Most annoying band names. Ever.

I may be forgetting some, but the following band names are so bad that Panic! At the Disco suddenly seems like the title of a buried Hitchcock picture.

1. Anal C*** - Nothing needs to be said really. Their music is just as bad though. Really.
2. Pissed Jeans - I’m not sure if I’ve ever heard these guys’ music or if I ever will because I’ll never get passed their horrid name.
3. Shit Disco - When I was young I thought this was the only kind of disco. Band name still sucks, though.
4. Test Icicles - Oh, you guys are so clever. Clever like the writers of Balls of Fury. “Get this guys; we’ll call our selves testicles, but not really, but when everyone first sees our name on a poster, they’ll think it’s about testicles. How’s that for getting noticed?” What, were these guys 12 when they named their band… or just stinking plastered?
5. Gay Against You - That doesn’t make sense even.
6. The Number 12 Looks Like You - That’s… honestly, I don’t know what.
7. Hoobastank - Wow, you guys sure dodged a bullet by changing your name from Hoobustank to Hoobastank. Psyche! Isn’t it pronounced the same anyways? Well, your They Sure Don't Make Basketball Shorts Like They Used To album was good, at least. It went downhill with each subsequent release after.
8. Cut Off Your Hands - Yeah, screw slitting wrists. Just cut the whole bloody appendage off!
9. Pants Yell! - They do what now? I’ve only heard one song from this band, and it was surprisingly very good, but that name… uggh… but I spared them by putting them low because of that one song.
10. !!! - Also known as Chk Chk Chk, This band are actually alright, but how pretentious is this? Seems stupid for marketing. How do you market a triple exclamation point that’s actually pronounced as the sounds kids make when they are emulating machine guns with their mouths?

If anyone is reading this, feel free to supply more terrible band names. And for the record, I started listening to …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead simply based on their band name; it was that intriguing, so I always wonder why it makes it on so many people’s lists of the same nature as mine above. Sure, it’s pretentious, but so is their music, and with boring post-Creed rock (I guess I could call it post-post-grunge) like Fray, Papa Roach, Alter Bridge and State of Shock on the radio waves, what’s wrong with being ostentatious?

Here's a free update to my list
The The [thanks to Stelaris]
Does It Offend You, Yeah? [... yes, it DOES. Thanks to ginnyoh for reminding me of how much 'it' offends me. It being a crap band making crap music and remixes. Nothing worse than that, folks!]
Xiu Xiu [thanks to Stelaris, forgot about these guys]
Demented Are Go! [I'll say!]
Natalie Portman's Shaved Head [I'd like to thank myself for this one - Thanks!]

    Ah, yes I forgot The The and some number bands! I like GY!BE, though, the name sounds as doom and gloom as their pretentious music, which I am a big fan of... How do you pronounce Xiu Xiu, anyways?

    I'll always remember that group for ruining one of my favourite Muse songs. Oh, and Natalie Portman's Shaved Head. Okay, I've never heard them, but aren't we all a little too obsessed with celebrity culture already? Well, I'm not, or at least try not to be, but that electronic outfit could've waited two years and called themselves Britney Spears' Shaved Head or Britney Spears' Non-Existent Underpants. Or Britney Spears' Kids' Unfortunate Driving Violat-- uhh... well, you get the point
