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 2078 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Soft Ballet||Their music is anything but soft!||Belinda Trucklisle|
|The Kills||1) It could be mistaken for The Killers, a more well-known alternative band; 2) It's way too repulsive.||Mr. Critic|
|Bennie K||It looks like it should be a solo person, but instead it's a female duo.||Rhonda Hindle|
|Sunny Day Real Estate||It's obvious that these guys don't sell houses, and there is no connection between real estate and music.||Obi Lame Kenobi|
|I Am David Sparkle||First, nobody in the band is named David Sparkle. Second, any band name that starts with "I Am" sounds plain stupid.||Frieda Evans|
|Matenrou Opera||It's not an opera; it's a visual kei metal band.||Belinda Trucklisle|
|Germans||None of the members of this band are German; they're all Canadians.||Natalie Benson|
|Carolina Chocolate Drops||Sounds more like it should be the name of a candy shop than that of a band.||Chris|
|Tame Impala||Is tame an adjective or verb in this case?||Belinda Trucklisle|
|Passpo||It kind of looks like they were going to spell it "Passport" but they forgot to type in the last two letters.||Chris Chendo|
|Imaginary Johnny||The name seems to suggest a solo male performer, but it's a band, and none of the members are named Johnny (although one ex-member did have a given name of John).||Mr. Critic|
|Imaginary Johnny||If he's imaginary, does that mean that his music is just a figment of our imagination?||Chris Chendo|
|Skylark||Hadn't groups named after birds or cars been done to death by the times these guys were active?||Lance Crackers|
|Urge Overkill||And how would you overkill an urge anyway?||Little Old Lady Hoo|
|The Stalin||This was a real punk rock band active in 1980. Why would anyone want to name their band after a Soviet dictator responsible for the deaths of millions?||Daniel|
|Juice=Juice||It looks like it should be pronounced "Juice equals Juice" as if the equal sign was pronounced, but it's not the case here.||Gina|
|Passenger||This name would suggest that this is a group using a singular form of their name. But instead, it's just a male singer. How confusing is that?||Frank Hotdog|
|Rosabel||This name suggests a first name for a solo performer, but it's actually a male duo.||Bryan|
|Sandi Patti||I know that's her real name, but it just makes me think of sand in my hamburger patty.||Guy|
|Guniw Tools||What the heck is a "Guniw tool" and what would it be used for? And how do you pronounce it anyway?||Chris Chendo|

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.
