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.

The 20 most recent entries are listed below. There are 2188 Band Name Origin entries on the site.

Submitted by:
Joseph Joseph is a man's name. But this music act is a band... of all females. Pete Worst
Buffalo Daughter Yet another band name that seems to consist of two randomly chosen words. Gus
Mind.In.A.Box What I find stupid about this name is that they use periods between the words. What on earth for?? Gus
B5 It could be interpreted as either a bingo call number or a position on a battleship grid. Howie Dewin
Get Scared Ok, so if your name is Get Scared, do you NOT want people to listen to your music? Riddle me that. Relith Kanima
Saint Motel (1) There's no saint named Motel. (2) It seems like another case of randomly choosing two unrelated words. What's the point? K.N. Pepper
lovelytheband No capital letters, words scrunched together, the narcissistic title. There's nothing right with this name.  Rock Maninoff
Pixies There were two bands called the Pixies, an obscure 1960's girl group and a 1980's and later alternative band. (The alternative band is the more well known of the two, however.) Robert Jon Brown
Our Heart's Hero How can *anyone's* heart have a hero? If we had a section for Literally Impossible Band Names, this would be fitting to put there. Joe
She & Him It's grammatically inconsistent. 'She' is a subjective-case pronoun; 'him' is an objective-case pronoun. Hector
Big Trouble This all-female band did encounter big trouble after their only hit single in America, "Crazy World," thus they parted ways long after it. What a waste indeed! Joey F.
In-Grid This singer's first name is actually Ingrid, but the way she hyphenated it makes it look like "in grid", as in, "inside of a grid". Are we supposed to pronounce it that way?? Max E. Padd
The Maine It seems to imply that they're from the U.S. state of Maine, but that's not the case. K.N. Pepper
Cece Peniston I know it's her actual name (although Cece is short for Cecelia), but many people could misinterpret it as C.C. Peniston and wonder what the C's stand for (if they don't see it in print first). Joe
Acetone I think it's stupid to name a band after an organic chemical compound. K.N. Pepper
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros The 'Magnetic Zeros' part is what's peculiar about this name. 'Nuff said. Mr. Critic
The Enemy What a ridiculous thing to call your band! (Worse, there is more than one known band with this name.) Ralph
YoungBloodZ Since they capitalize the last letter of their name, should we read it as "Young Blood Z"? Liza Lott
Se7en 1) It looks stupid with the numeral 7 being used as a letter; that said, it should be read as "Sesevenen". 2) It's recursive anyway; spelling out the number and replacing the middle letter with the number itself. What's the point in that? 3) It refers to not one, not two, but THREE different musical acts (An American female soul singer, a Korean male hip-hop singer, and a male rapper with the band Brokencyde)! Three strikes, you're out! Mr. Critic
Sunflower Bean Sunflowers give seeds, not beans. Star City Punk

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.
