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 Blast

Funny story. I was at Mayhem Fest over the summer watching Jungle Rot, and an old man 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

2 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.

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

3 The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza
4 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 blew up, and then it rained bacon. They are trying to be idiotic.

5 Oh S*** They’re Going to Kill Us
6 iwrestledabearonce Iwrestledabearonce (often stylized in all lowercase) was an American metalcore band formed in 2007 in Shreveport, Louisiana. In their nine years together, they released one EP, four full-length albums, and two remixed releases.

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.

7 Jesus Loves Anal
8 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.

9 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 metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name comes from the kung fu movie The Five Fingers of Death.

Hitting your mind after every word!

10 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.

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

The Contenders
11 Cannabis Corpse Cannabis Corpse is a marijuana-themed death metal band, formed in Virginia in 2006. Their band name is a parody of Cannibal Corpse. 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
12 Abörted Hitler C***
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.
14 Adolf Satan
15 Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock band, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio.

Trent stated the name has no literal meaning anyway.

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

It sounds more cool than funny.

16 Smelly Pedros
17 Vaginal Penetration of an Amelus with a Musty Carrot
18 Vodka Humor

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

19 Satan's Almighty Penis
20 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!"

21 Funeral For a Friend

Have to agree with all the 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 him!"

Definitely the funniest on here by far.

22 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.
23 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 record shop and ask the shopkeeper - Do you have any Anthrax?

24 We Butter the Bread With Butter We Butter the Bread with Butter (also known as WBTBWB) is a German metalcore band from Lübben. They are noted for their heavy use of electronic music characteristics. The group was founded in 2007 by guitarist Marcel Neumann and vocalist Tobias Schultka... read more
