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:
