This won't make much sense if you don't know the language, but band names translated (in some cases, creatively interpreted) into Kannada is just the silly stuff you want to read on a Friday.
Radiohead's "Akashvani Thale" is such a great, weird name for a great, weird band. The Who re-named "Yaaru?" creates a sense of mystery. Uncle Cracker's "Vadiyo Mama" sounds rowdy and wicked and how about a very simple, life-affirming "Howdu", for Yes? Classic.
But A-Ha's name in Kannada is the one that clinched the deal for me. Look it up.
Thanks to blogger K.J. Simha for this list!
