Battle of the Band Names

There is always so much competition in the music industry (same thing goes for artists, actors, fashion designers, etc.), but if a band has a great name I'll give them a listen.

Yeah know what tho...because the names are soo whacked out, you'll remember them. Hillbilly prophet!! HAHA! Aww. But seriously, people shouldn't let their drunk friends pick their band name...I don't wanna know how the name, "filthy nuns" came about!! =)

uglygirl said...

There are so many weird band names out there...then we get used to them as the bands become popular. I would like to name a band using the word "Placenta" in there somewhere. If you google my blog name, it comes up with a death metal band called Cerebral Incubation, who have a song called Asphyxiating on Excrement. I've listened to it on Youtube. It's pretty funny.

"mijo goes to jr. college"?! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!! i'm dying over that. HILARIOUS! and han cholo?! chehehehehe!!!

The Zhush said...

This round up of amusing band names was so fun...imagine being a fly on the wall during the meetings that decided upon all these names, to hear what was rejected...hilarious!

SabinePsynopsis said...

And what's the verdict on Whiskey Dick, Holy Fuck, Dead Panda, The Filthy Nuns and Co.? Oh, I just loved writing all these names, just imagine how great it must be to go on stage and shout: HI, WE ARE THE WHISKEY DICKS!!!

Mrsblogalot said...

LOFL!!!! I would buy a ticket to every one of these !

♥Aubrey said...

It's ALL in the name!!!
Can you imagine some of these being chanted/screamed though? Ha ha :)-

Lorena said...

Han Cholo ?!
I cannot, cannot stop laughing.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Lady Ren said...

holy fu*k those are some funny names.
Whiskey Dick- I like saying that.

tulpen said...

So hard to choose a favorite...

toss up between Holy Fuck and Chum.

Good stuff.

thanks for the chuckles as always!

Christina In Wonderland said...

I would probably listen to all of those, just out of pure curiosity. And because I'm totally one sick fuck. :) It's an endearing quality I think...

Dancing Branflake said...

It cracks me up because even though the names sounds so random, you know that every one in that band thought long and hard about that name.

And can I just say that you are the funniest commenter ever? I'm always laughing when reading your comments. Clever gal you are!

...love Maegan said...

whuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut?!??!?

I like Holy Fuck. ...but I think they should change it to THE Holy Fuck. lol

Kris said...

hahaha, these are fantastic! To this day I still think the best abnd name is the "fictional" (I guess) Crucial Taunt from Wayne's World. AWESOME!

Katy Mary said...

Wow, these band names are totally out there lol but very memorable too!

Alicia said...

ha!!! mijo goes to jr college!! i love it!! and seriously...whats with the bear snot.

Tia said...

I'm digging "Iwrestledabearonce" Though I agree with Alicia, the snots a little much!!

Kitty Stampede said...

The snot is what caught my attention!!! hahaha...I love that cover, it's rad and the title of the band is awesome too. I am so checking them out. As most of these. I love original band names, I think of them all the time...dammit, of course i can't remember any when i would love to..hahaha...wicked post!!!
hope your weekend has been slammin'!

Jill said...

There is a club in El Paso called Liquor Dick...seems like an oxymoron to me.

Haute World said...

When I was younger, I actually used to randomly buy records from bands with the best names. There was a lot of junk among that, but you do find some good stuff. Gotta love Filthy Nuns ;-)

Claire Kiefer said...

Yeah, Mijo goes to Jr. college is pretty much the funniest thing I've ever heard. And as for Dead like Dahmer . . . I can't decide if it's amusing or incredibly disturbing!

Phoenix said...

Wow...just wow.

Most of these I would have guessed are Rockband names made up by 14 year boys. Not ACTUAL band names.

That being said, I'm sure most of these people looked at The Goo Goo Dolls and were like, "Hey, if THOSE guys could make it..."

Kathryn said...

Although bizarre, they are memorable. A friend of mine used to to Street Team promotions for a group called "Spank The Monkey".

Iva said...

"IWRESTKEDABEARONCE"?

Mijo Goes to Jr. college?!?!? hahahhahahahha

omg. I'm leaning with 'holy fuck' LOL hilarious!!!

good thing none of them call themselves "I've a messy".

Christiejolu said...

LMAO at Han Cholo!

blueviolet said...

Now I'm wondering if any of them panned out to be worth that initial listen!

Asylum Dolly said...

Manic Hispanic gets my vote! That made me LOL :D
And Hans Cholo! hahahahaha!! And Whisky Dick!!!? Awesome.
I am also having a good laugh at uglygirls comment. "Asphysiating on excrement". There is no way I'll be missing out on hearing a song with a name like that!

I once dated a guy who was lead singer in a band called "running with scissors". I thought that was pretty cool :)
I love funny band and song names. Ever heard Mr.Bungle's song "My ass is on fire" ? methinks you would dig ;) (even if only because Patton is in it)

Kristin said...

OMG, Whiskey D*ck. Genius. AH ha ha

Caroline said...

Yep...gotta go with Whiskey Dick as my fave here!

Kass said...

Yep, the name's the thing. I've always thought google was hugely successful because of the name.

asweetcakes said...

Names are part of first impressions, and these definitely look interesting, like i could try them once. Holy fuck?? LOL!

bravegrrl said...

great post, gonna have to check out some of these :)

E said...

Aw, someone really needs to help these poor people with their terrible logos! Dead Panda is my favorite name :-)

frenchie said...

kinda like Whisky Dick...

couture designers said...

A name can make you or break you in the entertainment world. But as much as I like these, the names don't spell sold out world tour for me.

The Cottage Cheese said...

I love that first one (the album title puts it over the top). Ever heard "Dogs Die in Hot Cars?". Just the other day my husband said that Supertramp is the best band name ever. Not that he' some huge fan of the music, but you got to agree that name is awesome.

drawing tablets said...

Hahaha,some of them are really great! I love "I WRESTLED A BEAR ONCE". I need to write down these names because I also check out the bands with cool names.

Diana said...

hahaha at Manic Hispanic and their take on the Descendents!
