Weirdest band names

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by BigWig Will, Jan 11, 2003.

  1. I was in a band called "Translucent Balzac" (say it aloud).

    My brother was in one called "Farmer not be John" (whatever the hell that means)

    Am I the only one, or do you other guys have these kinds of experiences?

    My friend's band finally agreed on a name after months and months of arguing.

    The Super Nasty Bukkake Band

    My ska band is Your Mom.

    "Hey, your mom is doing a live show in Ryan's basement tomorrow night", etc.

    My rock, hardcore, metal band is considering the name Donkey Punch.
  7. I don't know if anyone remember Orchestral Manouvers in the Dark, a.k.a OMD, but their originial band name was "Hitler's Underpants".
  8. my current band is called It Was Just for You, That Light Show. we're an indie-rock-ish type band, and that's a pretty indie-rockish type band name, so it works. either way, i love our name. anyone interested: www.yourlightshow.rocks.it

    when i was in junior high and first year of high school, i was in a band called Better than Sex. we were young so we liked the shock value. i know realize that it was the stupidest, worst, most lame band name in the whole world.

    I was once in a band called the Barking Spiders. We also considered the name Clothing Optional. :D

    I recall a punk band in Windsor called Johnny and the Fast ****s... later changed their name to Bush Pilot.

    I have a mix tape with 1 song from a band named:

    when people were younger and lived near the water
  11. One of my bands is called Peanut Butter Mosquitos, although we're considering changing it to just PBM because we all kinda hate the name now.

    tuba bass boy, I suggest you don't name your band Donkey Punch; there are already three on mp3.com. The most established (and the one I'm familiar with) is a rock/ska band from Ann Arbor, and they are among the most popular (and best, IMO) bands in the city. They've been around for a while, and have a couple CDs out. Click
  12. Let's see if I can remember some of the wierder ones.....

    My third exwife
    Ignorant knowledge
    mental floss
    boo hoo hoo
    bow wow wow
    Gringo Starr
    My momma's boyfriend
    My baby's mother

    I could go on and on if I could remember them all.
  13. My old drummer was great with band names. First we were Nina Hagen Dazs but noone could ever figure out how to spell it properly. Every poster or listing for our band was different. A few years later we became the Ethyl Mormons and eventually just Spazmz.
    Some other good ones from Toronto punk:
    Armed and Hammered
    2-Pump Louie
    Hockey Teeth
    and of course B.F.G - the Buncho****ingoofs
