Top 10 Funniest Metal Band Names

Whilst browsing through the Jazz section in HMV, my friend called me over to look at the Metal section and we spent the best part of half an hour laughing at the odd and funny band names. Imagine asking, "Do you have... "

The Top Ten

1 Anal C*** Anal C*** was an American grindcore band founded by vocalist Seth Putnam in 1988 in Newton, Massachusetts. The band is known for their highly offensive lyrics which included themes of misogyny, homophobia, racism, Nazism, antisemitism, and schadenfreude (ridicule of the unfortunate). Their music has ...read more.

Elite name and elite band. You know they are intentionally bad. To the guy who rather would listen to Bieber, you are triggered easily.

Worst band ever! I'd rather listen to people like bieber a million times!

I honestly find this name funny. Put it on top!

This name's hilarious.

2 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch, often shortened to Five Finger or Death Punch, also abbreviated as 5FDP or FFDP, is an American Alternative Metal/Alternative Rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name comes from the kung fu movie The Five Fingers of Death.

Sounds like a weird cereal name

Hitting your mind after every word!

3 Funeral For a Friend

Have to agree with all band names on this list, but this is the funniest and most weird! Laugh out loud!

"Next time he borrows my girlfriend I will have! "

Definitely the funniest on here by far.

4 Carcass Carcass are a British extreme metal band from Liverpool, who formed in 1985 and disbanded in 1995. A reformation was enacted in 2007 without one of its original members, drummer Ken Owen, due to health reasons.

None of these names are funny at all.

"Yeah, got one out the back..."

5 Anal Blast

Funny story. I was at Mayhem Fest over the summer watching Jungle Rot, and an old man walked walked in front of me. He was wearing a sun hat and a shirt that read "Anal Blast" with a hilariously gross graphic

Ha! Just came to this list again for a giggle but now I'm laughing! Seriously...is there a rock or metal band with this name?! Haha

6 Oh S*** They’re Going to Kill Us

This is an actual name?

No, I was just that the guy who thought up of the name had been poisoned by the members of the band, and for his final message he warned the viewers of the bands devious deed. - DapperPickle

7 The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza

This one's pretty funny.

8 Pig Destroyer Pig Destroyer is an American grindcore band formed in 1997 in Alexandria, Virginia. The band was formed by vocalist J. R. Hayes, guitarist Scott Hull, and drummer John Evans, later replaced by Brian Harvey.

It sounds like a pig that ate explosives then blow up and then it rained bacon. They are trying to be idiotic

They destroy pigs!

9 iwrestledabearonce

How is this not at least in the top 3? I mean, Carcass, Anthrax, etc. Are funny, but for metal they're pretty standard. "Iwrestledabearonce" is funny for every genre of music, even in their silly humor-metalcore subgroup. And note that it's spelled all as one word.

Horrible grammar and you cannot survive if you wrestled a bear. You will die.

Correct spelling: I wrestled a bear once

@ThatStrangeKid42 - I agree with you (because I added them) and they are at #2 on my remix.

10 Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock band and, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio.

Trent stated the name has no literal meaning anyway.

It sounds more cool than funny.

Why they wanted to be called this, I will never know.

NINE INCH is the lenght of the NAILS that nailed Jesus to the cross.
More awesome than funny actually

The Newcomers

? Failed to Failure

The Contenders

11 Jesus Loves Anal

What is wrong with people?

... I have no words

Oh my word! Wha..? 0.0

yes

12 Suicidal Tendencies Suicidal Tendencies is an American crossover thrash band founded in 1980 in Venice, California by vocalist Mike Muir, who is the only remaining original member of the band. The band is often credited as one of "the fathers of crossover thrash".

"Only every bloody day, my friend! "

13 Dying Fetus Dying Fetus is an American death metal band originally from Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Formed in 1991, the group is known for their consistently hook-laden song structures, characterized by blast beats, complex riffing, slam riffs and heavy breakdowns.

Liberals see no problem with this band name

What!

Haha... that is sad... :/

14 Dead Brain Cells Dead Brain Cells are a Canadian thrash metal band from the late 1980s. Called DBC for short, the band started in 1985 in Montreal as a small project named Final Chapter by guitar players Eddie Shahini and Gerry Ouellette, who put an ad in a magazine looking for a drummer.

Thrash from Canada. Very good and serious band despite this name.

15 Balls

Yes! I love balls!

I am far too immature for this.

No footballs... why so dirty minded

16 Anthrax Anthrax is an American thrash metal band from New York City, formed in 1981 by guitarist Scott Ian and bassist Dan Lilker.

You go to the records shop and ask the shopkeeper-Do You Have Any Anthrax?

"I'm craving some Anthrax right now."

Hey, I wanna buy some Anthrax!

The cure for anthrax is slayer hur hur

17 Vodka Humor

Never heard of them, name is weird for a band.

18 Goatwhore Goatwhore is an American extreme metal band formed in 1997 in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States formed by former Acid Bath guitarist Sammy Duet. Goatwhore is known for their fast-paced fusion of black, death, and thrash metal.

A member of the band was drunk at a bar, stood up and called some woman a goatwhore. Thus, Goatwhore got its name. One of my favorite bands

Should be higher, and should definitely be above Suicidal Tendencies.

19 Blind Guardian Blind Guardian is a German power metal band formed in the mid-1980s in West Germany. They are often credited as one of the seminal and most influential bands in the power metal and speed metal subgenres. Heavily influenced by Queen, they use the technique of overdubbing.

Ha, one of my favorite metal bands. Never sounded funny to me because I know they are respected and great. They are a top-notch metal band with one of the greatest singers out there.

Cannabis Corpse songs are fully original but their album and song titles are parodies of many death metal bands' album and song titles (e.g. "Tube of the Resinated" vs ...read more.

I'd put this in the top 10. They are a Cannibal Corpse parody band. They take their song and album names and insert weed puns.

Songs: I C** Bud, I Will Smoke You, Skull Full of Bong Hits, Mummified in Bong Water.

21 We Butter the Bread With Butter We Butter the Bread with Butter is a German metalcore band from Lübben, noted for their heavy use of electronic music characteristics.
