Worst Name For A BandThese are the weirdest and silliest names for a band.
The Top Ten
What in gods name is this name?
What does it mean?
It's creative! It's just so awful saying it in a sentence. - logblobo
Where is garbage? Don't you think that if it is insulting itself it should be up here.
this name obviously came from someone that wasn't creative
and why isn't The Butthole Surfers on this list - OzzyVanHalen
This is like the worst name ever for anythingV 7 Comments
WHAT THE FLIPPING FISH FINGERS AND CUSTARD? NO ONE WILL INSULT MY BAND. I KNOW WORSE NAMES FOR BANDS. Queen is the greatest band of all time, besides the Beatles. They are recognized all over the world. Every Queen song is a story. The way all the songs flow is... Well, no pun a intended, a kind of magic. - ImAKillerQueen
Our friend ImAKillerQueen is half right: Queen are indeed a kind of magic, and a damned good magic at that. they are second only to The Beatles at the art of music. Freddie Mercury remains, more than 20 years after shuffling his mortal coil, the gold standard of rock frontmen.
however, the issue here is another one entirely. it has to be admitted that, kickass as their music is, Queen isn't the greatest name a band ever had. they certainly take a lot more abuse over Freddie's homosexuality than they would've of they'd called themselves King or Kaiser or Monarch.
(note to fellow fans: yes, I'm aware that the name has nothing to do with sexuality, that Freddie came up with it before he knew himself. the name was meant to reflect a certain regal, aristocratic quality they wanted to have some fun with and/or at the expense of. we know that, but does the proverbial man in the street? )
Nickelback is an excellent band name. It's not stupid, and neither are they cliche. People just don't like Nickelback. Also contrary to popular opinion, all of their albums DON'T sound the same. People who don't like them are simply biased and ignorant of the truth. Either that, or they've only ever heard their more salacious singles. Disliking them for this is simply stupid. Many other popular (and more well liked) bands have songs with sexual themes. If you hate Nickelback, then you're just a biased hypocrite.
Nickelback what sucks, just a commercial cliche hard rock band. Why is Nirvana on this list? What is so bad about their name? One of the best bands of all time. And toad the wet sprocket is my personal favorite band. I was able to look past the funny name.
I can't remember how they picked that name up for their band but I remember that the back of a 25 cent thing is not even symbolic, just purely exists for the sake of having a mindelessly marketable name... - PinkflASHES
I guess someone used Pennyback, Dimeback, etc
I can't believe queen is number 2 this should be 2
screw all those nu metal fans! slayer should not be here the idiots here think that bullet for my valentine is better name than slayer! screw you posers! thats right you are all posers if you vote for slayer! slayer is great name for a metal band! limb bizkit should be on here not slayer!
I heard that their band name is inappropriate so I looked it up. Do NOT look it up! Oh my god. - SammySpore
The origins behind the name of this band are more horrifying than their horrifyingly bad music.V 1 Comment
It's strange, because Nirvana is also on the list of the BEST band names. But seriously, Nirvana is a genius name! I wish I came up with that!
Another name for heaven but ironically, those people who wants to die because they think that there is a better place called nirvana. (but actually dying internationally will make it worse) - ronlunaV 1 Comment
For all I know, their music could be utterly fantastic. I'm just wondering what drugs they were high on when they thought up "Hootie and the Blowfish". - argon8
I guess its kinda weird but there awesome - 7beach77
Remember the black guy is not Hootie then he is Blowfish?
Not very good... imagine their music?! - iTunesJunkyV 1 Comment
That's the point, it's supposed to make it seem like a child made it up but it's really a rock band. - Songsta41
I'm Pretty sure the marketing idea is "Lets have the most ridicolus name possable, so everyone knows that the clowns are coming when we show off our tour posters".
When small girls make der own band... This happensV 1 Comment
Didn't they steal this from the band Frog the Wet Sprocket?
Just hearing this band name made my day.
The name = "Russell Crowe's Band"'s (a F. )= the name of a song by Frenzal Rhomb which pours dirt on Russell's fairly vain attempt to reign as the frontman of a real band on a Friday night @ your local.V 1 Comment
No self respecting man would be in this band named Heart.
NO, Linkin Park are my favorite bands of all time! Whoever put this on this list should get punch in a face and give them a "blackout"!
What's that? Linkin park... They always imitate anything,
I hate it,... Different songs that I mean...?
The name says it all, THE NAKED BROTHERS BAND, what is the first thing that comes into your head when you think of THE NAKED BROTHER BAND, and why is 30 second to mars on this list, they are awesome and have an awesome name, THE NAKED BROTHER BAND, anyone could be shocked that they are not one.
It's a pretty bad name, I agree. but you do have to excuse them because nat and alex were kids when they thought of this name. what do you expect two kids below ten years old to name their band? The well-dressed brothers band?
Led Zeppelin doesn't deserve to be in this list, but the people in this group aren't naked, definitely the worst name for a band. - LedZeppelinIsAwesomeV 1 Comment
Very imaginative three BROTHERS with the last name of JONAS wow! I wish I could have thought of that! I mean seriously come on!
I bet my life that there isn't a crapper name.
Is this supposed to be some "We're so out of this world" thing. Yeah, um, it's retarded. - awesomenessdefined
You can't go to mars from here in just 30 secs - ronluna
Except for the boys in this band who appear to like boys who like other boys who like boys. - awesomenessdefined
Uhhh... Don't you know you're identifying yourself with disease carrying vermin? Or maybe that's what you are lol! - moose4life19
