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 2367 Band Name Origin entries on the site.

Submitted by:
Spoon Any time you name your band after a kitchen utensil, it's going to sound ridiculous and stupid. :P Edward
The Rembrandts Neither of them have the surname Rembrandt. Steve Martin Short
Dead & Company They're not dead at all. Besides, dead people can't perform. Ben
Schoolhouse Rock The majority of their songs are jazz, not rock. Brad
Royal Blood Neither member of the band has proven whether they're actually of noble birth or not. Jay
Rose Royce This is a band, but it could be mistaken as the first and last name of a solo performer (which is NOT the case). Joe
Heaven 17 Where are all the other 16 heavens? Furthermore, there weren't 17 people in the band to make the number, there were only 3 maximum.  Steve
Post Malone Who would name their kid Post? It would better fit an NBA player. Lance Crackers
Cannons There are no cannons in this band, and none of these musicians have the last name Cannon. At least their music's cool. Sheila Oh
Joyce Manor Yet another name that suggests the first and last name of a soloist (possibly a female), but is actually a band. Mr. Critic
Greta Van Fleet You'd be forgiven for thinking that this was a solo female singer, but you'd be absolutely wrong. It's actually a 4 man band, I know I don't get it either! Why they gave their band a name that has people thinking they're a solo woman singer is beyond me, but it certainly is stupid. There's just absolutely no good reason for doing that. Edward
Yazz This act (a solo female from England) could easily be confused with Yaz, a Brit new-wave band also known as Yazoo in its native country. Mr. Critic
Lukas Graham The name suggests a solo performer. But it's not. It's just a band. And the lead singer is not called Lukas Graham, but Lukas Forchhammer. (**Editor's note: PLEASE do not use smartquote apostrophes when submitting. Use neutral quotation marks only. One way to do this is to submit from a PC, not a phone.) BrilliantJ8
Planet P Project There is no such planet as Planet P. And Pluto has been deplanetized so the band's name can't refer to it. Rock Maninoff
We Came As Romans As far as I'm aware none of the band members are actually Italian. Jay
Sponge Cola Is that a rejected name for a kind of soda? Chris
Mallory Knox The name suggests a solo performer, possibly a female, but this act is a band of all males. Cassandra
Halifax Halifax is a city in Nova Scotia, Canada, but this band is American. (However, two of the members played in a hockey tournament there in the early 2000s, which is supposedly why they gave their band this name. Still, I think it's silly for an American band to name itself after a major city from outside the U.S.) K.N. Pepper
Scary Pool Party This name sounds like it should be a group, but it's just one person (Alejandro Aranda). Katt
Lizzo Her real name doesn't even have a form of Elizabeth in it. Did she name herself because thought she was Queen Elizabeth or Liz Taylor? Sheila Oh

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.
