Shitty Bands That Need to Go Away Pt. 1: The Devil Wears Prada

Let's do something different and completely hate on a band that deserves it, shall we? It's more fun to hate terrible bands than it is to love great ones. Well, maybe not more fun, but definitely more amusing.

So let's see, as mentioned earlier, this band is named after a Meryl Streep movie. That's not what they claim, but to me, if you have to come up with a convoluted story to explain away any similarities between your band's name and a Meryl Streep movie, you could have just as easily come up with a better name. Therefore, I will accept no explanations and just tell you this cold, hard fact: you named yourself after a fucking Meryl Streep movie, about fashion no less.

Now that we have that ugliness out of the way, what other Meryl Streep movies could you have named yourselves after? This is a primer for all you Christian hardcore bands out there. I had to use Wikipedia to come up with this as I don't know many Meryl Streep movies, unlike The Devil Wears Prada who apparently knew of one.

Fantastic Mr. Fox
Julie & Julia
Mamma Mia! (added points for being the name of a terrible Abba song)
A Prairie Home Companion
The Hours
Music of the Heart
The Bridges of Madison County
Death Becomes Her (I wouldn't be shocked to see some horrible screamo band with this name)
Postcards from the Edge
Out of Africa
Sophie's Choice

There you have it, free advice. Now, fuck off.


  1. You only hate Mamma Mia because I make you listen to it! And guess what? We are getting it on Netflix!! Muah-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!!
