I can't decide if this is a terribly inappropriate and offensive name, or an incredibly gutsy and clever one.
Circle of Dead Children.
Blow yer' harmonica son
i could easily see someone seeing it as just another pseudo-shocking gore name, though.
they received their share of backlash in the early days, considering they were mostly playing hardcore punk shows during incredibly PC-crybaby days...
i heard mention of it a time or two, but it's been about 10 years now and i've smoked a lot of pot since then.
i do know that it was somehow related to each dead baby being from a different country and wrapped in their respective nation's flag, or something along those lines.
knowing joe (their singer), it's quite likely that the significance is that regardless of your cultural origins the future is bleak.
Ok here's a few dumb ones that spring to mind:
Little Casear - might be good to make sure you don't share your name with a crappy pizza chain.
Ugly Kid Joe - I am not giving friend treatment to these guys. I worked with their original bassist, who had the smart sense to leave the band for a straight job right before they hit start on their 15 minute timer. The name was a response to another lame band name, Pretty Boy Floyd. Ok, PBF was a D-list band, why bother making fun of them?
Cycle Sluts from Hell - I don't know that they were ever supposed to be taken seriously, but the name insures that they weren't.
Letters to Cleo - ok, this is like my major guilty pleasure band, I think they'd be less of a guilty pleasure if their name weren't so lame because I know many, many friends that all not-so-secretly love this band.
