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 1902 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Portugal. The Man||You form a band and that's the best you can come up with? And yes the band name is really spelled with the period. I don't care what their reasons are for coming up with it, it's really stupid.||Edward|
|It's Immaterial||What's immaterial? And why use a phrase like this for a band name? Makes me wonder what these guys were thinking...||Ray|
|Norma Jean||The name itself actually isn't stupid per se, but this is yet another name that is used by TWO music acts. One is a female country music singer (solo artist) who was at her peak during the 1960's; the other is an all-male metalcore band that formed in the late 1990's. The band should have realized that the name was already taken.||Pete & Repete|
|H.I.M.||Stands for His Infernal Majesty. Doesn't that sound so much cooler than keeping it abbreviated?||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Trixter||Do you want to get sued by Kellogg's?||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|The Rembrandts||There is only one Rembrandt. And these guys never painted a picture.||The Late John Lennon|
|Ty Dolla $ign||Yet another rapper with a dollar sign in his name and this time it's spelled out, the way rappers spell of course with the dollar sign in place of an S. The name seems clever but it really isn't.||JD|
|Young Thug||Rap names don't get much more generic than this.||JD|
|Saucy Monky||No one who hears this indie rock band's name without first seeing it in print is gonna think that the second word is misspelled.||Fred|
|All About She||Of the three members of this group, only one is female. Are they saying that she's the most important out of them, ignoring the fact that she's outnumbered two to one? (It's also a grammatical abomination; wouldn't it normally be "All About Her"?)||Crafthead|
|She & Him||It's just that it's grammatically incorrect and there are enough ways they could have avoided that. (also, She & Him is the same band as She And Him, sorry for that.)||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Blind Guardian||I wouldn't trust a blind person to guard anything!||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Megadeth||I've seen this misspelled SO many times in record stores, it's not even funny...||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Buckethead||Sounds like a prank you'd play on the dumb kid in school.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Slow||This Canadian punk band is anything but slow.||James Ramone|
|Childish Gambino||It sounds like a spoiled six-year-old brat playing mobster.||Todd W. Zimmerman|
|Phantogram||It sounds like a telegram sent by comic book hero the Phantom.||Peter Paul Mounds|
|Madison Beer||This is her actual name, but most people who haven't heard of her but see the name will assume it's an alcoholic beverage. Plus, this performer is underage (and will be until 2020).||Chris|
|Slaughter||Two bands have this name: A Canadian Thrash Metal band and an American Glam Metal Band. Two completely opposite-genre groups have the same name! That is why it is stupid.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Foo Fighters||Dave Grohl, this band's founder, says that it is the dumbest possible band name. Therefore, he admits his own band's name is a stupid one.||GlamRockNinjaLord|

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.
