Some bands have strange pronunciations of their names, that aren't immediately obvious from their spelling.
Entries Beginning with T
pronounced as ta-LEE-ah
That's right, the "h" is silent. Also, an accent mark appears above the "i".
pronounced as ta-POW!
Yes, it rhymes with cow.
pronounced as Tee-eye
He's an alright rapper.
I like Chelsea Dagger by them.
That's right, it's not "point three-eight special" or "thirty-eight-hundredths special" (i.e., you don't read the .38 like a typical decimal); it's not even "thirty-eight cent(s) special" either. The band's name refers to a type of cartridge used in weaponry. Sometimes the band has written its name without a decimal point, so that no one is confused as to how to read the number.
pronounced as Three eleven
I thought it was three one one, some people might call them three hundred eleven. It's three eleven
pronounced as Three Oh Three
They just can't spell.
Like Newfoundland, which I always believed should be pronounced new-FOUND-land instead of NEW-find-lind...
Her last name rhymes with "dazzle". Not pronounced like the plant basil (which has a long-A sound).
KISS guitarist. I used to say it like "tayer". Now I feel stupid.
His "last" name is short for "Loco", which means crazy in Spanish.
The surname, which rhymes with "famous", can also be pronounced AY-mohss (rhyming with 'gross'), but it's still unemphasized.
The British one-hit wonder band with "I Eat Cannibals." While known in their native UK as Toto Coelo, they are known in the US as Total Coelo as to not be confused with the American band Toto (and possibly to avoid being sued by them).
Týr pronounced as tʰʊɪːɹ - Almost like "Tuh-eer"
Tom E Wylde
