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 1918 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Faster Pussycat||It sounds either very naughty or like none of the band members could remember the word "cheetah".||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|New Radicals||Please! They're about as radical as the friggin' Osmonds! I can think of Disney Channel singers who are more radical than them!||The Skuz|
|Tom Waits||It's his real name (actually, Tom is short for Thomas, but that's beside the point), but it could also be a complete sentence!||Kelly|
|Kill Hannah||Someone named his band after a death wish toward his ex-girlfriend. Scary as well as stupid!||Doodah Bobo|
|The 1975||Using "The" followed by a number (particularly one that could be interpreted as a year) is not a good way to name a band. First of all, this band was formed in the 2010s, and none of its members were around in the year 1975; in fact, none of them were born until the late 1980s. Therefore, I don't see the point in them using this number as their name.||Mr. Critic|
|White Lion||There is more than one band member, so the name should be The White Lions, unless somebody in the band has a white lion as a pet.||Opie M.|
|Glass Cloud||Another concrete example of a "literally impossible" band name. Clouds are composed of water vapor, not glass.||Calop|
|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|

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.
