Something related to "Before Christ" or something against Christ no doubt.

They might change their name but that doesnt change the fact that they're a buncha wankers. Blue Oyster Cult called and reminded them they did it better.

They could be better than Blue Oyster Cult if they just used more cowbell.

"ghost (japan) is the better ghost"

i was gonna say something to the effect of this but probably something more like "sweet now they won't be confused with the japanese band" but now i won't seem as poignant so now i'm gonna leave it alone

Coulda made it lowercased 'ghost' and add an extra word to make it all one word: ghostsbeware. Adding a ! would be the key factor in becoming a huge success: "ghostbeware!"
