Five Finger Death Punch Guitarist Says Band Has ‘Worst F–king Name’
Band names don't get much more aggressive than Five Finger Death Punch. In a new recording studio video posted by the band on their YouTube channel, guitarist Zoltan Bathory admits that it's "probably the worst fucking name."
"The name of the band has to have some kind of effect," Bathory begins. "It doesn't have to be positive. It doesn't have to be, like, 'That's the greatest name in the world!' It can be, 'Oh my god, that's the dumbest fucking shit I ever heard!' Equally good, because it got a reaction."
The guitarist continues to reveal his true feelings about the band name. "I mean, I don't think you can beat Five Finger Death Punch. That's probably the worst fucking name," says the guitarist. "In fact, we almost changed it, but then Ivan came in and said, 'That's the best name ever, they're gonna fucking hate it! Keep it! That's fucking ridiculous!'"

In a previous video of the band's studio series, the guitarist shed some light on the tone of their upcoming eighth studio album, stating that it's a shift back to their heavier side. Prepare for "brutal riffs."
The band recently found a new drummer after former member Jeremy Spencer left the group in December. Spencer was recently been sworn in as a reserve police officer in Indiana, while 5FDP swore Charlie Engen in as his replacement after seeing video clips of him playing drums on Instagram. What a world.
