Separate names with a comma.

It wasn't a real band, just imaginary but "Necrotic Scrotum" would have been awesome.
One of my all time favorite band names.
One that still annoys me: Toad the Wet Sprocket. Equally annoying to the name was people asking if I knew it was from a Python sketch (1000x YES!), then quoting Python ad nauseum.
In a similar vein [cough], there used to be an LI band called 'Stiff Richard.'
Thanks for posting Fanny.
They are so soulful, and had a great sense of time.
When I was in high school I got recruited by a bunch of middle-aged guys to play in their band. The band was called Hot Flash.
Ignorant me didn't know what it meant when I joined, but every time I mentioned the name to an adult thereafter they explained it to me.
Later, in high school a couple of handfuls of us up and coming musicians formed a dizzying array of jam bands or jam arrangements. I could start naming off a lot of those names but they'd mostly get turned to asterisks by the profanity filter.
A few of my favourites (that incidentally, I came up with):
Strutsie Leafspring and the Mortal Coil
Jose Cuervo and the Lo Sientos
3 Minutes Hate (which got used by another band later)
Maybe I'm not the best judge as I'm a bit of a connoisseur of weird band names that many people might declare are unfortunate. To me unfortunate implies that the name has a meaning that the band didn't realize or intend it to have. Frumpy doesn't seem unfortunate to me by that standard....I actually kinda like it....lol.
Bob's yer Uncle ...
D.O.A. starring Joey Sh*thead on guitar
I did sound for them in early 80's with U-J3rk5
also Dayglo Abortions
I worked with these guys as well
Prefab Sprout was inspired..
I stumbled across a band on Pandora years ago called "Pinky Tuscadero's White Knuckle @$$ F#%k" but with letters not characters. I kinda liked them and even bought an album.
Latex Novelties. Punk band in 80s Indianapolis, IN. Couldn't decide if they were punk or new wave.
I can’t believe AC/DC hasn’t been mentioned in this thread yet. I mean, they made the name iconic, but early on didn’t a lot of people mistakenly think they were a homosexual band?
...and who could forget this classic trio?
I was up in Boston one time back in the late 80s, and a band named, “Iron Sausage” was opening for the Butthole Surfers. There was an ad for the show on the radio.
I just heard this on the local jazz station last night and was really digging the performance and the recording in general. I missed the name announcement so I looked up the current playlist online and was amused to see a jazz combo calling itself “Naked Rock Fight!”
If you have a taste for this kind of thing, listen through and check out those drums! That mix!
