related to the OP, and I’ve mentioned it before, but band names that are a really unsubtle reference to another piece of pop culture (i.e. Twin Peaks, Of Mice and Men, etc.)
