indiequeen, someone once told me that i danced like the lead singer of ned's atomic dustbin - not entirely convinced that this was a compliment !!

Well thought LilSpikey!

And I admit that the band "Puddle of Mudd" is weird too! [Big Grin] Except that they write "mud" with two "d".

Thank you. If individual singers count, then Papa Roach is one. (Like who would want to be named after a disgusting bug like that?)

I know i'm late on this, but I just found it so i'm posting my two-cents worth...aside from some mentioned already, the one that cracks me up is Chumbawumba. I love their song "Tubthumpin" which is equally weird if you ask me.

I know I'm gonna get this wrong, but there is a band called something like "The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club". They are quite good, too!

Several years ago, there was a local band who played weddings, parties, bars, etc, who couldn't come up with a name for their band before their first performance. As it was time to announce them, they admitted they didn't have a name, so the man introducing them announced them as "The No Name Band", somewhat as a joke. That is the name they used from then on, because they liked the sound of it.

The B52's, although not a real stupid name, got their name from the British welfare form they had to fill out for their $ handout. That's pretty stupid.

I feel better about Toad The Wet Sprocket getting their name from Monty Python (thanks whoever posted that). Stupid name but they are a very talented band..

here's my stupid band name list -

The artist formely known as Prince.. The symbol. What planet is he from? Someone help me here.
Killing Heidi - Please...
The Patented Iguanas - I didn't make that up!
Banzai Potato - nor that
The Front Porch Squadron - too much time on their hands..

I think they all should leave the comedy to Monty Python

It's funny, but almost every band people named here I own at least one if not all of their recordings..
Now for the oddest and longest band name i know..

I love this band though!

P.S. Here are a few others

Mission of Burma
Birdsongs of the Mesozoic
Swell Maps
Eyeless in Gaza
This Mortal Coil
The Teardrop Explodes
Naked Raygun
Stiff Little Fingers

Not so much weird as funny. I have recently run across a great band called The All American Rejects. I just love that name. I've always thought The Flaming Lips was a pretty funny name too.

Actually Bertho, that was UB40 who took their name from the unemployment form.
One from the early 80's that always gave me a laugh was the 'Furious Turtles'. It conjures up this really funny mental picture!

We have a local band around here called Monkey and the Spank Daddies. Sadly, they're pretty good. Monkey is the son of Travis Womack, of Travis Womack and the Swampers, another local Muscle Shoals (Alabama) band.

We have another pretty good band named Cosmic Momma. The lead singer ismuch like Janis Joplin, and the band owes a lot to Big Brother and the Holding Company.

I'll start with Backstreet Boys, I don't want to even think how that name came about!
Then there's Puff Daddy now called P Diddy, all I have to say is WHAT!!??

Others include:

Hootie and the Blowfish
2 Skinnee J's
Del the Funky Homosapien
Jimmie's Chicken Shack
The International Noise Conspiracy
And finally, I don't know what these guys had on their minds at the time of thinking this up - Dismemberment Plan.
