fusillade762: There were acts named for places (Boston, Chicago, Asia)I still maintain that any band named after a place sucks. See also: Europe, Alabama, Kansas, etc.
BonesJackson: But we all know the worst name in the history of ever: Toad the Wet Sprocket. Don't even argue. Doesn't get worse than that.
spiralscratch: BonesJackson: But we all know the worst name in the history of ever: Toad the Wet Sprocket. Don't even argue. Doesn't get worse than that.It's a Monty Python reference, so it gets a pass. And there's far worse.
OtherBrotherDarryl: The New Originals
MagSeven: Vampire Weekend and Arcade Fire aren't more ridiculous names than Talking Heads. And I appreciate VW and AF for getting me back into Talking Heads who are farking awesome. I just rediscovered them as I was abroad and born in 1981 so I would have been around 9 or 10 when they broke up,listeng to early Weird Al... VW's latest album is really good. Arcade Fire's sort of insists upon itself....Talking Heads are still kind of timeless.
fearmongert: I also liked the band name Atari TeenageRiot
MaudlinMutantMollusk: /and then to lose an elbow//tragic
fusillade762: The trend I've noticed recently are bands named "*Blank* the *Blank*". Portugal the Man, Young the Giant, Cage the Elephant, Foster the People, etc.
QU!RK1019: List is fail without Stevie Ray Vaughn?
croesius: Back in the 90's in Nashville, there was Brown Towel. Always stuck with me as an awful band name./csb
