These are the band names that we feel are just plain stupid. Bands pick the most absurd names, who wants to be known as a member of the "Butthole Surfers"? We only accept entries for this page that make fun of a band name. Just saying a band is lame (no matter how lame they might be) isn't a good reason for entry.
The 20 most recent entries are listed below. There are 2006 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Bill Haley and His Comets||Comets cannot sing or play musical instruments||Sarah D.|
|The Germs||Does that mean if I listen to their music, I will get sick?||Alexis P.|
|Sun City Girls||They are males, not females, and they are not from anywhere named Sun City.||Daniel|
|Thee Michelle Gun Elephant||What the heck is this name supposed to mean? It just sounds like they picked 3 unrelated words and a girls name at random. And also, why do they use "Thee" instead of "the". "Thee" is an archaic word so it sounds weird in that regard.||Daniel|
|The Who||I can picture someone asking another person "What is your favourite band?". The other person says "The Who", and then other one says "The Who?" and it goes on and on...||Maggie Olsen|
|Rufus||None of the members are named Rufus.||Maggie Olsen|
|Screaming Females||It suggests an all female band, but it's a trio with 2 men and only 1 woman. Therefore this name is misleading.||Winter Pepper|
|Maximum the Hormone||Yet another "words-pulled-out-of-a-hat" band name.||Daniel|
|Dogs Die In Hot Cars||Here's a band name that is not only inhumane, but also too obvious.||Orel Hershyster|
|Versailles||They are from Japan, not France (where the city of Versailles is located).||Winter Pepper|
|Death Cab for Cutie||It sounds like a name for a death metal band, but that's not what kind of band this is.||Frisky|
|Simon Dupree and the Big Sound||It's a misleading name, simply because no one in the band is named Simon Dupree (as implied). That being said, how they came up with this name is beyond my comprehension.||Mr. Critic|
|Sarah Where Is My Tea||That's more like a question, not a name for a band.||Justin|
|Michael Learns To Rock||Well, he already LEARNED to rock.||Justin|
|Thin Lizzy||It sounds like an alias for a female singer, but it's a band and all the members are males.||Lefty Lucy|
|Linus' Blanket||Blankets cannot sing or play musical instruments.||Justin|
|Crazy World of Arthur Brown||It sounds more like a TV show or book than a band.||Sweet Anne|
|Howlin Maggie||It suggests an alias for a female singer, but it's an all men group.||Sweet Anne|
|Sonia Dada||It clearly suggests a full name for a solo female act, but it's a band... and none of its members are even female!||Mr. Critic|
|The Lovin' Spoonful||No band could fit into a spoon!||Francine Harper|

Much like the stupid song lyrics page, I get a lot of submissions for this page. More than I can really handle. The problem is that I get a lot of "Blink 182 is stupid 'cuz I said so" submissions, which I have to waste time deleting (though not much). I also get a lot of submissions that just aren't funny. I guess the real problem is that the word stupid can mean so many things, and hence every band name could be considered stupid.
So in short, don't bother sending me stupid email about this stupid page, or you're stupid.
If you have a creative/humorous idea, please submit it.
