I was hoping that story was going to say the sewing machine manufacturer had lodged a complaint.

Brother in the NME wrote:Lee: "Yep! So, they were threatening to sue us, they asked for some money - no, actually we offered them some money but they said no. So we were like right, go fuck yourself then, we’ll change our name. And so, ironically, we've added a ‘Viva’ at the beginning of our name. It means 'long live Brother', which was a big fuck you to them basically."
Pwned.

They could've changed their name to anything at all. They had that rarest of things, a second chance. They chose to change their name to Viva Brother. So in my book that makes them doublecunts.

I haven't gone through all ten pages of this thread, but a few friends and I think Aztec Camera was a horrible name for a band. Their music on the other hand is a different story.

This is a very good point. Eighties bands seemed to get away quite lightly with having terrible names, didn't they?

To be honest I hated "Somewhere in my heart" with a passion, I found this song so so so annoying.
"Walk out to winter" was good.

Maybe we've finaly reached the point where all possible band names made of real words have been taken and from now on we'll only see bands with made up gibberish words.

Unless it is actually a real word of course in which case I'm the one speaking gibberish.

It seems to be made up of bits of 3 different West Yorkshire towns. It's just such a clumsy name...

Cleckhuddersfax has been used for years for that triangle of towns, to be fair. It's still a rum name, mind.

My new band's name is Goole.

I was reading through this thread the other day, and then I happened across this on Collapseboard and had to bring it here. Not so much a shit band name as a shit band name:
