by the numbers

ok, so we all know there are a lot of crappy bands out there with numbers (#'s) in their names.
or their names are numbers.
or whatever.
this annoys me.
probably because most of these bands are of the "boy band" or "shitty 'mall punk' band" variety.
putting a number in your bands name is basically deciding right from the get go that your band is going to suck. i could sit here all day naming terrible bands with numbers in their names.
seriously, make a list. scary isn't it?
instead i'll do everyone a favor and name the ONLY bands with number names that do not, even remotely, suck.
here goes:
Nine Inch Nails
MC5
Death From Above 1979
2 Live Crew
Buck 65
Blackout 77 (ok, they kinda suck)
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five
the Jackson 5
the soundtrack to the movie CB4
Butthole Surfers

Woah, Nine Inch Nails new album With Teeth is out. It took some getting used to, but I approve. Still it didn't jump out at me like The Fragile.

i agree Daryl.
there are definently some awesome tracks (getting smaller had been kicking my ass for days) but it took repeated listens for me to appreciate it. and The Fragile didn't "jump out", that album is a lumbering behemoth of throbbing noise that tumbled over and crushed my puny, angst-filled bones.
bones!
