Good Band Names – Meat is Poison

Good Band Names – Meat is Poison

Name: Meat is Poison

Genre: Glam Rock

Bruce Willford and Mel Gleeson, along with a rotating drummer and synth player, travelled the country for thirteen years, from 1973 to 1986, performing strange covers of 60s Anti-War songs and classic Rock-and-Roll songs. They never actually had an album produced, and their names were likely made up for their band, so we may never know anything about the band except from eyewitnesses.

Name: One Black Chick

Genre Indie Folk

They’ve been around since 2010, jamming away with their acoustic guitars about life in the modern-day Southern Appalachians. The band has gone through many changes in lineup, with only Becca White remaining as the permanent lead singer, but no matter who is currently in the band, there has to be exactly one African-American female in their group, usually on drums, though occasionally as the co-lead singer, like when Hannah Kline headlined the group in October through December of 2014.

Genre: Pop Punk

This band lasted exactly one year in the spotlight– 2005. Its first hit single, “Dying to Treat You”, hit number 34 on the charts, and was featured in the end credits to the modern-day “Streetcar Named Desire” remake. But nobody was ever able to find out the names of any of the band’s members, and their first album, “Touched and Tortured”, was available only through Myspace. Their Wikipedia page has gone untouched since 2010.

Genre: Swedish Folk Metal

Their lyrics are nigh incomprehensible over the music and they have only sold six copies of their albums on bandcamp.com since 2004 but they keep releasing an album once every three months anyway. They are known in the folk metal scene mostly for their song “Aryan Bar Mitzvah” from their album “How Hard Do I Need to Fuck!” in 2009. Despite being Swedish Folk Metal, they are all Americans.
