Names -> Stupid Band Names -> U

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.

Entries Beginning with U

Submitted by:
The U-Krew If people hear this name but haven't seen it in print, they might spell "U" as "You" and "Krew" as "Crew." And not many people would guess that there's a dash in the name. Candy Welty
U2 I just don't get it. "U2" what? Sounds like half of an ungrammatical question, something that drives me nuts. z
Ugly Kid Joe If this kid Joe is so ugly, why would anyone want to see him? Vic George
Ultra Vomit I shouldn't even have to say why this is a terrible band name... GlamRockNinjaLord
Ultraspank Ew... (The worst part is actually explaining to people that I like their music, and dealing with the awkwardness that ensues.) Danny Hates Dubstep
Unarmed Enemies We'll take em' down easily! They're unarmed enemies! hekifier
Uncle Bonsai The name suggests a solo male performer (like Uncle Kracker), since an uncle is a male entity, but this is a band. Miss Elanius
Uncle Dog Does anyone have an uncle named Dog? Candy Welty
Uncle Kracker Sounds like something you don't want to take a bite out of, and Why did he have to call himself an Uncle? Acidic36
Uncle Kracker Come on now... what the hell was this guy smoking?? Did he think this was cool??? Geez! Jess
Uncle Kracker It sounds like a murderer! I imagine sort of a mix between Jack the Ripper and the guy from "I know what you did last summer". And in his song "Follow Me", he sings, "I swim through your veins like a fish in the sea", which really makes you think... Carrie
Uncle Kracker It's too rap like.  Mike Florio
Uncle Kracker When I hear the name, I picture some fat perverted guy with stubble sitting on the couch in one of those dark red rooms like you see in 70's drama/sex movies. (what the hell was wrong with the lighting in the 70's?) He's the uncle all the kids are afraid of!... OR it sounds like he's a clown at the carnival selling peanuts.  sarah
The Undecided They decided to form a band and decided on what songs to record and perform. So they aren't undecided! Yvette Bristle
Underoath Are these guys on trial or something? carly_carlz
Universal Robot Band They are humans, not robots. Candy Welty
Unknown Mortal Orchestra They must not be unknown if *some* people know about them. Including the word 'mortal' makes it unappealing as well. Curtis
The Unknowns All three members of this trio were not unknown at the time they had their hit "Melody For An Unknown Girl" in 1966. Steve Alaimo already had seven hit songs as a solo singer by that time, and the other two members--Mark Lindsay and Keith Allison--were in Paul Revere & The Raiders, who already had five hits by that time. Candy Welty
The Unlikely Candidates  In what election are these people running for? Opie M.
Unloco As in "not crazy"? As in sensible? If there's one thing a hard-rock band such as these guys probably don't want to be thought of as, it's sensible. Crafthead
The Unseen Okay, why on earth would anyone want to pay money to see this band if they can't see them? That Guy Over There
Upper Hutt Posse Why would anybody want to advertise that they come from this obscure New Zealand town? Greevis
UpperClassTrash Sounds like a bunch of hobos formed a band and now they're protesting against those who have some money! hekifier
Urge Overkill And how would you overkill an urge anyway? Little Old Lady Hoo
USA for Africa I know that the USA stood for United Support of Artist. But I did wonder back in 1985 and still do whether the continent of Africa really wanted the USA to be for them or not?  Peter
The Used This would sound better on a sign for a yard sale than a rock band. hekifier
Usher Does he work at a movie theatre? heather
Utah Saints 1) They're not from Utah. 2) They're not saints. elektronik

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.
