I’ve been a big fan of music since childhood and, therefore, have become accustomed to the oddness of band names. I remember looking at album covers of Jefferson Airplane and Abba and thinking their names were so strange and, yet, mysterious. I liked them and still do. However, today, I imagine at least one of them has made it onto a list of worst band names.
I mean, The Band already exists. The most logical name for a band is taken.
It’s popular to name bands after their founders and/or lead singers, and, why not? Even though it does come across as ego-maniacal, what are the options?
the band's name comes from the bar (Molly Malone's) thatfaithfully supported the band from the very beginning, "We used to playthere every Monday night and we felt like we were flogging it to death, so wecalled the band Flogging Molly.
Fun. – Whenever they come on the radio I always say to my girls, “Hey! It’s fun period!” Yeah.
