Names -> Stupid Band Names -> Z

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 Z

Submitted by:
Zapp Most people will spell the name as Zap if they hear it but haven't seen it in print. Candy Welty
Zapped By A Million Volts The band members would all be dead if they were truly zapped by a million volts of electricity. Candy Welty
Zebrahead Does having this name attract people or something? Is it cool to be half animal? They must have been desperate. Trevor
Zeds Dead Whatever happened to using an apostrophe? Crafthead
Zoot Woman Two reasons why this name is stupid. 1) 'Woman' in the name implies that it should be a female band... but none of the members are female. 2) I've never seen the word "zoot" followed by any word other than "suit", in reference to zoot suits, which were articles of clothing developed in the early 20th century. Mr. Critic
Zuckerbaby This was a Canadian alternative band that had moderate success. Was it because their name sounds downright weird? Pete Worst
The Zutons What the heck is a zuton? Tommy
Zuzu's Petals sound like the name of a flower shop. hamp
Zwol He's Walter Zwol, and although Zwol is his last name, some people won't spell it right if they hear it but haven't seen the spelling. Candy Welty
ZZ Top It looks like some kind of a really sinister secret code to me, but I can't fathom why. GlamRockNinjaLord
ZZ Top Dusty Hill says they wanted to be the last group in the record rack. OK, for the opposite extreme I guess someone should try AA Bottom for a group name.... Dano
ZZ Top May have gotten the name from blues artist Z.Z. Hill. But if you watch a top spin, it'll put you to sleep. The same could be said about their albums. rat

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.
