Well Played...

I saw the band Trapped Under Ice listed 20 times in places before I realized they weren't a Metallica Tribute band. To me that's too much. A band like Godsmack took a cool song title and made it theirs... kinda.

Trapped Under Ice will always be Metallica to me... I do like some of the bands music though but the name is just stupid.

Band names by themselves do not really dissuade me from listening. Unless they are some shit like Begging for Incest, then I have no interest in checking out their music. But the majority of the time Band Names are ultimately unimportant.

Me too, I was absolutely convinced they were a high profile thrash covers band for a while. When I found out they weren't I figured they were a generic thrash band. Nope.

It's a cool name, but I think Metallica are just too popular of a band to take your name from - everyone and their dad knows Metallica's back catalog, especially in the undergound music scene.

Well, I'll agree with that, unless you want to call your band Ronnie or something!

If the concept you imagined for an album cover or the name you thought of for your band does not represent the music you're writing (or in the case of a name, started off writing) then you've done something wrong. Sure, some bands' names or artwork may be more thought provoking or have an obscure meaning, but rest assured they made that decision for a reason. Part of marketing your band is to have a theme that represents what type of music you play. That's a major factor in getting people to listen to your work. This was especially the case before the age of the internet when people would be more likely to blindly purchase your album if it had artwork or a name that seemed relevant to their interests. Of course now it's much easier to try before you buy, but that doesn't mean everybody is going to take the time to do that. Whether or not anybody thinks it's right to disregard a band for their name or album art, the fact is that it happens and will continue to happen. Both are important to having success as an artist.
