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 1989 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Sonia Dada||It clearly suggests a full name for a solo female act, but it's a band... and none of its members are even female!||Mr. Critic|
|The Lovin' Spoonful||No band could fit into a spoon!||Francine Harper|
|Iamamiwhoami||Looks like they placed several little words together, it looks so messy. Worse, they don't even capitalize it.||Quyjibo|
|The Marshall Tucker Band||None of the members are named Marshall Tucker.||Sweet Anne|
|Twenty One Pilots||There are 2 people in the band, not 21||Sweet Anne|
|Lucy Pearl||It clearly suggests the name of a solo female performer but it's a band and most of the members are males. There is only one female and her name isn't Lucy. I wonder how they came up with the name...||Frisky|
|Flying Burrito Brothers||It's a group of all men but they're not brothers, so the name is misleading.||Sweet Anne|
|American Authors||One time my cousin told her musically illiterate friend that the American Authors are coming to her town. Her friend said, is it going to be at the library? The name isn't stupid, but misleading.||Sweet Anne|
|Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick and Tich||It's bad enough they couldn't think of one name to call themselves. But they could have made this one a little shorter.||Richard Head|
|Within Temptation||Since when does temptation have an inside?||Harry Palms|
|Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes||Harold Melvin was not the lead singer on any of their hits, as the name implies; Teddy Pendergrass was.||Robert Jon Brown|
|Lamb of God||It's not a christian band (as the name suggests), therefore the name is misleading.||Ashley|
|Molly Hatchet||It sounds like the name of a female singer but it's a band with only male members.||Charlotte|
|The Yin Yang Twins||The name suggests that it's a duo consisting of a pair of twins but it's a hip hop duo and the members aren't twins.||Erin|
|V*Enna||What the heck is this supposed to mean? It suggests "Vienna", but what, if anything is their connection to that city? And as what is billed as a "Christian band," how strange that they employ an asterisk in a manner often used to indicate that a letter has been blocked out of a word inclined to be deemed "offensive"!||Dorothy Jansen|
|Deadmau5||It looks like it should be read as "dead maw five"; using a numeral 5 for an 'S' is just plain stupid.||Marina|
|Rufus||Isn't it just downright weird (not to mention invasion of privacy, if you ask me) to give a band a name of a person that NO ONE in the band has!?||Chowder|
|Stranger Than Fiction||There are actually about four or five bands with this name. One of them was Elliot Smith's old high school band, and another is a bunch of Cowboy Junkies wannabes from Toronto. Those two are decent bands, but with nearly a half a dozen bands with the same name, it lacks originality.||The Skuz|
|Flesh For Lulu||Not sure how they came up with this name, but I doubt that it has anything to do with 60s-70s Scottish singer-actress Lulu.||Lauren|
|Rotting Christ||Can someone say "trying too hard to be edgy"?||Danny Hates Dubstep|

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.
