That was my first thought as well. Even worse today in the "must be googleable" category.

I swear they're just trolls, trying to get random people to tell them that "piscine" is french for swimming pool.

Spotted punk band The C**ts in a festival flyer last year. Probably not the best name if you want to make it in the music business (which they probably don't).

Most of these are pretty inventive I think.

Ou Est Le Swimming Pool had a great song with 'Dance the Way I Feel'. Shame their lead singer committed suicide.

That's the point as it represents a keyboard shortcut. I'm not that keen on it but I suppose it's somewhat inventive.

The worst band names for me are the completely uninspired, mundane ones like "The Music" or "Girls".

I remember reading something about a band called "Free Hot Lunch"... a bunch of senior citizens were misled by the marquee.

If we can open it up to individuals then I will go for rappers. Pick one at random.

Decent band but awful name.
Named after a (rather great) song by The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. I think they might qualify for this thread too!

Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine also, especially if you've ever seen photos of them. *shudders*

I actually like most of the names mentioned so far on the thread. Yes, some of them may be a little daft but they do show great imagination.

The ones I don't particularly like tend to be unimaginative (imo) single word seventies band names, such as:-

Bread
Dawn
Kenny
Mud
Pilot
Queen
Sailor
Slade
Slik
Smokie
Sweet

People think QUEEN was a bad band name?


Seriously, check yourselves.

One Erection is quite a bad name too. I wonder who came up with it (Simon).

On the subject of some more bad band names: Mumford & Sons takes the cake. Also it must have taken some creative prowess to come up with Girls Aloud.

On the whole I think bands actually make up really good names. Some of them can be a bit odd like Mamas and Papas, Lawson and Take That but they're not really bad (in fact they work) but they're just a bit odd.
