The thing is though, the band name REM, has nothing to do with Rapid Eye Movement.

They chose REM, and might not have even known that it sttod for something.


WORST: Live - my second favourite band but I don't like the name...it's just silly and always makes answering questions awkward.

"Whose ya fave bands?"

Me: "Live, U2, REM, Stone Roses"

"Live? What do you mean Live? Who when they play Live?"

Me: "No mate that is the name of the band. Live"

"Ohhhhh ok"

frustrating....


Other bad band names:

jet
the vines
the hives
the strokes
the frames
the streets (even if it is just a bloke)
rolling stones
the who

LOL, odd, I've never experienced that whenever the band Live is brought up in conversation, but yeah, that does sound like it'd be a pain (so if that happens with Live, I can only imagine what it was like for people who were fans of the Who or Them when they first started out).

I heard that R.E.M. got their name by flipping through the dictionary, and wherever they stopped, that was what their band's name would be.

I vaguely remember this from the Wonder Years.

First person: You're going to see who???
Second person: Not the Who!!! I said The Stones!

I'm not sure it's the best band name, but The Rolling Stones may get the title for most appropriate.

And this one isn't necessarily a bad name, but it's an odd one nonetheless: the Butthole Surfers. That just projects so many disturbing images...

Angela
Funny you mention the Butthole Surfers straight after, as the Limp Bizkit album isn't named thus because of food.. You are familiar with gross sexual references? I dont want to smut up the thread, but it's not about um...food..
