Every now and then, there's a thing that happens on the Internet that's amusing enough for a bit that you get caught up in it. If it catches on, call it a meme. If it's more like the mystical "24-hour stomach flu," call it a hashtag bender.
Some time yesterday, people started posting to Twitter with the tag "coolbandsmadeuncool
." It's simple enough: Change the name of a cool band so it doesn't sound cool anymore. For example: Nurse Dre
, Fleetwood PC
and, my personal favorite, Boyz II Men I Cup
. (I was rather proud of Barely Legal Threat
myself, but hey.)
So, let's play the game with only Nashville bands! I'll start.
