Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

Silly band names as possible reasons of commercial failure

I nominate:

1.) Half Man Half Biscuit
2.) The Exploding White Mice
3.) Throbbing Gristle
4.) Chumbawumba
5.) Tonto's Expanding Headband

>Half Man Half Biscuit

They were actually quite good. A favorite of John Peel's.... with great lyrics such as "sometimes it's best to turn a blind eye":


They came for the palmists, but I wasn't a palmist, so I did nothing.

They came for the bungee jumpers, but I wasn't a bungee jumper, so I did nothing.

They came for the relexologists, but I wasn't a reflexologist, so I did nothing.

They came for the players' agents, but I wasn't a players' agent, so I did nothing.

They came for the martial arts enthusiasts, but I wasn't a martial arts enthusiast, so I did nothing.

They came for the Romos, I laughed.

They came for the fire eaters, but I wasn't a fire eater so I did nothing.

They came for Eamonn Holmes, and I think I'm right in saying I applauded.

They came for the camp TV chefs, but I wasn't a camp TV chef, so I did nothing.

They came for the Charles Manson fans, but I wasn't a Charles Manson fan, so I did nothing.

They came for Dani Behr, I said "she's over there behind the wardrobe"

Turn a blind eye, sometimes it's best to turn a blind eye

How about 'The The' who will get filtered out in google searches?

'The The' ...lol, I don't think their web strategy back in the mid 80's went as far as an optimized band name for Google...
