    Probably because most interesting few-syllabled band names have been taken? There's a LOT of bands out there across the genres. I'm sure it's pretty difficult to come up with one that sounds good and hasn't already been taken.

    Just change the letters of the name of one of the great innovative bands of your genre. Daath did it.

    Personally I think I'm gonna go with Brrzm.

    You forgot The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza (or whatever the bloody fuck it is)

    I really dislike when several words are crammed into one as the band title. iwrestledabearonce? Fuck that with a pointy stick.

    I'd like to break every one of their teeth for naming their band something that fucking retarded.

    The Original Slowhand and The Evil Minions kick ass. I don't care how long their name is.

    No its not. Its fucking teenage faggotry as is any of these stupid kinds of band names. It's the whole faux-tough/evil/-core thing. Fuck em all.

    YES! I really fucking hate those longassonesentencenamesthatjustreekoffagness..btw i googled iwrestledabearonce and was completely shocked that was a real bandname, i thought you just made it up!

    The -core phenomena is the new glam metal of the 2000's I'm tellin ya! and yes glam metal is gay.
