Jambands have Horrible Names

Honestly, I never wanted to reduce myself to this level. But, I believe that this is something that the live music blog should be all about.

I believe that a few of the jambands we all know and love have extremely horrible names. Now, some of them are horrible in the sense that you know they’re a jamband before the first notes ever come out of the speaker. Some are just horrible and that’s that.

Which jamband do you think has the worst name?

I'm the Editor. HOLLA.

    Truth be told, I didn’t want to offend anyone by this. I guess that some people probably wouldn’t want to hear that their band name isn’t that cool, but I just thought it would be funny. =]

    I think that the problem stems from the fact that a great deal of jamband players and fans are serious GEEKS (the kind that frequent Trekkie conventions. The first instance I noticed this was when I first heard a killer tune called, “Golgi Apparatus”…???!! I mean that’s got to be the most egghead song title I’ve ever heard. There’s even a Welsh (I think they’re welsh) band called Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci with a band name so wince-inducing I just assumed they were a jamband. Apparently they’re not.
    stupidest of all time though, has to be String Cheese Incident. There HAVE to be times that they regret naming themselves that. HAVE TO.

    I completely agree. I know so many people in this world that will never even give String Cheese Incident a chance, and it’s quite a shame actually. We’ll see; I’m sure someone will eventually trump them.
