Stone Temple Pilots Is A Stupid Name Too

It's Saturday (duh)....and I'm looking through my CD collections, coming across bands like Stryper, Whitesnake, Pearl Jam, Matt The Hoople....and the following STP. I'm realizing that there are a proverbial buttload of crappy band names out there. I did a post a few weeks back about Porno For Pyros and how that name was retarded. But they aren't the only ones, they aren't even the worst of the bunch. As if the band names weren't stupid enough, the WAY they arrived at these names is just as stupid. It's Saturday...why not talk about something I love...Music and how stupid celebrities are? Agreed? Agreed.

Let me just preface this with this...I love STP. Always have, always will. Scott Weiland is a smacked out little slice of heaven. Now that that is out there, what the hopped up fuck where they thinking? Rumor has it that a member of the band...nobody knows which one because whoever the brain child was behind this rationale won't stand up and be counted...but rumor has it that a member of the band was really diggin on the STP car crap bottles. Yup, that's it. that's the big story. They liked the way this looked:

WOO! That's hot...let's name our band that...STP. Hells yeah! We're not talking about mental giants here...the majority of the band thought getting addicted to heroin and writing lyrics like "I am smelling like a rose that somebody gave me, cuz I'm dead and bloated..." was a good idea too. As you can deduce for yourself, these probably aren't the guys to go running to for logical Spock like decisions. If you think about it for a minute...Stone Temple Pilots would have been a great name for Grace Slick's band...had she not found the Jefferson for her Airplane. Very 60's Twiggy rock. Groovy baby, yeah. Aztec, myans, drugs, all the pretty colors. Just not the most fitting homage for a quad of cock-rockers writting songs like Meatplow and Sex-Type Thing.

So in conclusion...Scott Weiland is a heavenly little dopehead, who was in a great band with a stupid name that they should have given to Grace Slick...maybe that would have saved us all from We Built This City. Selfish bastards.
