Weird Band Names

Yesterday, while surfing my life away, I came across The Canonical List of Weird Band Names, which lists, well, the weirdest band names. My dad always marveled at the names of bands I listened to (INXS, 10,000 Maniacs), but they’re like vanilla compared to these names. (Caution: Many of the band names on the site are R-rated.)

Some of the names are really clever puns, and some of them are so bizarre I had to add them to the list as well. My favorites:

  • Above Average Weight Band
  • Abracadaver
  • A Cat Born In An Oven Isn’t a Cake
  • Afghanistan Banana Stand

  2. You forgot the “Squirrel Nut Zippers”. And “Pancakes and Poltergeists”. But these are really funny!
