Why are band names always so horribly embarrassingly pretentious?

Anything you'd be embarrassed to put in a public email-address is essentially a band name.
>Radiohead
>Death Grips
>Neutral Milk Hotel
>Beach Boys
>The Cure
etc etc etc
>>
pretentious is a word that people use when they cant think of anything valid to say

First define pretentious and then tell us why they are pretentious names.

>My Bloody Valentine

What are these names pretending to be?

What do you consider some good band names, OP?

I got no problem with any of those names (although NMH is kinda too random and meaningless for my tastse)

The only band names that really bug me are when rappers take the name of someone else (looking at you Rick Ross) or the horribly overdone noun-the-verb fad

Why do bland, uncreative and inauthentic basic-tier lame people always call people who are objectively cooler and more effay than them pretentious?

People who aren't edgy are literally c├╝cks, I always notice this. Fuck off you fucking retarded spheres. Grow some edge you fucking orbs

plebs

Jeff repeatedly uses certain words in his songwriting, often because they have connotations of safety, security, sweetness, or what have you.

he's declined to talk about specifically why he chose NMH, but basically I'm pretty sure he's after the connotations that these words have of calmness and safety. it would make sense, given the role that music has taken for him with regard to being the outlet for his depression, and giving him a reason to keep going. you honestly couldn't find a less pretentious person than Jeff Mangum on earth. he's generally very sincere.
