I came across a band today called We Butter The Bread With Butter.

Just curious what you guys think some of the worst band names out there are (even good bands have horribly bad names sometimes)...

Edit: I forgot about You Me At Six and Starring Janet Leigh. I'm sure there's more I'll remember later.

I wrestled a bear once. I'm not going to type it all stupid like they do. Dumb fucking name for an ass fucking band. I'm ashamed to say they're from my state.

Anal Cunt. I mean, we all know this one. But really, there are no two words that go together to create something quite as offensive as Anal Cunt.

Anal Blast is a pretty bad one too. I know the vocalist or whatever died and all...but it's still true.

^^^ Lol SHREDDER! I think we should make a graph, in particular to show that the increase in band name length is directly proportional to how lame a band will be in this age.

Awwww c'mon Shredder, ETID is pretty neat.

Hanjob, I like Death Cab a lot but I will admit their name is pretty lame.

I always hated Limp Bizkit (yes, the name as well), but As I Lay Dying, Between the buried and me, and especially Anal Vomit are all pretty horrible

Cynic: Anal Cunt is a brilliant name for a band. Once you hear it; you'll never forget it.

Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

well Anal Cunt will definitely get attention... but lets face it, its a horrible name.
Something like Marilyn Manson is pure genius

Heh I like BTBAM. It's metaphysical. How about: I Set My Friends On Fire, HORSE the band (even though I like them), and Owl City. DO NOT look up Owl City. It's vomit inducing.

As great as some of them are, any band whose name should start with a C and is instead spelled with a K just annoys me. I love Kreator, though. Also, Cradle of Filth have a terrible name.

Cynic - Right? It seems like these days bands are just combining a bunch of random/insignificant words to form a "cool" abbreviation. Fucking lame if you ask me! Plus, their music sucks!

Natsquatch - I have nothing against the band personally. It's just that their name makes no sense. Every Time I Die? Oh yeah, I hate when that happens.

Oz - Nice list. Forgot to mention some of those in my graph.

The Beatles. Sure, they could very well be the best band to have ever existed in music history. But that's not up for discussion this time around, the name is. It's a shitty pun, let's face it.

Oh and Hot Buttered Anal. And they aren't that great for my musical tastes either. Something about their music just pissed me off.

Oct 29, 2009 8:37 PM ET #23 (permalink)

Wait, wait, wait... The Beatles is a -PUN-?!!! hahah :P

Isn't there a band called 'Butthole Surfers' or some shit?? Here's my philosophy: don't name your band after gaydom or penis. Taintstick, for example. SHIT. FUCKING. NAME.
