Band names. Some can be amazing and incredibly catchy and memorable. Others, however, can make you do a second take and whisper, “What the hell?” These are names that also stick with you throughout your life but not because of the band’s music, oh no. Rather, it’s because the name is so awful or problematic that you shudder at the very thought of bringing up these names.
So, below I’ve come up with 10 band names that are simply terrible. Note that this has nothing to do with the quality of their music, but simply is a thought about their name. Check it out!
Let’s be honest with ourselves here and admit that this is a truly awful band name. Yes, I realize that Anal Cunt was meant to be offensive beyond belief (just look at some of their song titles for proof of this), but that doesn’t change the fact that this name is just terrible.
“Hey pal, I’m going to see The Band in concert. Wanna come?”
“Yeah, I heard that the first time. What’s their name?”
So on and so forth until someone gets shot. The end.
I’ve actually heard people pronounce this as “Deadmau Five”. I was then forced to hide some bodies. Coincidence? Hmmm…..
Pain Of Salvation
Look, I love this band. I listen to them constantly. But DAMN is this an emo sounding name.
“You don’t know the pain of salvation until you’ve been at the very bottom that life can offer.” – Some kid with swooping bangs, black fingernail polish, eyeliner, and jeans that are cutting off circulation from their thighs down.
I’m very excited to hear this band and their debut album. But that doesn’t change the fact that this name is utterly ridiculous.
Also, somewhat relevant.
What the hell does this even mean? First of all, you misspelled “Biscuit”. Second, no one wants a limp biscuit. They should be firm yet flaky, preferably with a pad of butter on top or some gravy nearby. Stop ruining a delicious breakfast staple.
Whenever someone says, “I’m listening to The Who,” all I can think is that they sound like a damn owl. Hoot hoot, have a tootsie pop and shut up already.
“We’re so intense and badass that we took the idea of “Fear”, commercialized it, and are mass producing it in our factory. Oh, and we DON’T offer health benefits to our employees. Bam.”
Toad The Wet Sprocket
Taking your name from a Monty Python sketch doesn’t make it a good band name. Quite the opposite as a matter of fact.
I hate you.
