I hate No Use For A Name. Trying to make your name a joke isn't humorous kids.

I liked a band named "Furniture" in the 80s, but thought they had a thoroughly uninspiring name.

Of other bands you only realise how silly their names sound when you think about it, and when they are household names enough, you dont, really, ever. But think about it. Culture Club? The Human League?

Oh, now that I'm remembering those horrid days of 80s chart hits ... what about Bananarama? A-ha? Modern Talking? Fun Boy Three?

another one from the 80s ... what was that guy called? he started two bands, even, and they had equally pathetic names, though i must admit they fitted the dude and the music: first "theatre of hate", then "spear of destiny". but then all of those (proto)goth bands had/have ridiculous names.

oh and what about those girl hop hoppers ... "the cookie crew"

A band name is an interesting part of a band. Sometimes it says a lot about the band. You actually know sometimes by a bands name what type of music they are. I don't go out and buy cd's because of a bnds name, but I do thing it is part of their "image".

That is my statement for this thread, now for my theory of a few bad band names.

Foo Fighters
Alien Ant Farm

Perhaps a "trick pony" is the pony that a trick rider (you, know the guy who stands on his hands and flips around his horse...) rides? and since Trick Pony is a country band...well, hmm...

I read somewhere that in the f-word is used 182 times in some movie...thus blink-182. Don't think that fact (?) takes it off the stupid list, though.

Actually thats untrue and is just a rumor. Their original name was blink but they had to change it because of legal issues. They added 182 because it sounded good or somehting like that. I saw it on an interview w/ them once.

Something the matter with Hootie and the Blowfish? Can you believe there used to be a group called the Beatles? I kid you not.


The name was a play on the word "beatnik".

They were once calle dthe Quarrymen, & also the Silver Beatles. I have a Silver Beatles 45 ("3 Cool Cats" and "Memphis"), in fact. Smile

The worst are these adult contemporary piece of crap bands with super trite names like "Dashboard Confessional."

One of my bandmates thought it would be funny to name our band "Lost and Profound."
