I'm hard to please when it comes to band names. In the 90's the local scene here in the 'noke was rife with deplorable band names. Leftover wannabe crap from the 80's. Any band with the following words in their name is immediately dismissed in my book. Steel, Rose, Groove, Doctor, or 2 X's or 2 Z's. Again this ONLY my opinion which affects nothing. Please don't get your feelings hurt if you were/are in a band with these band name faux pass. If you are from one of these bands please don't shoot me. I mean c'mon I was in 2 different bands called Blind Minds and THE ACOUSTICS OF DOOOOM. List them as big time and small time like this.

Big Time:

Mike and the mechanics
Spin Doctors
Death Cab for Cutie
Creed
The Gin Blossums
Goo Goo Dolls
Stryper
Poison
Puff Daddy
Seven Mary Three
Jean loves Jezebel
Def Leppard
Better than Ezra

Small Time:

Desmond Steele
Steel Coyote
January Rose
Radar Rose
Groove Doctors
Leggz
Staxx
Blind Vision

Look for the increasingly popular thread... "Best band names!"

HAPSHASH AND THE COLOURED COAT FEATURING THE HUMAN HOST AND THE HEAVY METAL KIDS


I still have my vinyl copy of this 1967 peice of "forgotten rock history"!

It could be argued that if "Blue Cheer" invented Heavy Metal in "68",then the artists behind "Hapshash" coined the term a year before!

P.S. The "music" on this album makes "The Mars Volta" sound like a group of "well rehersed chiorboys "!

My own, Noisy Kung fu, jezz man Im sick of tryin to explain that one.
I didnt pick it it just seemed to stick to us.
I usually try to tell people that Kung Fu really has nothing to do with fighting in general It is Skill by patient accomplishment and hard work,
could be any thing from cooking to music. But I guess most Americans just watch too much TV.

... Noisy Kung Fu... That is um, one weird name you got there for your band.

I think the worst name I ever heard of was "Hot Hot Heat."

Peace out, GuitarAnatomy.

I was in "The Chef Eric Band" & no, he's not a chef.

Squirrel Nut Zippers

Toad the Wet Sprocket

Alice in Chains

The McCoys

Bill Haley & the Comets

& anything like "the Bob Smith Blues Band" turns me off...I don't like the glorification of any member over the rest in the name. ( I know Bob, & he's an alright guy, but I hate the name!)

looks like a lot of you folks are stateside, so I'll probably get flamed for this:

I used to be in a band called Seven Dead Astronauts. c1986-1990.

in Yorkshire dialect, "It were nowt to do wi me", they already had the name when I joined
