It’s Official: The Kids Have Run Out Of Ideas

tdwp.jpgYou know, you want to believe in the next generation, and then you read through the AV Club‘s list of bad band names and find out there’s actually a band–based out of Dayton, Ohio, to be exact–that named itself after The Devil Wears Prada. Yes, really. What, was this the result of a dare, or a drunken joke that went too far? Either way, this should be a lesson to any aspiring musicians out there: If you’re going to wander down the chick-lit road for your band-name brainstorming, at least name yourself after Confessions Of A Shopaholic. It rolls off the tongue much more easily.

The Worst Band Names of ’06: The Final List [AV Club blog]
The Devil Wears Prada [MySpace]

  1. Josh Mock

    We are all well aware of the fact that it is a book; Chris, Daniel, and James were the members who decided on the name after hearing it from the book and everything. This was prior to the joinings of Jeremy, Andy, and myself in the band.

    After I read, the book, I was dissapointed. We all gave it our own meaning and then the book had something entirely different.

    Hahaha, poor thing. “Oh God, I joined this band, and… they’re into chick-lit! There goes my heterosexuality… ;_;”

    so the band names their band after a book they didn’t read?? awesome!

    oh shit, I used to tell a friend of mine how much I hated this band name.

    “We all gave it our own meaning and then the book had something entirely different.”

    Ha ha ha, how moronic. As the author of the A.V. Club post, this only makes me chuckle more.

    This is obviously horrible – and that shit-generic press photo only makes it worse (hello Third Eye Blind).

    But may I point out how HILARIOUS the rest of the Onion feature is. If only these fools had chosen something like:

    The God Damn Doo Wop Band
    Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza
    Curiosity Valentine

    And my absolute favorite:
    Au Revoir Simone
