Names -> Stupid Band Names -> Latest Entries

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.

Submitted by:
Dick Delicious and the Tasty Testicles Someone once told me, if I were to put two random words together, there is a 5% chance of it sounding awesome and a 95% chance of it being a rock band, but even I wouldn't have ever thought this up. Kestral
Blonde Redhead This name is an oxymoron; you can't be a redhead and blonde at the same time. The Mole
Johnny Truant Yet another name that suggests a solo performer in first-name-last-name form but is actually a group. Joe
Satanicpornocultshop Too long; contains a few raunchy words mixed in. H
Dana International Sounds like a name for a company or organization, not for a soloist singer. Lorraine Thoanjer
Chicago Poodle This is a Jpop band, so why they use a certain American city in their name is beyond my comprehension. Unless they somehow have ties to the "Windy City," I don't see the point. Mr. Critic
Camper Van Beethoven Any band that uses two-thirds of a celebrated composer's name for part of its own name, must be uncreative. Wilrub
Scissor Sisters None of the members are related as sisters, and none of them have Scissor as a surname. Therefore this name is a misnomer in more ways than one. Joe
The Streets Roadways can't perform music. Lorraine Thoanjer
Soft Ballet Their music is anything but soft! Belinda Trucklisle
The Kills 1) It could be mistaken for The Killers, a more well-known alternative band; 2) It's way too repulsive. Mr. Critic
Bennie K It looks like it should be a solo person, but instead it's a female duo. Rhonda Hindle
Sunny Day Real Estate It's obvious that these guys don't sell houses, and there is no connection between real estate and music. Obi Lame Kenobi
I Am David Sparkle First, nobody in the band is named David Sparkle. Second, any band name that starts with "I Am" sounds plain stupid. Frieda Evans
Matenrou Opera It's not an opera; it's a visual kei metal band. Belinda Trucklisle
Germans None of the members of this band are German; they're all Canadians. Natalie Benson
Carolina Chocolate Drops Sounds more like it should be the name of a candy shop than that of a band. Chris
Tame Impala Is tame an adjective or verb in this case? Belinda Trucklisle
Passpo It kind of looks like they were going to spell it "Passport" but they forgot to type in the last two letters. Chris Chendo
Imaginary Johnny The name seems to suggest a solo male performer, but it's a band, and none of the members are named Johnny (although one ex-member did have a given name of John). Mr. Critic

Submissions Are Accepted Again

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.
