Wow - mind blown.

I gotta disagree with the writer on a few of those.  I think there are a lot of worse band names out there.

I'm even a fan of some of the bands I think have horrible names.

Who the hell cares, anyway?
 
2013-07-02 06:28:24 PM  
Ahhh good ole AC. Knew they'd make the list. Classiest band in show business.
 
2013-07-02 06:29:31 PM  
Mumford and Sons, Butthole Surfers, Squirrel Nut Zippers all are not good.  Toad the Wet Sprocket is good however.

!!! and Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band deserve slots on that list.

Dave Matthews Band? ABWH?  Maybe not great names, but I wouldn't say they're stupid.  And there are plenty worse.  Strawberry Alarm Clock?

/also, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. is a dumb name, but a good band and a really fun show if you get a chance to see them

Only the pedophile writing the story.

Most of the band names in the 60s were bad

Herman's Hermits
The Mamas and the Papas
The Cowsills
The Five Man Electrical Band

All terrible names
 
2013-07-02 06:38:26 PM  
the Grateful Dead pondered at least the following:

Mythical Ethical Icicle Tricycle

His Own Sweet Advocates



/and recorded a demo as "The Emergency Crew"
 
2013-07-02 06:39:02 PM  
He thinks of dad's molesting their daughters when they here Cherry Poppin' Daddies? I think Andy Greene has a few problems.

Never thought of that....now I will every time I hear that name. FARK YOU ROLLING STONE!
 
2013-07-02 06:39:37 PM  
If they put A/C in there as a joke gone wrong, then they need to put Rotting Christ on there, too.  It was one of those "album sales/black metal mystique" names that the band is somewhat dismayed with.

\pretty good band, too

waitwaitwait...do the Names suck, or do the Bands suck?  If the former,...okay maybe.  If the latter, U2 blows goats, 2 Live Crew, Front 242, the B-52's and Black 47 are all awesome.  (Some others not too bad.  .38 shortbus-Special not one of those others.)

Rainbow Butt Monkeys (now Finger Eleven).  The newer name isn't much better. As much as they claim it isn't a word for male genitalia, nobody believes them.

Dave Grohl would like to have a word with you about the "Foo Fighters".
 
2013-07-02 07:20:52 PM  
If he ever leaves, we could get the long-awaited reunion of Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe.

Well, except for the fact that Bruford retired from public performance four years ago.

But I guess if Anderson isn't suffering another relapse of his health problems, he could join Wakeman and Howe for some tour dates.  And Tony Levin is always up for whatever.
