Well… “sexy” might be a stretch. But we try to keep things positive here. Just go with it for now and we’ll fix it later.
Just like in the previous round, the highest scoring names were Toucan Cher and Bodega Sushi. These two look like they might face each other in the finals, which doesn’t bode well for my favorite, Clang Thwack.
C’mon, Clang Thwack! You can do it!
(mt58, better have the despondent Billie Joe Armstrong picture ready to go.)
“OK, V-Dog…hang on a sec… I’ll take a look and see if I can find it.”
There are a couple close races:
As of this writing, Inferior Consumer Goods is a single vote ahead of Lips Like Chicken. Likewise, Complicated Hair is beating Secular Saint by one.
I’m pretty sure those last two sentences have never been written before.
We’re losing our two primate-related names, Cash Monkey and Monkey Puppet. That’s too bad.
Epic Pickle is, well, epic, so it deserves its win. I’m not so sure about Functional Irritants; it strikes me as significantly less epic. But it was a close race.
Last week, I mentioned that the lovely Ms. Virgindog said most of these names were terrible, and I said that’s the point. She had a week to think about it and came to recognize my brilliance. A lot of famous band names are bad.
The Beatles is a weak pun.
The The is heavy on the definitive articles.
Panic! At The Disco can’t even put the punctuation in the right place.
At a certain point, however, you forget what a band name means, and just say it.
We don’t think about insects when we say “The Beatles.” We’re more likely to think about “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band…” and come to think of it, that is actually a pretty good band name.
So vote for our band name here, and then we’ll all forget what it means when we become rich and famous with our debut hit, “Maj. Cumin’s Speed Dating Association Band.”
Which is not at all a Beatles ripoff.
So, let’s get busy: If you’re reading this: voting is open NOW!
As always, pick your favorite in each pair and may the best, or worst, name win.
(Occasionally the server tally code misbehaves, and you might at first see “zeros” in the voting. Just refresh the page, and the vote counts will render.)
This voting round ends: This coming THURSDAY at 11:59PM – US EST (3:59AM Friday GMT.)
A handy little clock is provided below.
Who will be the winner?
Vote and help decide!
