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.

Submitted by:
Klaxons Nobody knows what a klaxon is. Lance Crackers
Rainbow Kitten Surprise What is a rainbow kitten? And is one surprising somebody or BEING surprised? Farlow Maitland
Ghostface Killah If you're gonna name yourself after the villain from "Scream", at least know how to spell his name. Reggie Pillbox
The Dream Academy A school to prepare for the Dream War? Opie M.
Dream Theater The only way to see their work is to fall asleep? Opie M.
The Sherbs I'm glad they changed their nsme to Sherbet. Otherwise, I wouldn't have known what a sherb meant. Rock Maninoff
Catherine Wheel It seems to suggest a solo female performer in first-and-last-name format, but this is a band, and all of its members are male. Gus
Cold War Kids These guys aren't even old enough to remember the Cold War. Opie M.
Treaty Of Paris How can a treaty perform music?? Natalie Stonecipher
Brooklyn Bridge Bridges can't sing! Adrienne Schnell
Device There were two bands of this name. One was a 1980s pop rock trio that had prolific songwriter Holly Knight on keyboards and vocals, the other a 2010s industrial metal outfit. So sad, both "devices" ceased to function musically when they couldn't continue. Joey F.
Gov't Mule Makes it sound like the government is hiring people to smuggle drugs. I could be afraid that any of its members might end up like poor Lucy In "Maria Full Of Grace". Tabitha Cartwright
Dismember So...is this band's goal to break up? If that's the case, why bother to even form the band in the first place? Maude
Gloria Mundi This name suggests it should be one person (a solo singer), but instead it's a band. Brionna Secret
Broken Social Scene A scene cannot be broken, social or otherwise. Lance Crackers
The Hives I generally avoid bands named after a skin condition. Lance Crackers
The Vines Vines do not sing, of course. Rock Maninoff
Captain Beefheart If this was a proposed superhero name, I can see why it would be rejected. Too uncreative. It's no better as a band name. Harry
Museum Mouth Seems like yet another pair of randomly chosen words. Why do bands do this sort of thing?? It makes no sense!

**Reminder: This section is only for actual performer names. Lately there have been many incoming submissions with very wacky names that likely don't pertain to actual bands; googling them produces no results, and they don't even appear on Allmusic.com; therefore they've been rejected. So PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT ANY MORE MADE-UP PERFORMER NAMES TO THIS SECTION. Thank you for your cooperation.
 Editor's note
The Group With No Name Were they so desperate that they couldn't come up with a true name? Joe

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.
