Twizted are far from nu metal.


Hm, I tried searching "tw1sted" on both wikipedia and google, and all I could find for a band was Twiztid, which is a hip hop group. I swear I remember reading about a nu metal band with a similar name in one of my old guitar magazines when nu-metal was all the rage.

Yeah they're the only Twizted I know of. I think they're part of that Insane Clown Possey bunch of bullshit.

Isn't Twizted that couple of freaks who sided with Insane Clown Posse? Pure shit, whatever their name.

Subway to Sally might be one of the worst.

I have some iwrestledabearonce on the IPod and had it playing in the car the other day and when my wife asked who it was, the answer nearly made her drive off the road from laughing so hard.

Mainly these new super colorful fun metalcore bands have shitty names, like iwrestledabearonce, we butter the bread with butter, eskimo callboy and the bunny the bear.

Also, there is a black metal band called 'Furze' which is unintentionally funny cuz 'Furze' means 'Farts' in german. You can imagine how ridiculous it seems to listen to some grim cold kvlt shit which is called farts...

Cunttlefish. It's just too hilariously bad. Accidentally came across them on the latest additions to the archives bit a while ago and I haven't forgotten them since. I haven't got a clue what they sound like!

KEYDRAGON!!

Seriously. This is... beyond words, as is the band. They make for some (unintentional I'm sure on their behalf) great comedy.

Aborted Christ Childe,I hate all those over the top satanic names and I think this one takes the cake because they include intentional misspelling.
Also Acid Enema or any of the other dumb ass over the top death/black metal band names I wont even bother checking them out which is a shame cause I'm sure I'm missing something good.

Keydragon is truly indescribable. The music is far worse than the band name, however.

Because in Russian language too many differences from other european languages, there are many funny things in band names for russian speaking listeners. For example:
MORDA - morda in russian means face of angry, homeless or dumbass people
NAHUI - nahui means fuck off))
GRABAK - it souns almost like Grobak, grob means coffin
GORGOROTH - sounds almost like ogorod, in russia it means place near house where your parents grow vegetables, that's why in russian internet a lot of demotivator where you can see Pest of Infernus with tools to cultivate the ground))
LOCH VOSTOK - very strange name, because loch means loser and vostok means East.
Thnx you for attention, this was a short lesson of russian language)

It's just so cheesy and cringeworthy. Having a basic diploma in Latin I can't help myself when I see names like this. Plus,it doesn't have that ring to it if you know what I mean. It isn't fun at all to say Infinitum Obscure.

And GWAR is an awesome name, Nhor!

It's a cheesy name to be sure, but not particularly cringeworthy when compared to Edguy, Bongzilla or Axegressor, let alone those genuinely terrible "humorous" names .

Necrophobic was stupid as the name of a song and is stupid as the name of a band.

The Now Noise! is awful. Sounds like it should be hip-hop, not Death Metal.

Calm Hatchery - Great modern DM band out of Poland, but for the life of me I have no idea what the name is supposed to represent. Their music is far from calm.

I like these guys but I constantly think clam hatchery.

Btw Krisiun is an awesome band name. It refers to the Crisiun Sea or Crisiun Mare on the moon. The deepest and darkest crater on the moon. It is visible from earth with the naked eye as a dark spot. It definitely has a killer meaning when taken into context; a dark abyss. Fits Krisiun's music quite well.

any band name including words like 'anal', 'penis', 'cunt', etc, supposedly devised to scandalise people are terribly immature and retarded, and if used to produce a humorous effect, are pathetic and a blatant case of bad humor...

Anal Cunt must be the worst band name ever then.

...and it's pretty close to it.

EDIT: Speaking of which.

I never liked that band name either, but it's still better than Love Pork.

What's wrong with Necrophobic? It sounds cool, and it basically means "afraid of death". Nothing bad about that, if you ask me.

Thanatophobia is the fear of death, whereas necrophobia is the fear of the dead.

I've always had a strong dislike for the name Necrophagist. I like the band, but the name is terrible because everyone calls them NEcro phagist rather than NeCROphagist

Not really metal, but I hate the name 'Turbonegro'. It just sounds wrong

Well, I can't really think of a truly horrible name, the worst ones just sound 'lame' to me. If considered somewhat 'metal', the worst names belong to the metalcore/deathcore group. There's a local band called Sex Tragedy, that just fucking sucks haha.

Interesting you pointed that out. I actually started out pronouncing it the second way when I first heard of them, but was told on a couple occasions that the first way you wrote is actually correct... Anyone care to shed some light on this?

If Godflesh is a bad name then fuck everything. Also, because it has been mentioned so many times, I will go ahead and agree that Strapping Young Lad is an awful name, fitting for a completely annoying band.

I think some of these are pretty bad:

Wykked Wytch (hate bands with bad spelling on purpose)
Mudvayne (think it just sounds stupid)
Breaking Benjamin (seriously???)
Gloomy Grim (just sounds so childish and cliche)
Old Man's Child (just sounds so stupid to me)

These are all I can think of at the moment.

At least at the moment of this name's creation, they were probably expecting how people disappointed with the band will intentionally misspell it.
