what is wrong with Malaysian artist?

ini hasil lepak kat mamak lama sangat.

each time dengar lagu, have you ever thought about nama nama band who plays the songs?
you might not realize this(or maybe you do but you just dont give a rat's ass about it), but people of the West actually gives pretty bangang names to represent themselves.

and i was just wondering why we Malaysians dont do the same.

ok cuba take the direct translation of these band names.
eh kejap kejap.
tak payah la, nanti panjang pulak comment korg nak type.
ill translate terus so u can see how ughh dumb it sounds like.

1. Arctic Monkeys : Monyet Artik
2. Funeral For A Friend : Pengebumian Untuk Kawan
3. Coldplay : Main Sejuk
4. The Who? : Siapa?
5. Vampire Weekend : Pontianak Hujung Minggu
6. Modest Mouse : Tikus Rendah Diri
7. Radiohead : Kepala Radio
8. Red Hot Chilli Peppers : Merah Panas Cili Lada
9. Blink 182 : Kelip 182
10. Garbage : Sampah
11. Third Eye Blind : Mata Ketiga Buta
12. Silverchair : Kerusi Perak
13. Avenged Sevenfold : Balas Dendam Tujuh Lipatan
14. Creed : Akidah (kan? ke Tauhid?)
15. Death Cab for Cutie : Teksi Kematian untuk Si Comel

Point is, why cant Malaysian come up with such stupid random names and walk away with it?
Letak la nama Topi Ajaib ke, Buku Nota ke, Kertas Zig Zag ke.

Are we too insecure to be able to pull off something as stupid?

hahaha. nice one lah.

ada je sebenarnya, tapi mungkin diorang belum famous lagi. ataupun mungkin bila diletak nama kelakar, secara automatiknya life span band/artist itu jadi macam kelakar jugak. just for fun.

tapi band2 di atas tu semuanya serious, i mean dalam perjuangan muziknya.

Eh aaah la. hoho. was busy concentrating on bands semalam, terlupa langsung about the others.

Jepp:
tapi saya rasa kalau muzik memang hebat, nama yang bodoh pun blh jadi best. :) cuma mungkin Malaysian tak ramai yang berani lg kot. awak jd la pioneer!

Lincat:
heheh. lain kali awak ikut pergi brainstorming lagi uhh? ;)

Fatul:
oh tak blh. nanti awak marah saya plagiat blog awak. hoho.
