Celery Band

Boycott this band: Celery

In fact, let's make this a call to action. Go to their page right now and recommend that they cease and desist using the name "Celery" for their band.

What kind of silly name is that for a band anyway? How do they expect to command respect with a name like that? Are they using it because of the danger factor? Sorry, but celery is not "sexy danger" like skydiving or driving fast in a red car. No, it's the unsexy kind of danger like contracting leprosy or choking on a fish bone.

Go help them come up with a new name. If they want to stick with the veggie theme they could do something like... Svelte Aubergine or Turgid Carrot or The Incorrigible Cabbages or the Daring Daikons.

Way, way better! Go help them save themselves!

I like just "Aubergines." But what the crap is a "daikon"?

What a crazy blog. I'll have to delve into this further. I do not discriminate. I hate any green vegetables.

A daikon is a radish of some sort. As far as I know it's pretty harmless. Not like the sinister celery.

Heather, next week I'm posting about you and your new "job". :)

There is actually a band from Melbourne, Australia called 'Innocent Cabbage'...

If a band names themselves Celery, they probably aren't taking themselves too seriously. To assume that they are makes you the fool. I think it's a breath of fresh air to have a band around dedicated to fun and laughter, while still delivering good quality rock n roll.
I've seen these guys and think, despite your personal bigotry towards this innocent watery green, that they couldn't be named anything else.
Celery is the name. Silly is the game.

Hey there, Anonymous person (presumably a closeted celery-lover). Thanks for pointing out my personal bigotry. This might get me invited to the White House for a beer!

ill hav u know my uncle is the guitarist. and i happen to think they kick ass. who gives a fuck what their name is? when did that become a deciding factor on how good a bands music is? u know, maybe they just wanted to be random like that. i know my uncle(and he is a good man and a great musician), and if any of his friends are like him, it makes perfect sence. or maybe its an inside joke (like a lot of band names). my point is, the fact that ur trying to get the band boycotted cuz u think the name is dumb is by far one of the most stupid and childish things iv ever herd of. get a life and get the fuck off ur computer for once.
