seriously though like why are so many people such sensitive bitches that the band felt compelled to do this
Digging: Sufjan Stevens - Carrie and Lowell
My Last.fm is now fucked.
Digging: Lost Salt Blood Purges - The Voids We All Long For
Oh wow. The world is such an over-sensitive bitch.
I doubt people will stop calling then This Town Needs Guns, and I'm not changing my tags. Lastfm be darned
it's funny how DM bands seem to thrive off that kind of publicity, whatever, TTNG is a worse name, it'd have been better if they changed it altogether.
Digging: Tobias Jesso Jr. - Goon
I don't think it's that people are overly sensitive, I think it's that people are dumb and the band doesn't want to seem like they endorse violence or guns.
Yup. Welcome to the generation of epic, sensitive pussies.
When I was 12-13 my music idols killed themselves, were murdered and died of heroin overdoeses.
These days the kids cut themselves for Bieber smoking pot.
This is the generation that will destroy all of the hard work fought against censorship in the 80s-90s.
My Last.fm is now fucked.
Digging: Purity Ring - Another Eternity
it'd have been better if they changed it altogether. 
I don't think so. I think it's a smart way to handle the problem, without causing a huge rift (Last.fm users notwithstanding..).
This generation is pathetic. Seriously. I blame social networking / the media. I mean, if morons weren't so easily riled up and then wren't given the means to cause a national stir in a matter of seconds, this wouldn't be such a problem.
well this sux
I'm never gonna recognize them ever again
This is just illogical
retarded as fuck
Funny how we're discussing over-censorship in my bio class.
fuck. Still calling them This Town Needs Guns.
love your avatar zibel, love that short
OH MY GOD THIS GENERATION SO HORRIBLE
can we please realize that there have been fear-mongering idiots throughout time and it isn't exclusive to 2013
(this town needs guns is definitely a better name btw)
Digging: Vashti Bunyan - Just Another Diamond Day
So fucking stupid.
If anything, they should have pulled a Fear Before and changed their name to This Town. TTNG is just retarded because it's not even pronounceable, so everyone will still call them This Town Needs Guns...
You don't pronounce it, you say the letters, just as you would BBNG.
but like it was a shitty band name to begin with so whatever
I have no problem with this. TTNG is still This Town Needs Guns to me. Only thing that changes is the title on their T-shirts. Same thing with Harvard changing to HRVRD and MGMT.
the thing with this though
is that TTNG is still derived from "This Town Needs Guns"
Always hated their name for the same reason.
Choosing not to be associated with something shitty isn't the same as censorship you dumbfucks.
This is so fucking retarded.
That's no reason to change a band name. plus, it's a cool name, so I'm not happy with this
All name changes have to go through a mod. They should speak with Dev first.
Still gonna call them This Town Needs Guns. they didn't even change their name, they just acronized it. damn poserz
Digging: Jeff Rosenstock - We Cool?
This is just an acronym of their old name. Who the hell still won't call them This Town Needs Guns?
"Still gonna call them This Town Needs Guns. they didn't even change their name, they just acronized it."
this town needs waterguns
People might confuse this with TNGHT
Digging: Moderator - The World Within
Tittys N' G's
Officially a pussy band.
that is really gay
Digging: Andy Stott - We Stay Together
this town needs guns, and im going to give it to them
Digging: Sicko Mobb - Super Saiyan Vol. 2
I knew this was going to happen for all of the disclosed reasons.
Yeah, but seriously. These guys should not be afraid of their name being mildly controversial. It's not even a direct political statement. Didn't Massive Attack do something like this, too?
