If you're just remembering it, why does it matter if it's naughty?

Less naughty than some I've seen:

Not quite the one i learnt :P You won't think it now but eventually u will realise it's handy information to know off hand.

And if you can remember the black-brown and grey-white at each end, the middle section is the rainbow colours in order less indigo - Richard Of York Gave Battle (in) Vain.

I remember that in just a few months of learning electronics, the code combinations of common resistors are just remembered.
The "rainbow" advice works great for uncommon resistors.
However, there is no substitute for DMMs. You may come across a resistor without color bands (I've seen one!), come across a strangely-marked resistor (I've seen one of those too!), or you may need to know the exact value.
If you have nothing else to do, you can take a box of resistors, pick one by random, try to figure out the value, and then check with a DMM.
