A.V. Club calls out
the year’s most egregious offenders….
By Fred Mills
Those astute culture vultures over at the A.V. Club are at
it again, and this one’s a corker. On a scale of 1-10 of awesomeness, I’d have
to say this one also goes to “11” – if nothing else, just for the sheer
tenacity involved in keeping track of “the worst and funniest” band names they
came across this year.
Their official “winner”? Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head (pictured, above), from Seattle. Big ups to the Nat crew!
It’s a pretty huge list, so go to the site and take a look
at the entire thing. But for my money, some of the best picks are as follow:
Metal – (tie)
Terminally Your Aborted Ghost, Cemetery Rapist
Nerd Names – Druids Of Huge
Emo – Your Kisses
Funk – Weapons of
Truth In Advertising – Shitty Shitty Band Band
Hippie-Sounding Nonsense – Fragyle Vibes
Hey, We Smoke Pot! – Post Mortem Bong Hit
Whores, Sluts, Pussy
& Bitches, Inc. – Gestapo Pussy Ranch
First Person – I
See Hawks In L.A.
F-Bombs – Fucked
By The State
Names & Trademarks – Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head
Movie/TV References – Previously On Lost
Wha? – A BIG YES…
and a small no
Just Plain Stupid – We Go To 11
