Jambands have Horrible Names

by -

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?

    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.
