Bands with names that lie
 
#1: The Polyphonic Spree

They're almost completely harmonically oriented, not polyphonically. BASTARDS!!!!!

Immortal Wombat 17-09-2007 20:26:30

#2: The Killers

Nothing was ever proven

King_Ghidra 17-09-2007 21:48:53

#3: The Liars

Pretty self-explanatory

dre*&!? 17-09-2007 21:50:11

But if they lie then the title is actually completely accurate. And if they don't lie, then their title makes them liars, so it is still accurate.

Lazarus and the Gimp 18-09-2007 05:17:52

#4 The Pet Shop Boys

They were journalists

novacane 18-09-2007 06:19:19

Prince
The Smiths
The Palestinians
Wings (indeed!)

it's all so misleading isn't it.

The sheer honesty of Limp Bizkit can only be admired. Not a hint of irony.

C.G.B. Spender 18-09-2007 06:32:53

The Who

Everybody knew their names

MoSe 18-09-2007 07:15:01

Everything But The Girl

...unless Tracey Thorn had some hidden secret....

Eklektikos 18-09-2007 16:04:20

#11 - The Dillinger Escape Plan

...a bit late, guys.

Debaser 18-09-2007 19:54:52

And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead

...so far no members of the band have committed even a single murder, let alone a Shipman-esque "Trail".

Immortal Wombat 18-09-2007 22:13:20

Half Man Half Biscuit

...actually all biscuit.

Dr. Dre

... never actually finished his doctoral thesis, but has been inspired by Brian May and is hoping to return to his studies in the near future.

#12 The Handsome Killers

They were neither handsome nor killers. At least as far as I know.

maroule 19-09-2007 07:47:58

the rolling stones

they stumbled at times but never rolled, and were all quite skinny

C.G.B. Spender 19-09-2007 08:13:20

I hope the name Butthole Surfers is a lie

Greg W 19-09-2007 10:14:22

I wonder if I should tell him. :cute:

Fergus & The Brazen Car 21-09-2007 09:41:52

The Quarrymen- not a chance. How many of them ever hacked at granite ?

Kitchens of Distinction- nary a sparkling hob or decorative Welsh dresser amongst 'em.

Stone The Crows- no mineral related deaths of members of the corvine family have ever been attributed to the group.

dre*&!? 21-09-2007 19:59:10

Stone Temple Pilots. To my knowledge they have never spent too much time in stone temples and certainly never flew them around anywhere.

I'll have to protest this one. They're merely encouraging people to biblically execute corvids. Just like protest organisation Stop the War doesn't actually stop wars, merely suggesting others do so.

There's no evidence any of the members were adherents of a Judaic or Old Testament grouping which advanced the notion of stoning members of the crow family.

Similarly, Chicory Tip never suggested that only the tips of endives or chicory should be utilised or consumed.

Vincent 22-09-2007 09:16:53

:shoot: xfear

Scabrous Birdseed 22-09-2007 19:01:49

The Bare Naked Ladies - very dissapointing to all teenage boys.

Debaser 25-09-2007 06:13:34

And their name's a lie1!!111!!!!ONE!!!111!

mr_B 25-09-2007 08:43:46

pete and the pirates.........they don't talk laaik pirates at all

Tizzy 25-09-2007 09:04:44

But they are pirates.. they AARRRRR!

*End Is Forever* 25-09-2007 09:23:50

If they were pirates, that would still be a lie, because the name implies that Pete isn't a pirate... ;)

Funko 25-09-2007 11:03:55

So: Pete and the Pirates -> 2 Pete's and no Pirates.

Caligastia 03-10-2007 18:47:00

#13 - The Black Crowes: None of the bands members are named "Crowe", and neither are any of them Black.

Immortal Wombat 03-10-2007 23:03:40

Tom Waits: renowned for his impatience

Vincent 04-10-2007 05:33:56

Kraftwerk - they consume electrical power

Greg W 04-10-2007 06:31:09

Eminem. He's not milk chocolatey at all!

Aredhran 04-10-2007 07:37:39

NTM

They never fucked your mom (or did they ?)

Funko 04-10-2007 08:08:55

NWA... oh no, that's pretty accurate.

Eklektikos 04-10-2007 11:02:08

Big Black - Very white, and very skinny.

the original name of that band was 'Shirley Temple's Pussy.' hence, STP. they improvised once they got a record deal. it can be seen the quality of their music that their lead singer is fronting for stone temple roses. or is it guns and pilots?

Scabrous Birdseed 04-10-2007 18:55:34

The Fray - actually they're totally devoid of action.

Shirley Temple's Rogerer?
