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.

Latest Entries

The 20 most recent entries are listed below. There are 2159 Band Name Origin entries on the site.

Submitted by:
Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam Why do they have to use Lisa's name twice in succession? That sorta implies that there's two members named Lisa in this band (which has never been the case). To me, that's stupid stupid. Mr. Critic
Minnesota This band wasn't from the U.S.; in fact they were from Germany. Unless they somehow have ties to the state of Minnesota, I don't see the point in them using this name. (They covered 4-Non-Blondes' "What's Up" shortly after it was a big hit.) Gus
Ace Of Base Sounds like a playing card in a rejected suit. C.J.
Public Image Ltd. This is not a company or an organization nor it was doing business. Johnny Nguyen
God Is An Astronaut Doesn't make sense... unless they were praying in space when they thought of this name (which is probably unlikely, but ya never know). Mr. Critic
Everything, Everything A band name consisting of the same word twice in succession is tacky enough, but what's worse in this case is that there's already a band called Everything (just that word, once). (By the way, this band's name doesn't actually contain a comma, but I put it there anyway in case the name shows up on two lines after it gets approved.) Pete & Repete
Blood Red Shoes Disgusting...need I say more? Liza Lott
Lindsey Buckingham This performer is a guy, but I thought Lindsey was normally a girl's name. Ken
Alcatrazz Alcatraz (with only one 'z' at the end) is the name of a famous island (and prison) in the San Francisco Bay; why anyone would take this name, double the last letter, and use it as a band name, I can't understand. Gus
Babymetal Another compound word made up of randomly chosen words. It seems to suggest a group of babies (or even toddlers) performing heavy-metal. That doesn't make a whole lotta sense to me. C.J.
The Kingston Trio They're neither from Kingston, ON nor from Kingston, Jamaica - but rather from Palo Alto, CA. Panini
Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine I dunno, it might have a raunchy connotation to it. Mac
Riders of the Purple Sage There are three different known bands by this name, all of which were active during or near the mid 20th century. How could the other two not realize the name had already been taken? Mr. Critic
Little Girls The name suggests an all-female band, but none of the members are actually female. They're all guys! Therefore the name is a misnomer. Greg
Francesqa The name suggests a solo female performer, but it's actually a four-piece group consisting of all males. Additionally, no one's gonna think to spell it this way if they hear it without first seeing it in print. Jonathan S.
The Wave Pictures There are not any photos of waves in the band. Johnny Nguyen
The Cooters Yes, this is an actual band. What the heck is a cooter? Calop
Horse Feathers Horses don't have feathers. Elon Muskrat
Bros It looks like it could be read as short for 'brothers' (i.e., pronounced "broze"), but they want you to pronounce it as "bross" instead. But on the plus side, it is a duo of brothers (twins, in fact). Mr. Critic
Freaky Age Not a good attention-getter if you ask me. They must've had wacky minds to come up with a name like this. Max E. Padd

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.
