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 1892 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|She & Him||It's just that it's grammatically incorrect and there are enough ways they could have avoided that. (also, She & Him is the same band as She And Him, sorry for that.)||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Blind Guardian||I wouldn't trust a blind person to guard anything!||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Megadeth||I've seen this misspelled SO many times in record stores, it's not even funny...||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Buckethead||Sounds like a prank you'd play on the dumb kid in school.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Slow||This Canadian punk band is anything but slow.||James Ramone|
|Childish Gambino||It sounds like a spoiled six-year-old brat playing mobster.||Todd W. Zimmerman|
|Phantogram||It sounds like a telegram sent by comic book hero the Phantom.||Peter Paul Mounds|
|Madison Beer||This is her actual name, but most people who haven't heard of her but see the name will assume it's an alcoholic beverage. Plus, this performer is underage (and will be until 2020).||Chris|
|Slaughter||Two bands have this name: A Canadian Thrash Metal band and an American Glam Metal Band. Two completely opposite-genre groups have the same name! That is why it is stupid.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Foo Fighters||Dave Grohl, this band's founder, says that it is the dumbest possible band name. Therefore, he admits his own band's name is a stupid one.||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Damn Yankees||They're all proud Americans, so, aren't they insulting themselves?||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Sleez Beez||If you are going to have a cheesy-sounding band name, at least use proper grammar!||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Zeds Dead||Whatever happened to using an apostrophe?||Crafthead|
|Abandoned Pools||How could abandoned pools perform music? And to whom would ANYTHING abandoned perform?||Daisy Pappus|
|Odin||This was an obscure Hair Metal band in the 1980s. Their lyrics were not Norse-based. Basically, they took a cool name and stuck it on a band that just didn't fit...||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|The Moldy Peaches||Peaches are a delicious fruit when just the right ripeness. Trouble is, they go quickly from being too hard to starting to rot. One tries to catch them when they are just right. But it can only be a disappointment when they start to go bad, often molding. There's nothing positively appealing in such a disappointment that could make it an attractive band name!||Jacqui O'Day|
|Milky Chance||Oh, look, it's random word combination syndrome again!||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|InMe||Just makes me think of tapeworms or something else freaky like that.||Crafthead|
|Au5||Sounds too much like a deadmau5 rip-off.||Crafthead|
|X||Is this a real band? I can't find out from amiright.com. That's because although this site has links to a band named "X", and clicking on such a link on amiright.com would ordinarily bring up the artist summary for the band in question. But all the links for "X" that I've clicked on on this site just bring up the "X" section of the index to artist summaries. That section DOES include a listing for "X", but that link only brings right back the "X" section of the index. Searching for the band on search engines that search the whole internet must be at least as problematic.||R. Jeanine O'Succinate|

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.
