Stupid Band Names -> Latest Entries

Chalk Circle
The name itself isn't really stupid per se, but the problem is that there are TWO bands with this name. Submitted by: Chris
Eddie from Ohio
This is a misnomer in more ways than one. First off, it suggests a solo male performer from the state of Ohio. But it's a band. However, one of its members is named Eddie. Secondly, they're not from Ohio; they're from Virginia. Submitted by: Cassandra

Nonsensical Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

"Flippin' to the A-Side " by Cats Can Fly
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Flippin' to the 'A' Side
Livin' on the B Side
Nothin' on the B side
Lovin' on the wayside
To the 'A' side
Why They're Nonsensical:
It makes no sense what context they are using the terms for cause flipping between the A and B sides implies listening to either a record or a cassette tape.
