OMG! THE TIGER EMPIRE OF BEARS!
08/28/10 at 04:31 PM by mybreakingpoint
If I start a new band, that's what I'm going to call it.

Why?

Because it would be the hip thing to do, of course!

Has anyone else noticed that a significant, ridiculous, almost egregious number of bands lately have decided they need either the words "empire", "bear", or "tiger" in their name?

Simply do an artist search here on AP and see how ridiculous it is. Want it to look even more insane? Do an artist search on it-leaked. Type in one of those words in the artist search of either site and just shake your head in amazement.

Just to prove it further, here are lists of 20 ACTIVE bands with one of those words in their name.

‎1. Empires
empire! empire! (i was a lonely estate)
Collapse Under The Empire
Deep Sea Empire
The Empire Shall Fall
...Empires To Ashes
Holy Roman Empire
I Am Empire
Last Days of Empire
10. Rise and Fall of an Empire
This Is An Empire
Your New Empire
Assemble The Empire
Burning Empires
15. EMPIRE
The River Empires
Radio Empire
Beneath The Empire
Blank Page Empire
20. To Build An Empire

‎1. Tiger! Tiger!
Tigers Jaw
The Lady or The Tiger
Miniature Tigers
Paper Tiger
...Liars & Tigers
The Party Tigers
Tiger Please
Sayonara Tiger
10. Spring Tiger
Tiger Lou
Tiger Riot
Tigers on Trains
Tigerface
15. The Tiger Society

‎1. The Bear Cavalry

iwrestledabearonce

...Bear Hands

10. Grizzly Bear

Lonesome Bears

Panda Bear
15. polarOPPOSITEbear
Seabear
The Bear Romantic
Beartrap
Beardog
Boy and Bear

What the fuck?

What is it about these words that made a select group of people decide that it was hip and cool to have one of those nouns in their band names? I don't understand it.

But at least I know the formula to success. If I were to only combine ALL THREE of the words into ONE band name, I would instantly be a gigantic, hip success, right? Right.
