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


Geoff

Recommended Posts

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

To be honest I.D.O.N.T.G.I.V.E.A.F.U.C.K. as long as the music is good. ;)

 

:lol:

 

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

Writing A Sexual Poem.. :quagmire:

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?   
    • The boy who cried... "hallowed be thy name".
    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound! Watch the video "Distance Between us":    
    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
