How to pronounce those modern band names

As you all know, bands ran out of name ideas several years ago and have had to resort to nonsensical jumbles of letters and numbers to use as band names. I refuse to follow these bands' "official pronunciations," or even pay attention to them at all, and say these band names the way I choose. What are they anyway, pronunciation nazis? I encourage everyone to follow my example. Here's how I think these band names should be said.

MGMT: pronounced "Mudgemutt"

DD/MM/YYYY: pronounced "Duh-Dummy-Yah-Yah-Yah."

Wxt Hearts: pronounced "Waxed Hearts"

Xrin Arms: pronounced "Christian Arms"

!!!: not pronounced at all, just silently raise eyebrows 3 times.

Wooden Shjips: pronounced "Wooden Shih-jips"

more to come I'm sure...
