22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

1. Nirvana

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

How could such a brilliant band bear a name that might as well have been given to them by the worst guy in your freshman dorm? How, I ask you??

2. Modest Mouse

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

Get all that cringe-inducing self-effacing shyness out of my perfectly sparse guitar music! Jeez.

3. Foxygen

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

Things that are “foxy” are the mysterious kind of sexy, and it’s hard to find anything less exotic than oxygen. While their music might be plenty alluring, their name is not.

4. Boyz II Men

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

A “Z” as a pluralizer AND a Roman numeral really elevate this band name, which is ALREADY a reference to puberty, to legendarily horrific status. Even the majesty of Boyz II Men’s linen suit game can’t distract from this most dubious of names.

5. Radiohead

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

Talking Heads reference or no, there’s no denying the corniness of basically proclaiming yourselves audiophiles. A good rule for bands is not to directly reference music in your name — it’s redundant, you know?

6. Butthole Surfers

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

You have to give the band some credit: The announcer of their first paid show forgot their name and used the title of their song, “Butthole Surfers.” It stuck, and though it’s pretty terrible, it’s also pretty hilarious — and totally fits their personality.

7. Death Cab for Cutie

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

I feel like if they had just cut it off at “Death Cab,” it would be a little less terrible…actually, no, still the worst. The “cutie” just adds schmaltzy insult to injury.

8. Majical Cloudz

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

Self-explanatory. Given the beauty of this band, there’s probably some romantic reason for it, but the truth stands that calling yourself this is just sort of silly.

9. U2

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

This is how you feel when you think about the fact that one of the most vocal and powerful political bands of the past half-century has this for a name (and a guy named The Edge for a guitarist, for that matter).

10. !!!

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

WHAT ARE YOU EVEN DOING WITH THAT. Also, this band wants you to pronounce their punctuation-based non-name “chk chk chk,” which, absolutely not — you should have, I don’t know, spelled it that way if that’s really what you wanted, guys.

11. Cap’n Jazz

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

You are not the CAPTAINS OF JAZZ, Kinsella brothers. You are two math rock guys, and while you’re great at what you do, this name has nothing to do with that.

12. Diarrhea Planet

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

While the name “Diarrhea Planet” might conjure up some unpleasant images, it does give you a sense of the poop-joke Blink-182 breed of pop-punk comedy present in their music, which is maybe the only semi-positive thing you can say about a name like this.

13. The Smashing Pumpkins

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

Great, you named your band after the surest way to ruin a child’s Halloween. Also, who wants to be associated with a pumpkin, of all things? (Well, Billy Corgan, I guess, but probably no one else on Earth.)

14. The Beatles

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

“Like BUGS, but also like the MUSIC that we MAKE. Get it???” Best band, worst name.

15. Pissed Jeans

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

The three instances when someone urinates in their clothes are the following: A) He or she is, like, 3. B) He or she is frightened. C) He or she is drunk and can’t make it to the bathroom. Totally outrageous and totally befitting this balls-out grunge band.

16. Archers of Loaf

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

Anything with the word “loaf” in it is an automatic NO THANKS.

17. Everything But the Girl

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

This duo named themselves after a furniture store with a sign that read, “For your bedroom needs, we sell everything but the girl.” URGH, right? Fingers crossed they’re sending some kind of political message, at least.

18. Soundgarden

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

The sentiment that your band is like a bountiful GARDEN of SOUND is eminently mockable on every level.

19. Tears for Fears

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

One (1) nonsensical rhyme plus one (1) attempt to sound ~deep~ and ~sensitive~ = a truly terrible band name, even if they DID write about 2,419 great songs (they did).

20. LCD Soundsystem

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

OK, so maybe this band really WAS a system that pumped out the SOUNDZ, but given all their talent, they could have done better than something so self-evident.

21. Letters to Cleo

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

The name is a reference to the lead vocalist’s childhood pen pal, which gives it about one thousand “awwww” points, but doesn’t do very much in the way of “cool.” They make up for it with their amazing brand of alt-rock, and their music makes appearances in Sabrina the Teenage Witch and The Craft.

22. Savatage

22 Great Bands With Godawful Names

Actually, this might be kind of the best band name of all time. Nevermind, Savatage, you win this round.
