No Krap!

I wandering around a music store recently and did something I haven't in a long time. I went up the "heavy metal" isle.

It struck me how many of these bands began their name with the letter "K". Apparently this is a very heavy metal letter: Korn, Korovakill, Krallice, Kryoburn, Kreator etc. (I'm not making any of these band names up).

The letter "K" on the CD racks was filled with such names. Why?

My theory: "K" is alphabetically further than "C" from "A" for "awful" and "atrocious". Plus, it makes it harder to visually alliterate with "cavorting craptards on cocaine"

"M" was a very 80s letter for starting metal band names (Megadeth, Metallica, etc.). "K" came in with a vengeance in the 90s. And that's when I stopped paying attention. We're probably down to about "H" by now.
