I dunno, They Might Be Giants qualifies, and I think that's a decent enough band name. It really depends on the sentence.
They Might Be Giants is an exception. I guess Swallow the Sun counts too. that one's fine.

Toad The Wet Sprocket. Great band. Stupid name. I believe it is something from a Monty Python sketch. But they could have picked a less stupid sounding reference that had less words in it. I hate it when band names are a mouthful.

Tales From the Porn. Yeah, I was like "what?" THE porn or just porn in general? I mean the name totally fits the 80s sleazerock vibe and I like Stevie Rachelle. But the name is just lulz to me.

Also, this video was made for fapping. If I had a dick it would be raw.

I disagree with Wolf Parade, which is a fine name, and maybe Lizzy Borden. The worst you can say about it is that if you don't know the history behind the name you'll expect a female solo act. Gay Dad, Rapeman, and The Hooters made me LOL, so points for that.

Mustard Plug and Dave Matthews Band are both pretty bad IMO. Mustard Plug makes no sense and sounds awkward, and Dave Matthews Band is just an incredibly boring name.

Dave Matthews Band is as generic of a band name as you can get. It sounds like something a music executive came up with. Mustard Slug, as you said, makes absolutely zero sense.

I'm just touching the tip of the iceberg, though. You can find more atrocities in the following links:

I saw an interview a long as time ago (over 20 years) where Johnny Rzeznik said he hated the name but it was too late to change it. They just didn't think that much about it early on.

I think this interview was after Iris. They were now officially mom rock so changing the name was nigh impossible.

Stryper is Christian hair metal band with a lolcow lead guitarist whose wife runs an organization called Hookers For Jesus. :lol:

Their old shtick was dressing like this:

I guess when mom won't let you buy the Motley Crue album with the pentagram on it this doesn't look too bad. At least it's the same genre all your heathen friends are into.

The movie Faster Pussycat got their name from is also stupid. As the title is Faster, Pussycat! Kill Kill!

And if you have to know the plot, it's a 60s flick about killer go go dancers.

And speaking of stripey things... Sleeze Beez. Seriously?

"BTS" literally means "bulletproof boy-scouts" lmao

Andrew Jackson Jihad. The name is dumb enough but the fact that they pussied out and changed it to just "AJJ" because some leftists got butthurt about it just makes it more pathetic.

such potential, wasted smh

Better than Ezra. I think I heard the story of how they got their name but I forgot.

A really good place to see weird band names was MTV's 120 Minutes. Alternative Nation had some doozies too.

Dada
Marcy Playground
The Soup Dragons
Mutha's Day Out
Hole

Yeah, I realise somebody somewhere had to eventually call their band Hole. But when your singer, the lovely Courtney Love, has all of the charm and beauty of a used up crack whore the name just feels like a joke that wrote itself. :lol:

What is it with Asian bands and having retarded names? Andrew Jackson Jihad changing their name is especially pathetic due to their early work having lyrics that include shit South Park probably wouldn't even do.
Would also add Melvins even though I love their music, it's a pretty dumb name.

well it translates to the romanization of "bullet proof boyscouts" in korean, but still quite stupid
Why not just call themselves Bulletproof Boyscouts instead of messing around with romanizations of Korean kanji (or whatever the hell Korean symbols are called) acronym shit?
