Band Names are Silly

And so are the names of most songs. Is there a band out there that named their songs in such a way that they make up a paragraph or story or something? If not, the world is sadly, sadly missing this vital artistic expression. Like, that's another thing that sometimes bugs me about listening to KEXP, just how nonchalant everyone is about spewing forth this mish-mash of random words strung together and how ridiculous it all sounds. Completely ridiculous, pompous, and that word that means you're trying too hard to be artsy, you poser you, but I can't think of it at the moment.

I think it just seems worse right now because bands have outrageously long and high-fluting names that just add to the confusion. Band names should be limited to 3 words. The fewer the better.
