Guitarist Zoltan Bathory Says Five Finger Death Punch Is “Probably The Worst Fucking Name”

The latest episode of Five Finger Death Punch‘s ongoing studio diary for their new album finds the band’s guitarist Zoltan Bathory and frontman Ivan Moody discussing the origin of the band’s name and more. During the video Bathory reveals that their moniker, which is said to have originated from a kung fu movie, was nearly changed early on. Regarding that he stated:

“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.

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 came in and said, ‘That’s the best name ever, they’re gonna fucking hate it! Keep it! That’s fucking ridiculous!'”
