The Top Ten

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

Definitely the funniest on here by far.

This is an actual name? - RiverClanRocks

7 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 - ryanrimmel

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 - Britgirl

8 Pig Destroyer Pig Destroyer

10 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. - ThatStrangeKid42

Horrible grammar and you cannot survive if you wrestled a bear. You will die. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Correct spelling: I wrestled a bear once - Metal_Treasure

I hate this band
