Bands That Are Annoying to Google

Unless you’re willing to name your band Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra, it is difficult to avoid the dilemma of being hard to Google. Imagine pouring all of your sweat and energy into a band name, only to see your MySpace and Wikipedia pages stranded in some soulless Google Siberia below a corporation website or porn. Final Fantasy apparently ran into this problem many times; Owen Pallet recently lost the stage name in order to avoid confusion with the popular video game series.

A few bits of advice: No animal names, especially birds. Geography is not cool. Sports equipment, household tools, food items, body parts, and abstract emotional concepts are also dangerous Google territory. Finally, steer clear of any name with a hint of sexual innuendo. You never know what might pop up when you search for Girls, XX, or Junior Boys.
