Willie-O What not to call a band (140* d) RE: What not to call a band 08 Oct 09

If you're not in Canada, you probably don't know about the Polaris Prize, and that this year it went to veteran punk band Fucked Up.

Should have heard all the perorations of that name on the radio the next day...many (as in the case of mentions of another prominent Cdn band, Holy Fuck), called it "effed up". The CBC decided their announcers wouldn't say "Fucked Up" but that it was okay to run the sound clip "the award goes to...Fucked Up."   

There's also another long-running outfit in Toronto "Bunchafuckingoofs". BFG if you like.

Makes me sound pretty tame, which is how I like it.
I used to be in the Seldom Heard, after which I swore off self-fulfilling prophecy in band names. I like The Media Darlings better.
