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 1804 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Orion The Hunter||Naming your band after a major constellation? I sense ego problems here...||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Shor Patrol||Most people will think that the first word is "Shore" if they hear the name but haven't seen it in print.||Candy Welty|
|Rob Zombie||If a zombie walked up to me and said "hi, my name is Rob", I would laugh.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|The Band||Yes, we are completely aware that you are a band, now please come up with a less generic sounding thing to call yourselves!||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Run Kid Run||It sounds like another direct command, possibly inspired by a certain line from the movie Forrest Gump. Why a band would choose this for a name, I just don't understand.||Cassandra|
|The View||At least they're British, so they may not be aware of the annoying connotations of those words together in that order in America.||JeReMy|
|Kottonmouth Kings||Kottonmouth is not a monarchy. Plus, why misspell it?||Erica Tetralix|
|A. Pink||Whenever the word "A" is used at the beginning of a name, it gets excluded in alphabetization (which is why I typed a period after the "A"; hopefully this will make a difference when it gets approved), which would leave this band name treated as "Pink"... which has already been taken by an American female pop singer who is very well known.||Mister Critic|
|Parliament||The Parliament is the the group that rules the British government, but these guys are all Americans. That's probably why they had to add "Funkadelic" to their name (they even changed it to that name eventually).||Reggie Pillbox|
|Franky Lee||The name suggests a solo performer, but it's actually a Swedish rock band.||Evan Shortoria|
|Vivian Campbell||Ummm...this guitarist is a straight man, not a woman, or a cross dresser; however, I have never seen another man with the first name Vivian! (Even though the name is more common for females than for males)||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Incubus||An incubus is a type of demon, which doesn't fit the musical style of this band, not in the slightest!||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Wizzard||I don't get why there is an extra Z in this band's name. It still sounds the same when you hear it out loud.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Hawkwind||Makes me think of bird droppings.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Animotion||Not a real word -- what does it mean? Plus, it sounds too much like "An Emotion".||Trina Lufkin|
|Martha And The Muffins||Contrary to the name, all musicians in this band were human beings.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Death||It's such a depressing thing to call a musical group.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Mott The Hoople||This would be a good name for an imaginary friend of Willy Wonka's, however, as a band name it sort of freaks me out.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Dead Sara||That's not very nice. I'm sure girls named Sara might find this offensive.||Alex|
|Metal Church||I thought this was an actual religious sect that worships heavy metal music. It's not and that kind of sucks...||GlamRockNinjaLord|

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.
