The Loveless & Goodnight Trail. That's a band, not the sequel to Lonesome Dove.

I nominate a band called Brand New; awsome band, but fucking retarded name. Also a band called Vampire Moose, I mean, what the hell is that?!

I once saw a punk band called The Crap Shags, that's pretty bad. Although their song that went 'you make me wanna cream in my jeans' nearly outdid the name.

any bands with numbers in their name:

blink 182
sum 41
matchbox 20
311
U2
Eve 6
Stroke9

half of the time, half of those bands aren't half bad- but the worst one is this: New Found Glory. how corny can you get??

There's this poster at my radio station that has a bunch of dudes beating the bloody pulp out of a gigantic hamburger.
Their name is....ready for this?....

Bill Parker and His Motherscratchers!


Sublimely horrible. I love it! Audioslave, though... that's just fist-eatingly stupid.

That's actually a somewhat obscure reference to the movie Raising Arizona. There's a scene where Nic Cage is working a drill press in a mundane machine shop job, and his boss is rambling on about some pointless story amusing only to himself, when he mentions a guy named Bill.
Nic Cage: "Bill Parker?"
Guy: "No, not that motherscratcher, Bill Farmer!" (or whatever he said this particular Bill's last name was).

But yeah, even with all that, it's still a stupid name.

I think this is an amazing and long delayed name for a band.

Plastic Bag Good band. Shit name.

I bought this CD 8 yrs ago at a used store because the name was so horrible. The band was called Fishy Dick. About every 6 months I try and give it away to a friend as a gift, but it always ends up back in my bedroom somehow.

So, how come no one's given props to the great TV Show band names.

Jesse and the Rippers
The Zach Attack

and my personal favorite
Frozen Emryos or just The Embryos
