So, My Morning Jacket. Some people here rave about them. I haven't heard anything by them, partly because I can't be bothered listening to a band with such a stupid name. Let's see how this goes.

So, the My Morning Jacket song wasn't so bad.

I might be more interested in hearing more of their stuff if their name weren't so appallingly terrible.

Straitjacket Fits is frankly the best band name I've ever heard.

Why?????? It's horrifying. Any band name with the word "jacket" in it is instantly awkward.

You're biased. It sounds like a rap collective from 1989.

What? Sometimes, you're a real fucking idiot, I hope you know that. And don't make any bloody sense. I mean, it's a funny band name. It sounds funny, and if you think about it, it's even funnier, and it's just good all-round.

Compare:

Good band names: Really great band names - Rate Your Music
Bad band names: Really stupid band names - Rate Your Music

Says a guy who used a band called Weezer in his last tracklist.

Not listening to a band because of the name is dumb. If you like the music, than go for it.

I'll agree with Split Enz because of the Z, but it's not too bad. Straitjacket Fits isn't bad.
