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 2056 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|The Gazette||Why would a METAL band want to name themselves after a word for a simply boring newspaper?||Erin|
|Heidi||This name implies one person(namely, a pseudonym for a female performer named Heidi), but this is actually a Visual Kei rock band, and none of its members are named Heidi.||Daniel S.|
|Lethal Bizzle||What does "bizzle" even mean?||Emmy Kay Butanone|
|Puddle of Mudd||Mudd is a solid. Should be Puddle of Muddy Water!||Robert D. Arndt Jr.|
|The High-Lows||Isn't this name an oxymoron? "High" is supposed to be the opposite of "Low", so therefore the name contradicts itself.||Rosa|
|Lethal||There are 2 heavy metal bands with this name: An American band formed in 1982, and an Argentine band formed in 1988. How come the second band didn't know that their name was already taken?||Lefty Lucy|
|Izabel Varosa||It's stupid, because it looks like it should be one person (a female soloist), but instead it's a mostly-male (or all-male, it's hard to tell with the androgynous looks) band. That being said, how they came up with this name is beyond my comprehension.||Noah|
|Babyraids Japan||How would one "babyraid" something, let alone a country? And what the heck does it mean? It doesn't make sense.||Phoebe Miller|
|Charisma.com||It's stupid, because web addresses are not very good names to use for a band. Did they just pick a random word and add ".com" to the end of it? And if they had a website, would it be called "Charisma.com.com"?||Frieda Evans|
|The Dead Pop Stars||None of the five members of this band are literally dead (as of 2017). And if they really were, they wouldn't be singing or playing any music. And also, they are not even a pop music band, they are actually a punk rock band, so it's misleading in a couple ways.||Frieda Evans|
|Moose Blood||This name leaves me at a loss to imagine how it might have positive appeal as a band name. Could it have something to do with the fact that the band is British, and the word "moose" might still be a relative novelty in their home country? The largest member of the deer family, Alces alces, although panarctic in distribution, has historically been called moose mainly in North America. In British English it has historically been mainly called elk.||Karen Smith|
|Judy and Mary||If you see this name without knowing who they are, you might think this is a female duo consisting of members named Judy and Mary, but it's not. It's actually a mostly-male band (with a female vocalist). Therefore, this name is misleading.||Chris Chendo|
|Marcy Playground||This name might look like a female band to some people since Marcy is a female name, but this band only has males in it.||Natalie|
|Lights Over Paris||They are from Los Angeles, not Paris. Unless this band somehow has ties to France, I don't see the point in them using Paris in their name.||Lefty Lucy|
|Louise Attaque||This name looks like it's an individual person but it's a band.||Radiance|
|Dollie de Luxe||This name might look like the name of a female singer(possibly French), but it's actually a female Norwegian duo, and neither of the 2 members are named Dollie.||Chris Chendo|
|Weather Girls||There are actually 2 bands with this name; an American duo formed in 1977, and a Japanese idol group formed in 2010. Why didn't the first band sue the second band for using their name?||Beverly|
|Christine and the Queens||The name clearly suggests it should be a band but it's just 1 person and her name isn't Christine nor is she a queen.||A-Lean|
|Quincy||This name looks like a first name of a male performer since Quincy is a man's name, but instead it's a band (of all men), with none of them named Quincy.||Future Backer|
|Abigail Williams||This name suggests a female performer (a la Pixie Lott), but it's actually an all-male trio.||Natalie|

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.
