Names -> Stupid Band Names -> X

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 X

Submitted by:
X Same deal as "M" of "Pop Muzik" fame. Try to search it, and what do you get? Anything and anybody on the Internet with an "X" in the name. Nice going, people! Jonathan S.
X Is this a real band? I can't find out from That's because although this site has links to a band named "X", and clicking on such a link on would ordinarily bring up the artist summary for the band in question. But all the links for "X" that I've clicked on on this site just bring up the "X" section of the index to artist summaries. That section DOES include a listing for "X", but that link only brings right back the "X" section of the index. Searching for the band on search engines that search the whole internet must be at least as problematic. R. Jeanine O'Succinate
X The name makes me think of 1) Porno films, 2) Malcolm X, and 3) the Manson "family".  duntcallmehuman
X Never name your band after a single letter. It pretty much means you guys are trying to be exactly before another band, but I don't see any names starting with X that could have been the band members' main influences, or anything like that. Gee
X Ambassadors For the same reason as X-Japan. Nobody knows what the "X" stands for. Opie M.
X Japan Japanese visual kei band, called this outside of Japan, due to otherwise sharing a name with an American punk band (X). The thing I don't get is why call your band a one letter name in the first place? GlamRockNinjaLord
Xololanxinxo Not only is it very, very hard to pronounce, and spell, I don't even think it's even a word. hamp
XTC I can see the naming process for this band: Oh, let's just see which letters we should string together to come up with a band name, shall we? Not knowing or caring that it sounds like the word "ecstasy"... Peter

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.
