While not real names, a hilarious new meme circling Twitter late last year had us all pondering the origins of some of our favorite bands.
Twitter user @siddiqrahamut kicked off the internet phenomenon with a simple question — ”Is Charlotte even good?”

Then, so many other people hopped on the bandwagon, asking questions about so many of our favorite acts. Mayday Parade, Pierce The Veil, A Day To Remember, Taking Back Sunday, Limp Bizkit, Simple Plan and Panic! At The Disco all got dragged into it.
