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.

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.

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.

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?

What a dumb name and a dull band. They hyped the release on Facebook to no end, too, haha. Bit of a shame that AJ spent his time on this.

At least it's not The Menzingers.
is there anything wrong with "Menzingers"? I'm serious, I don't know if it means anything, but I always thought it didn't.

edit: nevermind, I googled it. it's actually a pretty cool band name

Minnesang was the tradition of lyric and song writing in Germany which flourished in the 12th century and continued into the 14th century. People who wrote and performed Minnesang are known as Minnesingers (Minnesänger).

2. It's possible they had the name before that Penn State business, but I don't care enough to find out.
Their page says the band was formed in 2012...I'm gonna go out on a limb and say even if it was named after the town, they knew what people would think of when they heard the name. You can't just ignore something like that haha. Either way, I am totally uninterested after listening to that song they have up so who cares.

Obviously you can, because that seems to be what they did. Haha! Otherwise, I agree with you. Who cares?

Honestly, their (poor choice of) band name seems to be serving its (possibly intended) purpose of getting people to continuously talk about them, good or bad. To those who seem to be so unbelievably offended by this: the best thing you can do is ignore them. Don't let simple things like this ruin your day. Based on some of the reactions, you'd almost think these guys were the actual sex offenders! Lol seriously people, just ignore them.
