Band Name Origins:

  • I am from the same town as Hoobastank, and my brother was friends with them in high school. They got their name because when they went to record their first demo, right after they started. They walked into the recording studio and there was a man in the waiting room. He had Tourette's Syndrome. Out of nowhere, he just started yellng "Hoobastank! Hoobastank! Hoobastank!" They thought it was funny, so they used that name. Submitted by: Adam
  • they were all at a football match together and someone yelled out 'who but stink' so thats how they made hoo-ba-stank Submitted by: Cheyenne

Stupid Band Names:

  • It's gross. Sounds like a feminine hygiene problem. Submitted by: Landon
  • Sounds like an odd word someone would say when they walk into the restroom at any sporting event. Submitted by: Rychendroll
  • I think that they wanted a name based on a word they invented in high school. Of course this is just jibberish that means nothing. Submitted by: Travis
  • Sounds like a made-up "redneck" word. (like the kind Jeff Foxworthy mentioned) Submitted by: Jonathan S.
  • It's just plain stupid. Doesn't seem to mean anything, and it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Submitted by: A. Person
