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 1911 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|The Sounds Of Sunshine||Does sunshine even make any sounds (naturally speaking)?||Jed|
|Jump-Little-Children||Little children don't want to be bossed around.||testing|
|Jungle Brothers||Another band name that is a misnomer in more ways than one. None of the members have Jungle as a surname (not even as a pseudonym), and none of them are related as brothers.||Joe King|
|Foghat||The name has no apparent non-random origin except as a spoonerism of "Hog Fat"!||Daisy Pappus|
|I Fight Dragons||If we had a section for "literally impossible" band names, this name would be a concrete example, since dragons are mythical creatures. It's also stupid in the regard that declarative statements don't make for good band names.||Mr. Critic|
|Milo Greene||The name implies a solo singer, but it is actually a group of four singers and a percussionist.||Tommy|
|MAGIC!||Ironic that their hit was titled "Rude", because using all caps and an exclamation point in the name is just that.||Opie M.|
|Ginger Baker's Air Force||Who the heck owns their own personal air force?||Kate Downton|
|Mike Will Made It||Yet another grammatically awkward name. And this time it's a solo rap artist. What does this indicate?||Tim|
|Highasakite||Yet another band name with multiple words run together.||Mr. Critic|
|9nine||Yet another band name from the department of redundancy department. They want you to pronounce it as "nine", but they have both the numeral AND the spelled-out number form, together. Why couldn't they have just chosen one or the other? It clearly looks more like "nine nine." Furthermore, this group does not have nine people in it.||Mr. Critic|
|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|

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.
