    Three Mountains kinda ugly, however, to read a banda name as Tres Mts. is kinda cool... what are the odds?

    Three fish kinda sucks, that is because, we, argentinians, refer to a person as a fish (pescado) when that person is an idiot...

    Good call. Can we also nominate them for worst album title of all time with "Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water"?

    Every band name is fucking horrible when you get right down to it..

    The quality of the music always makes the band name either respected or hated.. because just the name alone is always cheesy as fuck..
    None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe that they are free.

  • jambands always have the worst names. Phish, Umphrey's McGee, String Cheese Incident are all terrible. But I think Hoobastank might be the winner.

    They started off as the Hawks. When they toured with Dylan, everyone started referring to them (often disparingingly) as "The Band"...after that, they considered "The Crackers" or "The Honkies," but I think the record label had a problem with those, so they settled on "The Band"
