Why the hell can't musicians spell?
« on: November 09, 2007, 12:25:05 AM »
I mean come on. I don't know about you, but shouldn't their name be spelled L-i-m-p b-i-s-c-u-i-t? Shouldn't that other band's name be LINCOLN park? I mean at least Britney has an excuse for her crappy spelling(In luv wit a stripper), but how can bands spell their names like that and still retain any modicum of respect for themselves? I mean, come on.

Yeah. Intentionally mispelling something to add a dash of flare to your name is just plain wrong. ;^)

Well, in that case, I guess we'll have to start calling the site "Riff Tracks".

Although, I do agree that excessive misspelling, intentional or not, can be quite obnoxious. I don't mind a different way of spelling a word in a band's name, but when all their song titles look like they were suggested by a thirteen year old girl obsessed with text messaging, that gets irritating, to say the least. :P

I bring "Beatles" to the table.  As supporting evidence I present groups like The Byrds and The Monkees.

Cutesy spellings are not a new thing.

Don't go anywhere near the tracklist for any of Princes' recent albums you'll have an aneurysm.

Well, in Rap, er Hip Hop (what ever it is) the Lyrics are spelled out in sooo much disarray, it's truly annoying to even try to decipher them!
