 Too amusing not to share
Author: Delvin

A friend of mine posted to FB that she's attending a triple-bill soon: Buzzcocks, X and NRBQ.

Someone commented that the trouble with that lineup is too many high-value Scrabble letters.

Ha!

What would be the highest scoring band name on Scrabble? Off the top of my head, Fuzzbox would seem a likely contender. There's two Z's, an X and a possible 50 point bonus for using seven letters, if all seven came off your rack.

Their full name of We've Got a Fuzzbox and We're Gonna Use It wouldn't fit on the board, of course.

Of course there is only one Z in Scrabble so one would have to be a blank.

The same would be true of Buzzcocks ... or X-Ray Spex.

Actually, Trouser Press Scrabble sounds like fun.

Fuzzbox - 27 (possibly 77 if all letters played at once)
Jawbox - 25
Buzzcocks - 27 (also has possibility of 50 point bonus)
Squeeze - 25
Del-Byzanteens - 28 (if the judges allow a hyphenate)
Jawbreaker - 26
