Should've just came up with a completely new name. But I get why they didn't.

Couldn't they just edit their name under he settings?

Not familar with this band but although the reasoning behind is very respectable this change seems a downgrade. There are so many abbreviated names out there.
You can't edit your name when you have over 100 fans.

This is goofy, This Town Needs Guns isn't a great name but TTNG is silly. Explosions in the Sky didn't change their name after 9-11 and there were definitely people drawing that comparison.

it makes sense but then i wish they'd completely change their name. i'm not a fan of these kind of names ala HRVRD, CSTVT, NGHBRS...
You and me both. Hard to keep track of them all.

Especially if you were going to have a real life conversation with someone it's a little awkward. "I can't wait to go see TTNG and CSTVT tonight!"

They should not change their name because of some coward shooting up a school. Anyone that backs these laws is an idiot.

They're doing what they feel is respectful. I don't see a problem with that.
