The best and worst band names ever

Recommended Posts

Bad:

 

 

 

Engelbert Humperdinck (Humperbert Engeldinck? Dinkelbert Humpereng? Bertengel Dinckhumper? Berthumper Engeldinck?) I know it's not his real name, but why choose THAT as a stage name?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Limp Bizkit: Edible confectionary with an injury?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good:

 

 

 

Trivium, because it's got meaning behind it. From Wikipedia: In medieval universities, the trivium comprised the three subjects taught first: grammar, logic, and rhetoric. The "trivium" is the theory of education, or the beginning of liberal arts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Children of Bodom - Based around the Lake Bodom murders, they also have a song named "Lake Bodom"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pantera - Means "panther" in another language, can't remember which.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lamb of God - This obviously has some religious meaning. (I'm gonna make a tribute band named "Mutton of Messiah" :D.)

Some good ones:

 

 

 

The Ozark Mountain Daredevils - What mental image do you get? Hilarious.

 

 

 

Someone Still Loves You, Boris Yeltsin - Long, but amusing if you know who Boris Yeltsin is and why everyone hates him. Kind of a Russian inside joke, anyway.

 

 

 

Metacalypse - OK, not really a band, but it's still sweet.

 

 

 

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Awesome name, fitting for an awesome band.

 

 

 

Dark Horse - Maybe just because of George Harrison, but it's fitting for him.

 

 

 

Agent Orange - Never heard a song by them before, but they sound neat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bad ones:

 

 

 

Barenaked Ladies - Why would you name a band of men this?

 

 

 

They Might Be Giants

 

 

 

Def Leppard - I hate bands that do the "Ooh, let's take normal words and spell them completely wrong! We'll be cool then!" That's an automatic indicator that the band is going to suck.

heres some interesting ones:

 

...All (all what?)...

 

 

 

 

Clearly you know nothing about the quest for ALL...

 

 

 

anyways, Mindless Self Indulgence is a good one, same with The Toasters (toasting glasses, not the appliance) HORSE the band is great.

 

 

 

I hate trendy band names, especially ones beginning with prepositions. Also, bandnames are names, NOT phrases (another pet peeve)

Well Nightwish sounds very good, also Hammerfall, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Rammstein. And yeah Simon&Garfunkidljf -something is the the worst name ever. I was listening them a little long time ago and they are quite good but every time I hear their name :roll:. Also offspring sound stupid to me. I mean I like this band a lot but name is really :-X

I really dont like the bands with their name as simply "the " such as the killers, the zutons, the claxons, the frutellis (i mean wtf!), The Cure, the hives, the vines. I really like some of the music by them but the names piss me off lol..

 

 

 

Some of the more origional ones are ok like the beatles or the who before everyone started doin it.

 

 

 

There aren't really any band names that i really love - just ones that i dont like since im so pessimistic (is it that or pecimistic?) :P

Best = !!!

 

 

 

Worst = Panic! At the Disco (absurb. just like the fact that all those bands (such as Fall Out Boy and P!ATD) have names for their songs that are about 15 words long. that's stupid. and the name is dopey too. disoc? 30 years too late...)

I don't run races to see who's the fastest, I run to see who has the most guts. -Pre

Currently the best beat out there:

Minuit jacuzzi (DatA Remix) - TEPR

But anyway, good band names:

 

Preschool Teaparty Massacre

 

Make a Change... Kill Yourself

 

Impaled Northern Moonforest (haha)

 

Muse

 

Buckethead

 

 

 

Band names:

 

Yngwie Malmsteen

 

Blink 182 (who the hell puts numbers in their band name?)
