Best Band Name

Dude York

When Peter Richards and Andrew Hall started a band, they came up with the perfect name to embody their rambunctious, funny-bro vibe: Dude York. It's a pun, but not a very good one, in the same way their cacophonous, anything-goes brand of punk, with its arbitrary literary references and spastic bursts of energy, is sloppy but also hilarious. (They push the pun hard, too, giving their records names like Gangs of Dude York and Escape From Dude York.) New bassist Claire England is female, but the band's spirit remains totally dudely, bro.
