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 1818 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Steel Panther||Reminds me too much of that one Mark Wahlberg movie...||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Crashdiet||European Glam Metal Revival group. As with Black Stone Cherry, it just looks like the band members randomly put words together so they could have a name and then got too lazy to bother changing it.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Saigon Kick||Instantly makes me picture a really dumb looking energy drink.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|The Stabilizers||Just what does their music stabilize? What does any music stabilize, for that matter?||Francine Harper|
|Grandmaster Flash||Isn't he in the Justice League? Wait...he's not? What?||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Yogurt With Sprinkles||I'm hungry! come on, what's with naming bands after food?||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Chumbawamba||Sounds like a drunk person interpreting baby talk.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|The Cars||Cars don't sing. If this makes sense as a band name, then maybe they should make a car called a Tenor.||Joanna Hawthorne|
|Aztec Camera||New wave, indie pop Scottish band that was together in the 1980s. The name is just nonsense. It seems like they just took two random words and put them together. If there's any meaning to the name I can't figure it out. It's dumb and weird. One word is an Indian tribe from the area of what is now Mexico and the other word is a machine for making photographs. Why on earth would you put those together in a band name?!||Edward|
|Black Sabbath||Just look at the initials...seriously, I wouldn't want to name my awesome metal something that can be referred to as...yeah...||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Furious George||First of all, the name implies a solo male artist (possibly a rapper) named George, but instead it's a band. Secondly, it seems they took the name of a classic children's book and altered the initial letter. Not a good name choice for any music act, sorry.||Mr. Critic|
|Anvil||I'll assume this band name is a joke, as an anvil is a heavy metal object and this group is a Heavy Metal band, but even still you have to admit it's a lot less interesting than Spinal Tap.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Athena Cage||Trying to put a Greek goddess in a cage would be a BAD idea!||Francine Harper|
|Eagulls||It may seem clever to combine the names of two kinds of birds, but when spoken, it sounds too much like the name of a more popular band, the Eagles.||JD|
|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|

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.
