Mm, so Maxim has a list of the worst band names ever. It’s funny, in that college-boy-humor kind of way (Keith Urban, pictured: his name’s an oxymoron… ha, ha). OK, I laughed.


In their heroic attempt to be cute while riling people up, Maxim left out a few. Check out this more authoritative list (or the “canonical” list), as well as PopWatch’s own picks, below. Tell us if we’ve forgotten any of your favorites.

In no particular order:

Butthole Surfers
Flogging Molly
Cradle of Filth
An Emotional Fish
Cannibal Corpse
…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
Dem Franchize Boyz
Volcano, I’m Still Excited!!
Meat Loaf
The Plot to Blow Up The Eiffel Tower
Our Daughter’s Wedding
Il Divo
Jimmy Eat World
Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, and Howe
Bowling for Soup
Porno for Pyros
Strawberry Alarm Clock

And it just don’t stop…
