What is it with the word 'THE' and new rock bands?

I am starting to worry.
I am in a band whose name does not start with the word 'the'.
Are we doomed to total obscurity? Was this a huge mistake in our marketing strategy?
Think about it. All the new bands cracking it at the moment. What do they have in common? The Vines, The Casanovas, The White Stripes, The Donnas, The Datsuns, The Strokes, The International Noise Conspiracy, the list goes on. Hey wait a minute, someone really ought to tell Jet.....</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

how about the jet set? Wait I think that's already a band. Is it me or is this re-occuring trend in names, image and sound starting to wear a bit thin? Whatever happened to originality?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Originality isn't in fashion this season. Come on people keep up with the trends here.

I think you'll find a lot of "the" bands have been around for some time before the sudden noticeable explosion. It's just a trend. All the bands will still be around once the trend dies down, but not as much notice will be taken. I personally hope it lingers for a while yet.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
