Yeah, just a little topic to see if we can gather some odd or amusing band names from around the world. Prompted by seeing a few around here lately. The ones I have handy are:

Sh-sh-sh-sh-Shark Attack!!!
The God Damn Doo Wop Band
You Ruined Christmas
Necro Tampon
Ham Sandwich

Anyone have any other names to add to the list?

Y'all should visit Mallory's every once in a while... it only hurts at first Wink

Many of these bands are actual bands, like Free Beer, Jif and the Choosy Moms, etc.

For years around here we had both the Funk Junkies and the Junk Monkeys.

I always thought Ace of Base was a stupid name for a bunch of Scandinavian chicks singing pop music.

But my favorite was a little band from PA called Rhymes With Orange.

I like the name, but I think it's funny: Panic! At the Disco.

I like how they have the (!) after Panic. I end up just calling them Panic!. And then I want to put a period after the ! because I don't want it to seem like I'm so excited about talking about them. Woop!

Better Than Ezra. They came up with their mane at a battle of the bands. The announcer asked who they were. They asked who was playing right now and the announcer said it was a band named Ezra. You can guess the rest Big Grin

Much as I love 'em, Def Leppard is a silly, silly name for a band.

10CC? WTF does that mean?

It's an amount of medicine, right? Take 10cc's of damnitol and call me in the morning; that sort of thing.

That explains why I want to OD every time I hear their music.

That punk from American Idol a couple of seasons ago (Constantine Murillo) had a band named "Pray for the soul of Betty."

Two expletive bands I've come across:

A$$ Ponies
F**king C**ks

And let's not forget the Cherry Poppin' Daddies, or Toad the Wet Sprocket

Impotent Seasnakes, a local act back in the '80's. Their bassist went by the name 'Buck Futt'.

....And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. It'd be cool if it wasn't so damned long.

Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains, Fatso Jetson. Great bands. Questionable names.

As i recall, 10CC was named for the average amount of a man's ejac*late. No kidding.
