Porno For Pyros Is A Stupid Name



I just got to thinking...as you do, that there are a ton of really stupid ass band names out there. The name having no reflection on the music being produced, because I like some of the music. But dude, some of these names. Puddle of Mudd? Stupid. Smashing Pumpkins. Stupider. Porno For Pyros. Stupidest. What the hell? What was so wrong with Jane's Addiction. That was kind of a cool name.

The story goes that Perry Ferrell got the name while watching the LA riots on TV...and walking the dog. Beating his meat. Waxing his DeLorean. You know. wink wink nudge nudge. Because the logical reaction to a violent, horrific act of human defiance and anarchy playing out on the telly is to toss off. That's how they do it. "They" being the fucksticks in Porno For Pyros.

The stupidity doesn't just begin with the birth of the band. The name makes absolutely no friggin sense. Porno for Pyros. Wouldn't that be just like every other type of porn? I've seen my fair share of "Adult" movie sections and never once have I seen the Pyroporn catagory snuggled up with the Lesbian Nation or Chick With Dicks. They don't play well together. Don't get me wrong, if that's the way you roll. If you get off on watching people on fire or setting fires, or just by watching that cheesy Fireplace channel in cheap motels...hey, more power to ya. I just don't think there is a mass market appeal.

Now that I've said that, I'll probably end up eating my words when someone sends me a copy of Hot Flaming Coeds: Part 4...I'll just consider it an expansion of my Porno horizons. I would however think that the the aforementioned Porno for the Pyro would, in it's simplest form, and most convenient definition be just that. Setting Fires. And DVD's just don't play as well once soaked in lighter fluid.

But I do thank Perry for Lollapallooza. The freak.

Google should have a hay-day with this post. Heh.

So do tell, what do you think are some of the stupidest band names? I'm curious.

Two favourite dumbest band names- Bruno Gerussi's Medallion and Gay Bikers on Acid.

The first is for the story behind it. The band was bored and couldn't think of a name while watching TV and The Beachcombers was on. It stars, you guessed it, Bruno Gerussi as Nick Adonidas and he wears (drum roll please) a MEDALLION!

Gay Bikers on Acid? Who cares. Might've been Gaye Bikers on Acid. (who cares)squared.
