Band Name Origins:

  • They kept changing their name. They had a song called "Butthole surfer. At one concert, the guy introducing the band forgot their name and introduced them as "The Butthole Surfers". The name stuck! (source: "Our Band Could Be Your Life" by Michael Azerrad.) Submitted by: Jef Rummens
  • When the band started out, they made a deal that they would never play under the same name twice. They booked themselves under a different name for every show (tough to build name recognition that way). They thought it was clever until they played a festival (I think it was in Austin, TX) under the name "The Butthole Surfers" and got huge press. It was by far the largest crowd they had ever play for and the reviews all gave them huge press boasted that "The Butthole Surfers" stole the show. Suddenly they were forced to continue performing under the name "Butthole Surfers" to keep getting big gigs. They played a joke and the joke was on them, it stuck! Submitted by: Chris

Stupid Band Names:

  • I'd stay away from them, for fear they might give me hemorrhoids! Submitted by: Tiffany Furlong
  • If anything has a butthole big enough to surf, I'd be afraid of falling in! Yikes:( Submitted by: Karen Smith
  • I don't know a lot of surfers that are jerks. Maybe these guys are surfers that aren't really nice or well-liked that formed a rock band. Submitted by: carly_carlz
  • I do not believe you can surf in a butthole. Or, well, I can't anyway. Submitted by: Shido
  • It sounds like some 4 year old's attempt at raw toilet humour, which doesn't please anyone who isn't, well, a four year old. Submitted by: TullyGirl
  • There are additional new stupid band names available.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Jonathan S.

I know it's odd, but that's what happens when you try to hear the lyrics over the music in "Guitar Hero II."

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Who Was In My Room Last Night?"
The Funny Lyrics:
My mouth went through the ceiling
And my body fell through the floor!
There was no key, there was no one I could see
So I ran right through the door!
Why They're Funny:
I realize this might be more at home in the "nonsensical" category, but these particular lyrics just can't be taken seriously! "My mouth went through the ceiling??" "Ran through the door??" Is he saying he's a ghost or something?!?

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"The Shame of Life"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
There were girls in the front, There were girls in the back,
There were girls petting squirrels, There were squirrels smoking crack.
Why They're Nonsensical:
I'm sorry, but the last phrase makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. These guys must have been doing just that in order to come up with this line.

Backwards Messages:

"Pepper"
If you have listened to the track "Pepper" by the Butthole Surfers, you may notice that in one part of the song there is some gibberish. Play it backwards, and you get the chorus of the song.
Submitted by: Hector
"Creep In the Cellar"
On the album "Rembrant Pussyhorse" on the song "Creep In The Cellar" the entire song is played over the song being played backwards. Not very interesting, but it is there.
Submitted by: Wade Brock
"The Revenge of Anus Presley"
In the song "The Revenge of Anus Presley" there is a backwards message which says "There is a time to live, and a time to die, but I smoke Elvis Presleys toenails when I want to get high". It is on the album "Brown Reason to Live".
