Someone sent me this today:

it's a graphic of the influences drawn to come up with several Metal band names. Interesting.

I've seen this before. Why is Mercyful Fate a "pointless misspelling"?

Probably for the same reason that Korn is a "badass misspelling".

Considering that the amount of metal bands is massive, there's a lot of space for all sorts of names. Admittably, many band names have similar themes (religion, violence, nature, fantasy), but that's a rather small amount of metal band names.

"Actually foreign" band name category is really pointless though.

Mercy ---> merciful -- correct
Mercy ---> mercyful -- wrong
