best emo/skramz band names

selected based on pretentiousness & word association hall of shame members at the end
1Sunny Day Real Estate

an early pioneer in the Unrelated Noun Phrase + Unrelated Noun Phrase category, also an early pioneer in the More Than Three Words category
2Christie Front Drive

this evokes the image of a skinny kid wearing a sweater-vest hanging out in the cul-de-sac of a suburb of some midwestern town
3Very Secretary

this just evokes the image of a sweater vest
4Everyone Asked About You

a vague sense of involuntary detachment, which is Emo As Hell
5125, Rue Montmartre

unequivocally the address of an old used bookstore where you and a beautiful stranger caught glimpses of one another but never crossed paths again
6On The Might of Princes

ancient crumbling buildings in decay, likely a metaphor for a relationship
7The Khayembii Communique

inspires a powerful sensation of remote obscurity; additionally, the actual story behind the band name is that they were once called the Karl Marx Band and came up with a name from the sound of the abbreviation K-M-B. communism is Skramz As Shit
8I Wrote Haikus About Cannibalism...

even more effective when properly stylized as iwrotehaikusaboutcannibalisminyouryearbook. most important factors here are: 1) haikus - a familiar yet unconventional art form and 2) yearbook - emphasizes youthful naïveté
9Sinking Steps...Rising Eyes

can't stress enough the importance of the ellipsis here, emphasizing the pause between the compound sections. stirs up an overwhelming sense of uncertainty and wonder
10The Spirit Of Versailles

again, revolutionary leftist politics = Skramz As Shit. choosing a non-American reference point also ups Skramz points
11I Would Set Myself On Fire For You

what it lacks in its uncomfortably conventional sentence structure it more than makes up for in the devotion of its oath
12Sed Non Satiata

latin for "but she is unfulfilled". use of another language very Skramz, use of a dead language even more Skramz
13Her Breath On Glass

the immediacy of the mental image is the big draw here
14Vi Som Alskade Varandra Sa Mycket

with proper diacritics, Vi som älskade varandra så mycket, swedish for "we loved each other so much". i'm not sure whether to allot bonus points for being a non-english name or deduct them because they're a swedish band. the inner council is having heated discussions on the matter
15Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate)

this is largely due to effective use of punctuation marks and lack of capitalization

another worthy entry in the bandnamesspelledlikethiswithoutspaces category. loading two pronouns in the name is a crafty move

here begins the hall of shame. taking a children's toy and slightly changing the spelling is lazy and Not Emo As Hell
18Neil Perry

this is obviously the name of a middle-aged british soccer commentator
19Baby Harp Seal

this is a twee pop band who released two 7"s on sarah records in the early 90's
20Vitreous Humor

this is a carcass worship goregrind band
