Stupid Band Names:

  • I have no problem with the word "Fun" as a band name, but I do have a problem with them not capitalizing the first letter AND using a period at the end, as most band names ARE traditionally capitalized (since they are often treated as proper nouns/names), and most of them don't end with punctuation. Submitted by: Newt Gingpoor
  • Yeah, I'm sure they are fun, but the name is too simplistic. If they want to sell CDs, they should change it to something synonymous like Hyperactivity or Frivolity. Submitted by: Lance Crackers
