Its a pain in the ass when bands have a hard ass name to pronounce. And you listem to them but you dont know how to fuckin say there name! This thread is about that and clearing everything up.
For example lets say i ask "how the fuck do you pronounce Desaparecidos?!"
then sumone answers me and says "Its pronounced Dess-ah-par-eh-seedoes"
you know? shit like that. This has been buggin me for a long ass time!
I hope i find an answer on how to pronounce Sigur Ros, Dredg (or however the fuck u spell it)
Also! if u dont know how to pronounce a band just mention it!

this is a website for all the Sigur Rs pronunciation

About Dredg, I wish I knew how to pronounce it too. :confused:

I remember when I had a hard time trying to pronounce !!!, then someone told me it was chig chig chig. I pronounce it like that. Some other people (like Cedric in an interview) call them pow pow pow, and some chik chik chik, and some anything else. How do you guys pronounce !!! ?

i usually say chik chik chik, but sometimes bang bang bang

and as for desaparecidos, it's a spanish word, so it's pronounced like that person said, with the spanish pronunciation.. it's moreso remembering how to spell it that messes me up.

and dredg... maybe like dredge? dunno about that one

I read somewhere that !!! can be pronounced as any 'sound' repeated 3 times...

So if you want to call em wakka wakka wakka, that would be fine... :king:
