The other night, Jimmy Eat World tweeted about the importance of slowing down to think before you act... specifically when it comes to band names.

NME helpfully collected a list of other bands who have ALSO expressed some regrets about the name they picked, and there are quite a few ALT artists on there - like Arctic Monkeys, Smashing Pumpkins and Foo Fighters. One of the bands even took a shot at Radiohead for their name a few years ago. Clearly performing and selling merch with a choice you regret can lead to stress. It's not too late to make a smarter choice, future bands!
