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 2100 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Two Nice Girls||This is a quintet, so why "TWO Nice Girls"? Or do they mean three of them aren't nice??||Valerie Cameron|
|Nana Grizol||Another name that seems to suggest a solo performer in first-last name form, but is really a band.||Quyjibo|
|Deadlift Lolita||First of all, I was unfamiliar with the word "deadlift", so I looked it up in trying to make sense of this band name. I found that it refers to a kind of weight lifting. That ties in with how the members of this duo are also bodybuilders. I also found out that they are a Japanese band in the process of looking things up. Since they gave themselves an English name, the must be trying to market themselves to Anglophone listeners (possibly among others). That makes it not entirely relevant for anyone to say that if I knew more about Japanese culture I might understand how their name might be more appealing to their native culture. The name strikes me as not too appealing because of the obscurity of the word "deadlift". Those unfamiliar with the word might envision a dead body being lifted, or a zombie lifting somebody or something. Such would likely be a distraction from making their music appealing. Furthermore for musicians to name their band for something else they are noted for, something so far removed from their music, might be a distraction and not the best way to encourage appreciation for their music.||Karen Smith|
|The Knocks||Phonetically, it could be too easily mistaken as 'The Knox', since it has exactly the same pronunciation.||Joe|
|MisterWives||Sounds kinda like an oxymoron, gender-wise.||Quyjibo|
|The Selecter||Yes, this is the actual spelling of the band's name. But most people who haven't heard of this band will likely spell it as Selector.||Joe|
|Hurray For The Riff Raff||How does "Riff Raff" have any connotations that would inspire much of anyone to hurry for the sake of those so designated? Hardly could one expect this name to gave a band much appeal.||Jean Goodsprings|
|Monty Python||I know this a British comedy group. But it still confounds me as to why they would name it after a snake.||Brit Boxx|
|Foamy Ed||It suggests a solo performer, possibly even a male rapper... but it turns out to be an all-female band instead. So it's yet another misleading name!||Quyjibo|
|Ice Cube||Seriously, what's wrong? This thing is not made of ice cubes.||Robert D. Arndt Jr.|
|Howling Bells||Another "literally impossible" band name. Bells are incapable of actually howling.||Mr. Critic|
|Pink Lady||First of all, there's 2 ladies here and they are Japanese so their skin color wouldn't be 'pink' but more like 'yellowish'.||Pacific Pirate|
|The National||The National what? National Bank? National Hebrew? National League? The name is too vague.||Frank Hotdog|
|Killing Miranda||Another repulsive name for a band. They must have sick minds to come up with something like this.||Mr. Critic|
|Broods||A brood is a small group of children. If you have more than one group, they become broods. However, there are only two members of this band, and neither of them are children.||Professor Oblivion|
|Magic Dirt||What is the name supposed to signify? No dirt is magic!||Amanda Svenson|
|Dick Delicious and the Tasty Testicles||Someone once told me, if I were to put two random words together, there is a 5% chance of it sounding awesome and a 95% chance of it being a rock band, but even I wouldn't have ever thought this up.||Kestral|
|Blonde Redhead||This name is an oxymoron; you can't be a redhead and blonde at the same time.||The Mole|
|Johnny Truant||Yet another name that suggests a solo performer in first-name-last-name form but is actually a group.||Joe|
|Satanicpornocultshop||Too long; contains a few raunchy words mixed in.||H|

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.
