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:
69 Boyz This name could be misconstrued as stupid because it seems to imply that this group has 69 members (in which case they would likely not all fit on the stage!). But that's not the case. In fact, the number 69 supposedly refers to the year 1969, which is apparently the birth year of all four members of this band (which would make sense, given that they debuted in 1994; in that case they would've all been 25 at the time). Ed
Streetlight Manifesto Yet another name that seems to be composed of two randomly chosen words. Quyjibo
Bullet For My Valentine Let me guess; Since "My Bloody Valentine" was already taken, they wanted a name that makes you think of that innovative and legendary noise rock band. The Skuz
The Cast of Cheers Because the cast of Cheers don't even wanted to listen to music. Nor it wasn't anything related to the TV show "Cheers." Johnny Nguyen
Cattle Decapitation To be fair, the names "Abattoir" and "Slaughterhouse" were taken. Joel Martinez
Soophie Nun Squad What the heck is this supposed to mean?! Is this just another name with randomly picked words that don't necessarily go well together? Joe
Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13 This sounds like Ed Wood's take on "Some Like It Hot". Plus it's too long for a band name. TheJediGuitarist
The War On Drugs This proves that there still is a war on drugs, because the people that named this band must have been on drugs. Frosty The Cat
Suite Caroline It's pronounced just like "Sweet Caroline", the title of a Neil Diamond song, therefore it is phonetically confusing. Quyjibo
Fashawn Many people could interpret it as a misspelling of the word "fashion". Russ
Inspiral Carpets Carpets which cannot sing because, well, they're carpets. Lance Crackers
Band Of Horses Sounds like a band that Mr. Ed (the talking horse) would fit in with. Quyjibo
New Bomb Turks It just seems too repulsive IMO. Ed
Common This is the rapper, not band. He created a common media elsewhere...... Muhammad Firza
Doping Panda Seriously...what is it with these Japanese-based rock bands coming up with names that randomly pick two unrelated words?? Quyjibo
Nobodyknows Nobody knows what? And why'd they have to run the two words together?? Daniel
Girl in a Coma It seems to suggest a solo female performer, but it's a group instead. But at least they're all ladies. Quyjibo
Kara There are actually two known bands with this name. What makes it even worse is that it could suggest a solo female, since Kara is a girls name. Mr. Critic
Spoon Spoon is a folk rock band from Austin, Texas. And this probably wouldn't be a stupid name if it wasn't for the fact that there was already a band called The Spoons that was formed in Canada in 1979.  Frosty The Cat
Earth Opera It's a psychedelic rock group, not an opera. Keira Farnell

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.
