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 1741 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|The Church||It might be fitting for a band that performs religious-oriented music, since a church is a place of worship and prayer, but not an alt-rock band (which is what this group is).||Cassandra|
|K7||I thought it might be a seven-person band consisting of people whose names all begin with the letter K, but it's nothing of the sort. In fact, it's a solo male singer...whose given name is Louis Sharpe. There's no "K" in that name, so where does it come from? And why the number 7? Did he just randomly pull a letter and a number out of a hat or something?||Mr. Critic|
|The Escape Club||What are they escaping from (or trying to escape from)?||Megan|
|Chickenfoot||Boring animal + boring part of the body = dumb band name.||G|
|Flobots||It should be the name of a 1980s cartoon. That would be a lot cooler than having it as a band name.||G|
|Toast||This is the most boring single word band name I've ever seen.||G|
|The Peppermint Rainbow||Rainbows are intangible things and have no flavor.||Sonia Rinzaimayor|
|The Gadjits||Is this supposed to be a misspelling of Gadgets? If so, these guys did a rather convincing job. As it is, though, it can be misleading for those who hear it without first seeing it in print.||Calop|
|The Cherry People||No people are cherry-flavored, nor are any people made of cherries or cherry wood.||Olivia Tame|
|Girlfriend||Another music-act name that suggests an individual, but is a group instead. But at least all the members are female.||Calop|
|KONGOS||People who hear the name but haven't seen it in print are likely to spell it 'Congos'.||Jonathan S.|
|Fall Out Boy||The name implies an individual male performer, but it's a band (MORE than one person). And why "fall out"? They must've had warped minds.||Kareem Abdul-Montana|
|Reckless Love||Sounds like the band members are intentionally trying to get STDs.||G|
|Mission Of Burma||Am I the only one who notices this is Broken English? From a group of solely English-speaking musicians, no less!||G|
|Walk The Moon||You can walk a dog, but not the moon.||Alice|
|Horace Pinker||The name looks like it could be an individual's first and last name, but this is a band.||Carrie Ahn|
|Flaming Mussolinis||This band had quite some exposure in their native California in 1987-1988. They had a hit with the catchy "A Different Kind of Love". But look at the band name. Why would these guys want to name themselves after "il Duce" = "il Dousch" , the first fascist dictator, who was a very violent, oppressive and evil man?||Loony Hound Dogg|
|Charlie||First of all, it suggests a solo performer, but it was a band...and if that's not bad enough, they originally called themselves Charlie Cuckoo, which *also* seems like it could refer to an individual. But what's worse about this name is that there are plenty of performers out there (mostly solo artists) with Charlie in their name, such as Charlie Parker, Charlie Daniels, and others...so if you try to search for this band on a particular site, it'll be complicated.||Evan Shortoria|
|Madison Beer||This name suggests a brand of alcoholic beverage, but this is actually the name of a teen age female vocalist.||JD|
|Today's Tomorrow||It's an oxymoron.||Chowder|

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.
