Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes and Ralph Garman tweak popular bands' names to make them sound as terrible as the ones in the South By Southwest lineup. (2:08)

#HASHTAGWARS.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

SO THIS WEEKEND'S SOUTH BY

SOUTHWEST LINEUP SOUNDED LIKE A

LONG-FORM IMPROV FESTIVAL WITH

ACTUAL BAND NAMES LIKE BUTTER

THE CHILDREN, PERFECT PUSSY AND

MARIJUANA DEATH SQUAD, IN

ADDITION TO THE ONES FROM

EARLIER.

SO THE STUPIDER YOUR

BAND NAME, THE NOTICETER YOUR

BAND GETS, WHICH IS WHY

TONIGHT'S HASHTAG IS #RUINABAND.
