Top 10 Most Misleading Band Names and Music Artist Stage NamesMetal_Treasure Misleading band names /stage names give you wrong expectations and impressions:
1) about their country of origin - a band called 'Birds of Tokyo' is not from Japan
2) about the type of music they play - a band called 'Miss May I' plays metalcore
3) about anything else - the band members of 'Barenaked Ladies' are not hot chicks, and so on.
The Top Ten
They are males, there's no pornography. They are an alternative rock band from Canada. - Metal_Treasure
The name perfectly embodies their music--tongue-in-cheek. - PetSounds
Haha, this is really funny! - Metal_Treasure
I could easily trick a Country fan to listen to these guys.
Especially if they cover Pantera's Cowboys from Hell. - Metal_Treasure
I thought they were japanese
A great stoner rock band. Their name actually came from singer Josh Home discovering the Polish death metal band Vader, and referred to them as "The Eagles of Death Metal" - ryanrimmel
Thanks for this addition and explanation, Ryan. But now I have to find the band with the female drummer that disappointed me - haha, I don't remember any word of their name... - Metal_Treasure
Ahh, wasn't it a band with a hot female drummer?
About 2 years ago I checked out a band that I expected to be death metal but it wasn't. Maybe it was this one. Thanks to whoever added it. - Metal_Treasure
This US band plays neo-classical metal, one of the most demanding and well structured music genres. I have no idea why Marty Friedman and Jason Becker named their band Cacophony. Marty Friedman and Jason Becker are among the most talented guitarists of all time. - Metal_Treasure
Pedro is a Spanish name and I expected a comedy flamenco band or something like that. This band name doesn't speak metal at all but they are a thrash metal/metalcore band from Canada. - Metal_Treasure
Geez, those metallers are so well mannered...
They are an American melodic metalcore band. - Metal_Treasure
Tell me about it I wish he would be silent because Watch Me was just annoying and awful - christangrant
A band from the United States. - Metal_Treasure
From this band name I expected country music. - Metal_Treasure
Molotov sounds very Russian because Molotov is Russian. But this band even sings in Spanish (song - No Manches Mi Vida) - Metal_Treasure
So are Brian, Roger, and John for that matter. Unless you are watching the "I Want to Break Free" music video. - Torchpost
Legible name spelling: I wrestled a bear once
From a band with this name I expected songs like Deer Season Fever by Lo-Brau, or Fred Bear by Ted Nugent.
It's actually a metalcore band from the USA. - Metal_Treasure
Power metal and speed metal from Germany. - Metal_Treasure
