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 2020 Band Name Origin entries on the site.
|Aunt Sally||It's misleading because it clearly suggests the name of an individual female performer, but it's a band instead, and none of the members are named Sally. This is deceiving since the lead singer is female.||Ludwig Chris|
|Turn Off the Stars||It's not possible to turn off the stars. If we had a "Literally Impossible Band Names" section on this site, it would fit there!||Lacey|
|Girls Under Glass||They are males, not females. Therefore this name is a misnomer.||Future Backer|
|The Outhere Brothers||They're not actually brothers.||Jeremy|
|Caroline's Spine||It seems to imply the name of a solo female performer(even if the "spine" part was just part of a stage name), but it's not. It's actually an all-male band, so it's misleading.||Lefty Lucy|
|Angelo||The name suggests a solo male perfomer since Angelo is a male's name, but it's a band, and none of the members are named Angelo (They are all Japanese and have Japanese names).||Astrid|
|Genkaku Allergy||What the heck is a genkaku and how would someone be allergic to it?||Daniel|
|Birds of Tokyo||They are from Australia, not Japan.||Beverly Dreiles|
|Mannheim Steamroller||This name suggests a German metal band, but it's not.||Sarah D.|
|All About Eve||It seems to suggest the name of a band with a woman named Eve as the lead singer, but this is an all male band.||Brianna N.|
|Calm Chaos||Even though it's alliterated, it's stupid because it's an oxymoron as chaos isn't calm.||A.J.|
|The Hush Sound||Isn't that essentially and oxymoron? Doesn't hush mean to cease making sound?||Priscilla Gadsden|
|Daniel Amos||It suggests the name of a solo male performer but it's a band and none of the members are named Daniel. This might confuse people since the singers are male.||Marina|
|SunnO)))||It's pronounced "sun" but almost no one is going to think it's spelled this way if they hear it first but don't see it in print. Some people might think it is pronounced "sun-o" instead, and using parenthesis in a band name is just plain stupid.||Sarah D.|
|Bill Haley and His Comets||Comets cannot sing or play musical instruments||Sarah D.|
|The Germs||Does that mean if I listen to their music, I will get sick?||Alexis P.|
|Sun City Girls||They are males, not females, and they are not from anywhere named Sun City.||Daniel|
|Thee Michelle Gun Elephant||What the heck is this name supposed to mean? It just sounds like they picked 3 unrelated words and a girls name at random. And also, why do they use "Thee" instead of "the". "Thee" is an archaic word so it sounds weird in that regard.||Daniel|
|The Who||I can picture someone asking another person "What is your favourite band?". The other person says "The Who", and then other one says "The Who?" and it goes on and on...||Maggie Olsen|
|Rufus||None of the members are named Rufus.||Maggie Olsen|

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.
