Worst Band Name Spellings
The new April issue of Guitar One has one of their more interesting and funnier lists, this one ranking The Top 10 Mizspelled Band Names.
I always wondered what the appeal was for playing around with the spelling of band names. Especially if they are not even puns (a la The Beatles).
The article says the whole fad took off in the 80's with hair metal bands!
So here's what their ranking of the worst is. There's gotta be a ton more we can have fun with.
10. Mercyful Fate
9. Black Crowes
8. Redd Kross
6. Lynyrd Skynyrd
5. Stone Poneys
4. Nu Metallers (Trapt, Staind, Puddle of Mudd, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit)
3. Hair Metallers (Ratt, Stryper, Enuff Z'Nuff, Megadeth, Motley Crue, Jackyll, Wild Boyz, Trixter, etc.)
2. Def Leppard
1. Led Zeppelin
