What's in a band name?


In our Jan. 10 cover story, no less than 25 Colorado Springs acts — from the Haunted Windchimes and The Nobodys to Shiii Whaaa and Bullhead*ded — reveal the secret origins of their band names.

And while many of them are unpredictable, none are unpronounceable.

For the latter, we can turn to The Guardian, who printed a story a Jan. 9 piece called “The Most Unpronounceable Band Names Ever.”

Granted, their stories beat ours to press by one day — and even Colorado Springs’ Thegoodmorningaccordionterrorist can’t compete with international artists like SHXCXCHCXSH and Eximperituserqethhzebibšiptugakkathšulweliarzaxułum — but there's no question that our local bands have better origin stories.

In any case, we recommend reading both.
