HAHA! Reminds me of a thread I started to collect funny advertising terms about instruments. Were you around then? Got deleted in the last Off-Topic Lounge holocaust.
I noticed an ad once for a snare drum that had "crowd-cutting backbeats." I thought it was strange, the idea of assaulting your audience, so me and my band mates have been coming up with others like:
"Audience-decapitating cymbal crashes"
"Stool-softening tom fills"
"Ear-impaling rim shots"
"Nose-hair-curling tabla solos"
"Aura-bleaching sitar solos"
Now we can add ""Cornfield-leveling sound output" and "Rodent-exterminating volume."
People added a bunch more and I wish I still had the list.
