Terrible band names: real or fake?

Image credit: 

Lord knows there are a ton of terrible band names out there. In fact, I'm guilty of playing lead guitar (er, "playing") in a few guilty parties myself (to wit: "Dinner with Hern Berford" in high school and "Subtext Becomes Text" in college). But we certainly weren't the worst; in fact, I would go so far as to say that band names generated at random could not be worse than the monikers bands pin on themselves willingly. (We also used the metal band name generator when coming to this studied conclusion -- a lot of fun.) Can you tell the difference between randomly generated band names and real ones? Prove it!
