I Guess That's a Band Name
 
Sandusky has released their debut single, "What I Need (featuring AJ Perdomo)," here.

Well, they certainly won't be featured on a Kidz Bop compilation.

Ryan Gardner 09/27/12 04:40 PM

Song is incredibly bland

incognitojones 09/27/12 04:41 PM

In their defense, 'Serial Child Molester Who's Gonna Get Raped To Death In Prison' is already a punk band in Ohio.

anamericangod 09/27/12 04:48 PM

Very, very unfortunate name.

Personally, I would have gone with Tickle Monster.

I lol'ed. But seriously, why would they think this is a good name? Yeah, you might get the shock factor at first, but then you're still left with the shitty associations. That, plus, this guy doesn't have a good voice.

At least it's not The Menzingers.

RyanFTW 09/27/12 04:56 PM

So are they only allowed to play 21+ Shows?

ttttonyTM 09/27/12 04:59 PM

what's worse, the song or the name?

bobsheiskawy 09/27/12 05:01 PM

i mean, sandusky's also a city name...but they got it from neither.

song's decent, reminds me of a more rock-oriented green river ordinance.

TheRealJohnOC 09/27/12 05:04 PM

I so hope the whole band wears Penn State shirts live. If so, I'll go just for the goof.

Who Is Ryan? 09/27/12 05:09 PM

That name...


topsecret 09/27/12 05:09 PM

embarrassing name. will go nowhere.

YOUAREtehSCENE 09/27/12 05:17 PM

haha I read it AJ paterno

CastlesXClouds 09/27/12 05:18 PM

this blows.

Fuck I laughed out loud.

Siren 09/27/12 05:21 PM

Their facebook says they were launched in 2012. There is no excuse for such a shitty band name.

Holly HoX! 09/27/12 05:35 PM

nice name. douches. sooooo edgy.

"not because of the trial" don't be fucking stupid. you could have easily changed the name. oh, and by the way, the news on that whole case broke LAST YEAR (2011) and the band started this year. morons.

good luck getting a show.

That's not such a bad name...

wtfjaked 09/27/12 05:53 PM

pretty awful.

therookielot 09/27/12 06:15 PM

Nothing special is an overstatement. Though, this reminds of the times in high school when I'd think of what I thought were clever band names, so I'd sit on a purevolume domain...nothing ever manifested.

shwaz499 09/27/12 06:29 PM

i mean if child rape had a soundtrack...

XenoAbe 09/27/12 06:33 PM

Ugh. That's not even ironically funny.

about3fitty 09/27/12 06:50 PM

i can't decide what's worse: the terrible name of the band or this terrible song.

Archael 09/27/12 07:08 PM

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

what is aj doing with his life?

1. Sandusky, OH

2. It's possible they had the name before that Penn State business, but I don't care enough to find out.

Yeah, well you can just read their about and they give the "background" of the name.

Which is just a line of bullshit if you don't know how to read.

Ollie McKraut 09/27/12 08:11 PM

Name is not that offensive in my opinion; "Sandusky" applied to many different things long before Jerry, to include Cedar Point's location.

Pretty silly selection from among virtually unlimited options in 2012 though.

so thats why you change your name unless you want your band named to be associated with a sick monster of an individual

it'd be the same thing as having a band called Hitler, although not as offensive for obvious reasons

brook183 09/27/12 08:46 PM

Cedar Point is the bestest. I will not let that man tarnish its image.

cjudge90 09/27/12 09:02 PM

this is the suck. billie joe meets country meets dangerous summer meets a giant pile of shit.

UnderMyDreams 09/27/12 09:05 PM

Who cares where they say they got their band name from? There's a billion things to name your band; and this is their first song.

So, in short, fuck them.

I don't care enough to investigate. Based on the comments, the song isn't even good. Not sure how much of that is based on it actually being bad or bias towards the name, though.

As Ben 'Yahtzee' Crowshaw said, "Since the Internet is almost diametrically opposed to the notion of quality control, in recent years its become easier to just assume everything is shit until it can prove itself otherwise."

Not an exact quote, but you get the idea.

That has nothing to do with what I said. The quality of their music, or obvious lack thereof, is besides the point. They took this name knowing full-well of the disgusting situation and still went with it. Like others have said, they could have came up with any other name. These guys are dipshits. End of story. It's not edgy. It's not cool. They are going to get "cred" or people to book them at any venue (if that's even something they are trying to do).

I don't even know why I typed this much, because it's just so obvious that these guys are fucking tools for naming their band this. That's my opinion, I guess.

Ohaidere 09/27/12 09:51 PM

It's just a name. Get Jerry out of your minds people.

youenvydoug 09/27/12 11:05 PM

Song isn't good.

davidarechiga 09/28/12 12:36 AM

Not Terrible.

Well that wouldn't do you any good without a trademark, right?

Meh. I think people are taking this way too seriously. It's not like it affects your life in a negative way. If the name offends you so much just don't listen to them. It really is that easy, believe it or not.

maxvsmaradona 09/28/12 08:04 AM

My next project is going to be a ska band. "Gacy and the Dahmers"

Really?! Is it?! No worries, man. No qualms with you asking me to clarify my feelings on it. The band name is fucking stupid. The end.

ChaseTx 09/28/12 08:17 AM

Eh, ya'll are making way too much of the name. It's not that uncommon as a proper noun (name, city, etc.) and only has negative connotations because of the events of the last year. Within a couple years, it'll just be another name.

If the guy's name had been Hamilton, would you be offended by a band that chose that name?

Haha!!! I find it hilarious that you're this upset about it.
