"Mommy, What's a Fuck Button?": An Orgy of Ungoogleable F-Bomb Bands

"Mommy, What's a Fuck Button?": An Orgy of Ungoogleable F-Bomb Bands

What's in a name? For a band, everything.

Whether a band has an incredibly fitting name (Lair of the Minotaur--so metal!), or a terrible moniker, (We Were Promised Jetpacks: great band, awful name), bands' names are brand names. So when a band drops a nice fat F-bomb in their name, you have to respect them a little bit.

The F word can be both a blessing and a curse, though. On one hand, it represents a band's iconoclastic nature, and gives off a damn-the-man vibe. But on the other hand, it obliterates any chance of going big. Starfucker and Vagenius know all too well the pains of having great but NC-17 names. Fuck Buttons, however, have become relatively notable (Pitchfork wants to have their babies) despite having a name that would be embarrassing to discuss with your grandmother. The duo will psyche-out the Echo tonight, supporting their newest album, Tarot Sport, but they aren't the first to F-up their band's name.

In honor of these intrepid mofos, we present to you some of the finest effing bands in the universe.
