FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH Guitarist Admits His Band Has 'The Worst F**king Name'

According to The Pulse Of Radio, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory has admitted in the band's latest video update from the recording studio that he never liked the group's name.

Bathory said: "The name of the band has to have some kind of effect. 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."

He continued: "I mean, I don't think you can beat FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. That's probably the worst fucking name. In fact, we almost changed it, but then Ivan [Moody, vocals] came in and said, 'That's the best name ever, they're gonna fucking hate it! Keep it! That's fucking ridiculous!'"

Bathory told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH was always ready to take risks to push its career forward. "We are here to step forward and take as much development in anything we do as it is possible, and that's the mentality and that's gonna be in every aspect," he said. "We're gonna kind of push the envelope, maybe go overboard here and there, but, you know, that's the idea."

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH is currently recording its eighth album with its regular producer, Kevin Churko, the Canadian record producer/engineer and songwriter who works out of his private Las Vegas facility, The Hideout Recording Studio.
