Do T.H.E.S.E. bands annoy you?

Recently there have been several new bands such as W.E.T. / H.E.A.T. / N.O.W. / H.A.R.D. for example and I have to say they're really starting to annoy me.

 

It's all fine and fun when they're new releases and all, but trying to search for these CDs at a later date using search functions just doesn't work consistently and it creates anger. Plus it's annoying to type. I don't even think any of them are acronyms either apart from WET, are they? They just seem to do it to annoy people.

W.A.S.P.

Yeah, that was the only old school one I could think of. I think some clowns did this - K.I.S.S. but they were freaks and everyone knows it's just KISS.

 

W.A.S.P. is an acronym for something isn't it?

W.A.S.P. = We Are Sexual Predators...so I've heard

lol. That's awesome. I always thought it was something to do with Satan. Something along the lines of We Are Satan's People perhaps? Who knows. I do like We Are Sexual Predators, though.

Yep, very annoying. Seems like bands trying to be clever, but doesn't work imo. Yes, W.E.T. might be an acronym of the founding bands' names, but it's a rubbish name. And as you say, really hard to find on eBay, Amazon, etc. Also a lot of hard rock and AOR bands who have one-word names that are quite common words and release self-titled albums. I'm waiting for new rock releases like The - The, And - And, On - On, etc

You would if you searched for the CD on eBay and got 600 results, most of which were R 'n' B drivel... ;)

Most of these are Frontiers associated releases. I wonder if someone from Frontiers has just opened a page from Playboy magazine and picked a random word? Wouldn't be surprised if the next one is I.N.S.E.R.T followed by F.I.N.G.E.R then A.N.U.S then S.N.I.F.F etc. Gotta love those Italians.

Try typing in the band name AND the cd title and you shouldn't have any probs ;)

Didn't help much in looking for Empire - Empire, or wading through the hundreds of All Saints CDs searching for the Saints & Sinners CD.

 

BTW, LOL re I.N.S.E.R.T., etc. If there really was a band called I.N.S.E.R.T. they would deserve success just for the name! Fnarr fnarr.

 

:quagmire:

Try looking for these in eBay and see how much fun it is...Newman S/T....Pride S/T....Trouble S/T.....it should be illegal to have an album title the same as the band name....

Back in the day W.A.S.P. supposedly stood for "We Are Sexual Perverts." Of course, the PMRC and the religious right who hated the band thought it stood for "We Are Satan's People"... after all these years, Blackie Lawless sez it stands for "We Ain't Sure, Pal"

But half of them are self titled! And trust me, typing in 'H.E.A.T. - H.E.A.T.' or 'W.E.T. - W.E.T.' does not make it easier. :lol:

 

Yeah, James & Dead Planet, totally agree about self titled CDs from bands with generic names too. Not much you can do about it, but I've found searching for Inside Out's debut, for example, to be a total write off. And Blind s/t - that was a f*cking nightmare.

Can't stand these guys -----> G.E.O.F.F.

 

I'm gonna beat Geoff to the punch with a take on an acronym for his name.

 

How about G.E.O.F.F. stands for God's Excrutiating Offering For Females

 

OK that's bad, real bad and so are all those bands names with acronyms.

:lol: Don't be so harsh on yourself, mate. I think that's excellent. If I try to think of one I know it will only pale in comparison to that.

Bands with generic names are also very frustrating to search for:

 

Europe, KISS, Cinderella, Firehouse, Rainbow, The Cult, All Ends, The Answer, Rage, Loudness, Thunder, etc.

 

I wonder if bands today think long and hard about creating more search-friendly names.

After looking at the reviews on HH, I thought about looking up Hawk - s/t on eBay last night ... for about three seconds.

 

:o

    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor. 
    • Not at all what I thought a band called "Days of Wine" would sound like; I was expecting something much more laid back. This could be awesome, though.  There have been many days of wine in my life lately. ;}
    • Days Of Wine | Facebook   The self-titled “Days Of Wine” is the upcoming debut album from DAYS OF WINE, consisting of close friends from the Oslo / Norway rock music scene. After years of playing in their respective bands, it was time to join forces to make a high class melodic classic rock album. All are reputed musicians from the major Melodic Hard Rock scene; superb songwriter / keyboardist Leif Johansen (21 Guns, Phenomena), singer Leif Digernes (Westpoint), guitarist Tom Sennerud (Stoneflower), drummer Geir Digernes (Sons Of Angels) and guitarist Jon Johannessen (Stoneflower, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom). Some friends also came by and contributed to some of the songs, i.e. brothers Gregg Bissonette (drums, David Lee Roth) and Matt Bissonette, (bass, David Lee Roth, Joe Satriani), Jon Pettersen (Ammunition), Lars Andrè Kvistum (Conception) keyboards, and Ronni Le Tekro (TNT) dropping some guitar. You can’t go wrong with “Days Of Wine”; this is classic, traditional melodic hard rock / classic rock from the Scandi factory. During Spring 2021, ten songs were recorded for the self-titled debut at Stable Studios, Oslo. The songs are based on the lyrics of Leif Johansen but musically grounded in the Classic Rock genre. Leading the charge is the melodic and “raspy” voice of singer Leif Digernes. To emphasize the classic rock vibe, all backing tracks were recorded “live” in the studio. With such astute and accomplished musicians, it couldn’t have been done in any other way. 01 – Seven Days In Love 02 – Devil`s Bill 03 – Spread Your Wings 04 – Healerman 05 – Like The Others (feat. Markus Klyve) 06 – Never Stop Believing 07 – Angels In Disguise (feat. Gregg & Matt Bissonette) 08 – My Last Kiss 09 – Paint The Sky 10 – Days Of Wine Leif Digernes: Vocals (Westpoint, Bronx, Stuntbandet) Leif Johansen, Bass, keyboards, Vocals (21 Guns, Phenomena, A-ha) Geir Digernes, Drums/Percussion, (Sons Of Angels, Stuntbandet) Tom Sennerud, Guitar, Vocals (Stoneflower, Diezel) Jon Johannessen, Guitar, (Stoneflower, Diezel, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom)
