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 1979 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes||Harold Melvin was not the lead singer on any of their hits, as the name implies; Teddy Pendergrass was.||Robert Jon Brown|
|Lamb of God||It's not a christian band (as the name suggests), therefore the name is misleading.||Ashley|
|Molly Hatchet||It sounds like the name of a female singer but it's a band with only male members.||Charlotte|
|The Yin Yang Twins||The name suggests that it's a duo consisting of a pair of twins but it's a hip hop duo and the members aren't twins.||Erin|
|V*Enna||What the heck is this supposed to mean? It suggests "Vienna", but what, if anything is their connection to that city? And as what is billed as a "Christian band," how strange that they employ an asterisk in a manner often used to indicate that a letter has been blocked out of a word inclined to be deemed "offensive"!||Dorothy Jansen|
|Deadmau5||It looks like it should be read as "dead maw five"; using a numeral 5 for an 'S' is just plain stupid.||Marina|
|Rufus||Isn't it just downright weird (not to mention invasion of privacy, if you ask me) to give a band a name of a person that NO ONE in the band has!?||Chowder|
|Stranger Than Fiction||There are actually about four or five bands with this name. One of them was Elliot Smith's old high school band, and another is a bunch of Cowboy Junkies wannabes from Toronto. Those two are decent bands, but with nearly a half a dozen bands with the same name, it lacks originality.||The Skuz|
|Flesh For Lulu||Not sure how they came up with this name, but I doubt that it has anything to do with 60s-70s Scottish singer-actress Lulu.||Lauren|
|Rotting Christ||Can someone say "trying too hard to be edgy"?||Danny Hates Dubstep|
|Ultraspank||Ew... (The worst part is actually explaining to people that I like their music, and dealing with the awkwardness that ensues.)||Danny Hates Dubstep|
|Dash Berlin||They're not actually from Berlin.||Crafthead|
|The Wrens||It's another one of those names that pertains to more than one known music group.||Mr. Critic|
|Hoobastank||It's gross. Sounds like a feminine hygiene problem.||Landon|
|KJ-52||Most people are likely to look at this name and pronounce the numerical part "fifty-two", interpreting it as a full number, rather than "five-two" (the digits one at a time, which is how the artist himself established it). Also it could be interpreted as a four-card hand (king, jack, five, two).||Quyjibo|
|The 88||The combined total of all members of this group, past and present, adds up to way under 88. So the name is misleading in that regard.||Mr. Critic|
|Blanket Of Secrecy||If it's such a secret, why are they singing it to everybody?||Oprah Winbag|
|Eagle Eye Cherry||Cherries don't have any kind of eyes, eagle or otherwise.||Lucille Ball Sized Hail|
|Brad Sucks||I think it's stupid for him to use "Sucks" as a pseudo-last name. Either people would think he's insulting himself, or it's what others might think of him. Talk about repulsive!||Mr. Critic|
|The Members||What are they members of? This is too vague a name.||Quyjibo|

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.
