Melvins Discussion / Band-inspired band names
« on: March 04, 2012, 03:23:33 PM »
Personally, I find it a bit lazy and boring to name your band after another band (although I guess it's pretty flattering). Boris is a great song and I like the band just fine, but surely they could've come up with something else. I think there's a band out right now called Louder Than Love. I like that album and all but that is just lame.

***** Fuck, I just remembered Halo of Flies. I smell a banning! Don't do it, Haze - I love the band and that ain't no heartfelt shit. *****

Anyway, there's some band called 2:54 that I hadn't heard of and still know nothing about. I guess I'll look them up after this. Here's a quote from an article in The Guardian:

The band name comes from the exact point in the 2006 Melvins track A History Of Bad Men where according to Hannah the bassline becomes both "doomy and dreamy". It's fitting, marking the point where two very different styles come together.

I suppose that's as good a reason as any to pay homage to something with a title. Any other band names you can think of that come from another band? Keeping it Melvins-related, I would have to guess Buzz-Oven but I have no idea what they're all about.
