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 1835 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Modest Mouse||I seriously doubt that mice have a kind of mentality capable of manifesting either modesty or arrogance or any related attitudes.||Natalie Merchant's Millpond|
|Tech N9ne||If we were to use the normal numbers in place of words system so many people use nowadays, this rapper's name would be Tech Nnineine. It's not, but do you see how dumb that looks?||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Deftones||It sounds as though they're saying that everyone in this band is tone-deaf. Sorry, not good.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Asia||It's a bunch of white, British guys. I shouldn't have to explain any more.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Jimmy Eat World||How big is Jimmy he can eat the whole world?||Nurul|
|Butthole Surfers||I'd stay away from them, for fear they might give me hemorrhoids!||Tiffany Furlong|
|Good Old War||Wars are not good. Who on earth thought up this name???||Alex|
|Cinderella||Like with Queen etc, this is an all male band with a WAY too feminine-sounding name.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|The Men||It's WAYYY too generic of a name. LOTS of bands consist solely of adult males. Perhaps these guys just couldn't think of a creative name for their band, so they used something systematic instead?||Alex|
|Cold||One of the reasons it's stupid is that the name is so generic that it's almost impossible to find their self-titled debut album on amazon.com. I've tried many different submissions (Cold self-titled, Cold Scooter Ward, etc.) and none of them got me the right one. Your best bet is to type in one of their other albums and go to the "people who bought this also bought" section.||Thaddeus Gammelthorpe|
|Jukebox The Ghost||Yet another example of random words being thrown together. This is a real band, no lie.||Alex|
|Halestorm||Most people might assume this band's name is Hailstorm if they don't see it in print first. This is due in part to the fact that a hailstorm is a weather condition.||Alex|
|Wishbone Ash||Sounds like a drug. Drugs are bad. This band is very good.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|5 Seconds of Summer||Is the name of this boy band a suggestion about how long their popularity will last?||JD|
|Captain Beyond||Where are captains Bed & Bath?||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|13 Engines||(1) Engines are inanimate objects; why name your band after such a thing? (2) There were 4 people in this band, not 13.||Chris|
|The Weeknd||Yes, this is the correct spelling of the name, no lie.||A. Critic|
|Steel Panther||Reminds me too much of that one Mark Wahlberg movie...||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Crashdiet||European Glam Metal Revival group. As with Black Stone Cherry, it just looks like the band members randomly put words together so they could have a name and then got too lazy to bother changing it.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Saigon Kick||Instantly makes me picture a really dumb looking energy drink.||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.
