Things that automatically put you off bands


#1

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.


#2

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


#3

Improper haircuts.


#4

Not being a great bunch o’ lads


#5

Too much emphasis on giving the UK music scene a good kick up the arse


#6

No brass section.
No DJ “bringing it on.”


#7

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


#8

NME really fucking likes them.


#9

Aye this is why I’ve never given the jacksons a go


#10

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!


#11

Scarcity of donks on it


#12

Their music not being good!!!


#13

The use of the term “post punk” in describing them.


#14

When they compromise the structural integrity of my house.


#15

Maybe in OPPOSITE WORLD


#16

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.)

#18

Too empathetic


#19

stupid spelling (Alvvays, Chvrches, etc.) and no vowels too (PWR BTTM)


#20

Poor sexual conduct
