Almost any Swedish dansband:


Full of bullshit names like -
Gert Jonnys
Berth Idoffs
Matz Bladhs
Wizex
Flamingokvintetten
Lotta & Anders Engbergs Orkester
Schytts


Their album covers tend to be pretty cool, tho.

iwrestledabearonce manages to pull the double whammy of being the absolute nadir of 2000's hipster metalcore and having the most stereotypical band name of that scene.

Honestly even more popular/more recognizable musicians and bands can have stupid names. I mean... My Chemical Romance, Green Day, Maroon 5. Im sure these all have meanings but what the hell is a Green Day? What day of the week is that?

I actually like iwrestledabearonce (as a band name, not the music). It's memorable, it grabs your attention, and it tells you exactly what kind of bullshit you're about to subject yourself to.

Apparently it's San Francisco slang for spending the whole day doing nothing except sitting around, smoking weed. So in Green Day's case, every day of the week?

MCR's name is pretty straightforward, and Maroon 5, I dunno. According to the internet, the meaning of Maroon 5 is some kind of super-duper secret known only to Billy Joel, but they're such a boring shit band that I don't feel like digging around further.

Badflower. And yes they suck. Terrible lyrics by a whiny sounding guy with a faggy punchable face.

The story on 90s MTV was that a principal/teacher told them it would be a green day in Hell before they made anything of themselves. Who knows which is correct. Maybe both. It's Green Day after all.

Many years ago when I was at university, I spotted a sticker for a band named Bumsnogger. I never did check the music out (although I can't imagine they ever set the world alight) but the name has always stayed with me.

The Family Cat might have enjoyed a less truncated career, and perhaps even a dalliance with the upper end of the top forty, had they not hidden their melodic, three-pronged guitar attack behind such an absurd and ill-suited name. I encountered them by accident on the second stage at the Reading Festival. Paul Westerberg (formerly of The Replacements) was supposed to be on, but wasn't. The band who took to the stage in his absence were really good, with a decent repertoire of songs that hooked you on the first listen. I don't think they ever quite manged to capture the energy of their live performances on record, but it was the name that did them in. A lot of people would have seen it and passed them off as a joke band without ever hearing their music. If their manager or someone from their record company had sat them down and had a talk with them early on, things might have been different.
