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 O'Jays||Can anyone hear this name nowadays without thinking of Oj Simpson?||Taylor Swift Kick In The Pants|
|The O'Kaysions||Most people who hear this name but haven't seen it in print will spell it The Occasions. And who would guess that there's an apostrophe after the O? That would imply that they're Irish, which they're not.||Candy Welty|
|O-Town||O-Town was the name of the town Rocko lived in on the Nickelodeon cartoon, "Rocko's Modern Life". Doesn't seem right as a band's name.||Amiko Hime|
|O-Town||It rhymes with Motown, so naturally it makes me think of that famous record label. But this group doesn't even sound like a Motown group, nor have they ever been signed to said label.||Susie Creamcheese|
|Obadiah Parker||It sounds like it should be a solo performer, but it's actually a group. However, lead singer Mat Weddle later assumed the name for himself. So that makes a bit of confusion.||Jonathan S.|
|Odin||This was an obscure Hair Metal band in the 1980s. Their lyrics were not Norse-based. Basically, they took a cool name and stuck it on a band that just didn't fit...||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Of Mice and Men||This just brings back boring memories of English class. (What's even weirder is that there's another band called Of Monsters and Men, whom you'd imagine would be even heavier, but they're the exact opposite style of this band!)||Crafthead|
|Of Montreal||They wanted people to think they came out of Montreal. Obviously not, because any band that comes out of Canada has to have some type of talent.||Travis|
|Oingo Boingo||What does it mean? It doesnt make sense. It Rhymes!||Billy Florio|
|OK Go||A typical command when starting a race or leaving. It just seems kinda awkward to use as a band name.||Timmy O'Toole|
|Old 97s||Of course 97 is old, It would be even dumber to name the band "Young 97s".||Jon|
|Old Man Markley||Sounds like a character from the first Home Alone movie, with a letter inserted in the middle of his main name. Also, this music act is a group of younger men, not an individual older guy as the name seems to imply.||Mr. Critic|
|The Olivia Tremor Control||What's the point in using a girl's name and two random words in a name for an all-male band? (This is an actual indie band that was active mostly in the 1990s, with a hiatus for much of the 2000s, but they didn't really have any hits. Is that due in part to their strangely constructed name?)||Ken|
|The Olympics||The Olympics is an event, not a group of people. If someone asked what your occupation or nationality was, "I'm an Olympic" would sound stupid.||Frank Hotdog|
|One Direction||Can you guys be more specific?||JeReMy|
|One eskimO||1) They have 4 members. 2) None of them are eskimos. 3) They capitalize the last letter in 'eskimo' instead of the first. Three strikes, you're out!||Rocky Rhoades|
|One Republic||I guess "One Democracy" would be too controversial.||MOR|
|OneRepublic||Exactly why does your band name not have a space betwwen "One and "Republic" and why is the R in "Republic" capitalized anyway? This band name makes my head hurt.||hamp|
|The Ones||It's a generic term. The ones that do what?? A little more information would be nice.||Da Doo Ron Ron Howard|
|Oran 'Juice' Jones||It must be cool to name yourself after O.J. Simpson, isn't it?||Richard Head|
|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|
|Orbit||It can easily be confused with two other artists, Orbital (a group) and William Orbit (a soloist), both which were more popular than this performer was.||Grady Brady|
|Orbital||An orbital what? Bands names consisting solely of an adjective seem incomplete.||Red Ruffcorn|
|Orchestral Manuevers in the Dark||Somebody tell them to turn on the lights.||freak|
|Orgy||A group of males... doesn't send a very good message...||Mega|
|The Original Caste||Most people who hear this name but haven't seen it in print will spell it The Original Cast.||Candy Welty|
|Orion The Hunter||Naming your band after a major constellation? I sense ego problems here...||GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Orson||Is the band named after one of the members, Orson Welles, or Orson Pig from the TV Show "Garfield"?||Paul Warren|
|The Other Two||The other two of what? And what set were they part of? It's not obvious to everyone who hears of them for the first time.||Cassandra|
|Oui 3||It's pronounced "we three" (since "oui" is French for "yes"). However, there's a problem because if 9 out of 10 people hear the name mentioned and they haven't seen it in print beforehand, they will naturally think "We Three".||Max|
|Our Heart's Hero||How can *anyone's* heart have a hero? If we had a section for Literally Impossible Band Names, this would be fitting to put there.||Joe|
|Ours||I'm sorry, but using a possessive pronoun for your band name is not very creative. It can get too confusing. "Hey, what band is that up there?" "It's Ours!" I can just see it now: an Abbott-and-Costello argument could ensue.||Cassandra|
|The Outhere Brothers||They're not actually brothers. Nor do any of them have 'Outhere' as a surname.||Jeremy|
|The Overprivileged||It sounds like this band is boasting that they have more advantages and opportunities than most other people, including most of those who listen to their music. That's not a good way to relate to an audience.||Candy Welty|
|Owl City||I never knew there was a city made just for owls! I don't think they know how to build a city!||BillyBobby|
|Oxide & Neutrino||Sounds like one of those really really expensive all-purpose cleaners you find on infomercials||Mac|

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.
