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.

The 20 most recent entries are listed below. There are 2179 Band Name Origin entries on the site.

Submitted by:
Big Trouble This all-female band did encounter big trouble after their only hit single in America, "Crazy World," thus they parted ways long after it. What a waste indeed! Joey F.
In-Grid This singer's first name is actually Ingrid, but the way she hyphenated it makes it look like "in grid", as in, "inside of a grid". Are we supposed to pronounce it that way?? Max E. Padd
The Maine It seems to imply that they're from the U.S. state of Maine, but that's not the case. K.N. Pepper
Cece Peniston I know it's her actual name (although Cece is short for Cecelia), but many people could misinterpret it as C.C. Peniston and wonder what the C's stand for (if they don't see it in print first). Joe
Acetone I think it's stupid to name a band after an organic chemical compound. K.N. Pepper
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros The 'Magnetic Zeros' part is what's peculiar about this name. 'Nuff said. Mr. Critic
The Enemy What a ridiculous thing to call your band! (Worse, there is more than one known band with this name.) Ralph
YoungBloodZ Since they capitalize the last letter of their name, should we read it as "Young Blood Z"? Liza Lott
Se7en 1) It looks stupid with the numeral 7 being used as a letter; that said, it should be read as "Sesevenen". 2) It's recursive anyway; spelling out the number and replacing the middle letter with the number itself. What's the point in that? 3) It refers to not one, not two, but THREE different musical acts (An American female soul singer, a Korean male hip-hop singer, and a male rapper with the band Brokencyde)! Three strikes, you're out! Mr. Critic
Sunflower Bean Sunflowers give seeds, not beans. Star City Punk
Contraband This early 90s rock supergroup tried to be a literal "counter-band" in the grunge era, only to flop in the end. Joey F.
The Chemical Brothers Once again, a double misnomer. They're not related as brothers, and neither one has Chemical as a surname. Gus
Joe Budden A male rapper. This is supposedly his real name, but it sounds too similar to Joe Biden, the Vice President of the United States from 2009-2017. That said, some people might think this guy is ripping off the former VP's name. Gus
Kicking Harold Why would you want to name a band this? It sounds mean spirited. Julia
The Record Company It just sounds so generic. Rock Maninoff
Eye Alaska Yeah, just randomly select a part of the body and a U.S. state, and put the words together; that's real creative. (Sarcasm intended.) Justin
Martha and the Muffins Is there any chance the "muffins" they're referring to are the ones between their legs? Personally, I'm okay with that, but a lot of other people wouldn't be, which is probably the point. The Skuz
Manchester Orchestra The name is doubly misleading: they're not an orchestra and not from Manchester. They're actually an indie rock group from Georgia. Autistic Otter
Ph.D. Do the members of this band really all have doctorate degrees? Somehow I doubt it. Gus
Orange Goblin Yes, this is a real band, namely a London-based heavy metal group. They must have had warped minds to come up with a name like this. John

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.
