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 2213 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Zuckerbaby||This was a Canadian alternative band that had moderate success. Was it because their name sounds downright weird?||Pete Worst|
|The Postal Service||Isn't this a violation of copyright laws, since there is already an actual Postal Service?||Opie M.|
|The F-Ups||Were they really this bad to come up with this name? At least they didn't use the actual cussword.||Gus|
|Tinie Tempah||1. Anyone who heard the name but not seen it in print would think it was "Tiny Temper". 2. Another rapper delibrately misspelling the words in his name, how original!||Steve|
|Marshall Hain||Yet another performer name that suggests the first and last name of an individual person but is actually a band instead.||Joe|
|Professor Green||Does this guy actually teach in a college? Somehow I doubt it.||Bob|
|The Little Willies||Are they all admitting they have small junk?||Thaddeus Gammelthorpe|
|Lucero||Another name that pertains to TWO musical acts. One is a solo female Mexican singer (who is also a telenovela star and primarily sings in Spanish); the other is an all-male country band from Memphis, Tennessee. Since the soloist entered the music scene first (albeit in her native country), the band should have realized that the name was already taken.||C.J.|
|At The Drive-In||Drive-in movie theaters are few and far between these days, if they even exist at all. And what happened at the drive-in anyway?||Thaddeus Gammelthorpe|
|First Aid Kit||Because it sounds like a group of nurses.||Lynnetta Lore|
|Elton John||Real name Reginald Kenneth Dwight. But don't you think it would sound better as John Elton (since John is a common first name and Elton sounds more like a last name)?||Thaddeus Gammelthorpe|
|Fuel||It's too boring a band name and the lead singer said there was no deep meaning behind it.||Thaddeus Gammelthorpe|
|Mr. Bungle||Awesome band, but it sounds like it could be the name of a character on a kids show (Mr. Bungle's Neighborhood or something).||Thaddeus Gammelthorpe|
|Big Data||There is no little data, so there's point in naming the opposite.||Odie Garfield|
|Ghost Bath||Is it an actual ghost taking a bath or is it a living mortal taking a bath in ghosts? Either way it's literally impossible.||Thaddeus Gammelthorpe|
|Pond||Yet another fledgling attempt at an ecology-related band name. "Cinders" is a cool song, though.||The Skuz|
|Brian Johnson||Stupid because TWO different musicians have this name. The first was the lead singer of AC/DC, the second was a contestant on the tv show The Voice. The second Brian Johnson probably should have used a stage name if he wanted to make it easier for his fans to search for him on websites.||Thaddeus Gammelthorpe|
|Hush||Another ambiguous performer name. There are three known music acts with this name: (1) an Australian glam band; (2) an American male rapper of multicultural descent; and (3) a male Taiwanese singer. Someone could confuse any of these performers with a certain Deep Purple hit song.||Pete Worst|
|We Are The In Crowd||Any band that puts 'We Are' in its name is only trying to be showy.||Gus|
|Department S||Two reasons why I think this name is stupid. (1) What happened to departments 'A' through 'R'? (2) If there's ever a band called The Departments, it would create a sorting conflict with this band's name.||Little Old Lady Hu|

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.
