    Yes bands with 'the' in them really do suck. -_-

    I think this needs to be more specific.

    How about "bands that have the word 'The' in them, followed by some random word(s) that don't make any sense and have no relevance to anything to do with the band, but apparently sound 'cool'".

    The Locust

    Band names are not relevant to the quality of the music. There are countless great bands with and without 'the' at the beginning of their names.

    Apart from that I can agree with you.

    That's the point of this thread.

    People on here don't know who The Jam are? Seriously? :confused:
    My thoughts exactly! In my opinion, the best British band of all time.

    All those you've listed as "the"s do in fact suck.

    It is impossible to say suck in an english accent without sounding too literal...

    The first band I thought upon reading the OP was: THE Strokes. No way in hell do they suck. I just proved your little theory wrong.

    Any band with over three words in their name sucks.
    Even "The Fabulous Good Time Party Boys Medicine Show Sunday Morning Prayer Meeting Revue"?

    Oh well.
