I think that's a pretty good rule of thumb, but exceptions off the top of my head would include
Spacemen 3, Galaxie 500, and The Old '97's.
I'm not a huge U2 or UB40 fan, but I don't think either of them suck. I understand others may disagree.
And Timbuk3 had a fun song like 25 years ago.
Or are you only talking about substitute for letters like the Kei$ha thing? If so, I got nothin'.
