Should a band own a name forever?


After answering a reader’s question about song lyrics it occurred to me that bands, especially the ones that suck, get to keep their names forever. And yet a crappy movie can easily be forgot and the title can get reused again and again. Case in point. “Twilight” was a movie in 1998 with Paul Newman and Susan Sarandon. Anyone remember? In ten years no one will remember the vampire movies either.

So, why should a crappy band with a cool name get to sit on it forever? Anyone remember Propaganda? Charlatans? Dope? Well the list could be exhaustive. I’d be interested to know other band titles that readers think should be back up for grabs.
