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:
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! Stu L. Pigeon
The Group With No Name Were they so desperate that they couldn't come up with a true name? Joe
The Olivia Tremor Control What's the point in using a girl's name and two random words in a name for an all-male band? (This is an actual indie band that was active mostly in the 1990s, with a hiatus for much of the 2000s, but they didn't really have any hits. Is that due in part to their strangely constructed name?) Ken
Faithless Literally it'd mean they don't believe anything. Mads
Luna Sea It's pronounced exactly like the word "lunacy", making me wonder if this was a play on that word. That being said, some people may assume that the name is Lunacy if they don't see it in print first.

**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
Platinum Weird Another band name that seems to be composed of two randomly chosen, unrelated words. Ralph
Black Lace Sounds more like a metal band than a children's band. Dominicmgm
Stellastarr It seems to suggest a solo female act, with the first-and-last names run together, but it's an indie rock band and only one of its members is female (but her name is not Stella). K.N. Pepper
Japan They're from the United Kingdom, not Japan. Dominicmgm
Deftones It sounds as though they're saying that everyone in this band is tone-deaf. Sorry, not good. Joe Joe
Daniel Boone It's the name of an American frontiersman who lived from 1734 to 1820. Yet a British singer born Peter Charles Green decided to rename himself after this guy. I think that's stupid. (Stonewall Jackson is another matter because *he* was actually named after the Confederate General, at birth.) Gus
The Jealous Girlfriends How is this name supposed to inspire anyone to cherish their music? And to make things all the more ridiculous, three of the four members are male. Tabitha Cartwright
Clooney Another manufactured girl pop band obviously named after George Clooney, with the assumption that they're all fans who swoon over him. Yes, the song "Shine Like You Mean It" is catchy enough, even if it's a little too pop for a lot of people. But since the song has very little exposure outside of background music for kids shows, it's kind of creepy for a pop group of the 2010s made up of girls probably under 25 whose music is aimed at girls under 14 to go ga-ga over a guy in his 50s. The Skuz
Boogie Pimps Sounds a bit childish and a bit sickish at the same time. Ty
The Whitest Boy Alive Seems to suggest an individual male performer, but it's a band instead. Stu L. Pigeon
Zuckerbaby This was a Canadian alternative band that had moderate success. Was it because their name sounds downright weird? Pete Worst
The Postal Service Isn't this a violation of copyright laws, since there is already an actual Postal Service? Opie M.
The F-Ups Were they really this bad to come up with this name? At least they didn't use the actual cussword. Gus
Tinie Tempah 1. Anyone who heard the name but not seen it in print would think it was "Tiny Temper". 2. Another rapper delibrately misspelling the words in his name, how original!  Steve

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.
