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 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||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|
|Uncle Kracker||It's too rap like.||Mike Florio|
|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|
|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|
|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|

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.
