Re: The death of Rock n Roll?
The internet has killed band names. In the 90's when I was first starting bands we could name ourselves whatever we wanted (we in fact named ourselves "The Wanted") and not worry if anybody else outside our town had the same name. Now with the internet I can see immediately if any other band has our name. So instead of "The Wanted", of which I am sure there were hundreds, we would have to come up with something completely original that no other band on the planet has.
Hence we get bands like, iwrestledabearonce and Five Finger Death Punch. Although I still say Korn is the worst band name in history.
