The first thing that crosses my mind when I hear of a band named Starfucker, I think that death metal. This band is far from that. Maybe it’s because Fucked Up tainted my conception of what a profanity-laden band would embody. Also, with Fucker in the title of your band name…you’re really limited your exposure. You can pretty much kiss off any halftime appearance at the Super Bowl, Grammy performance…and even MTV at this point. Granted, Starfucker wasn’t their first name (Pyramid and STRFKR got turns) and as much as I assumed, the name has done very little to hamper them. Target actually selected one of their songs to be featured in a commercial. Target is pretty much a Game of Throne’s DVD short of a Walmart. Nothing says family demographic like a band called Starfucker. But good for Target for having the balls to pick the best band for the job, while not getting stuck on their name. And good for Starfucker for not selling out and calling themselves something like Fall Out Boy.
