look up any word, like eiffel tower:
 
1.
Band that a musician starts or joins with the intention of making it big, but due to lack of commitment, untalented musicians and no ambition other than said musician (whether that musician is a vocalist, guitarist, drummer, bassist, pianist, whatever) and the band falls apart. Giving the said musician no progress in his musical experience other than the impression that he should try going solo to avoid failbands.
Failbands: Fuck that.

2.
Any band that tends to fail at multiple factors of being a band, i.e; music, promotion, name. A sad excuse for a band.
Burning Cold is the most epic fail band ever!
