Worst band name you've ever heard?

I am putting together a musical combo and we've tossed around some names. Until we decide, those will remain anonymous. Many of them are downright awful, in a myriad of ways.

As Spinal Tap taught us all, "There is a fine line between stupid and clever." That line can be even finer with regard to band names.

So I put it to you DU, please share:

What is the worst band name of which you've heard?

My two cents is from a flyer I was handed circa 2000 in NYC. Barnrey Rubble & The Cunt Stubble. Four Groovy Dudes is a close second, but for vastly different reasons.

That was the punchline of a barbershop quartet joke I heard years ago.

10. Yeah, back in the 80s or 90s (it's all kind of a blur) I thought it was fall down funny.

Now it's just the absurdity of it that makes me grin.

19. GRAPHIC WARNING: Not Safe For Anything

I used have an ad for a band named Pig Vomit on my wall. When asked why, I would reply, "Because I figured that if I ever told anyone that I'd heard of a band named Pig Vomit, they'd never believe me!"

Anal Cunt is a Boston-area trio that specialized in one minute songs -- mostly because they had a drummer who could make Slayer's Dave Lomardo sound like he was sitting still.

Just yesterday I came across a band called Bomb Everything. Apparently their original name was Bomb Disneyland, but it caused legal problems...

21. "Johnny Hates Jazz".

 

Why would anyone give their band a name that expresses hatred of an entirely different genre of music.

It'd be like naming the Beatles "Ringo Thinks Mozart Sucks!"

23. Many years back

I hung around with a band that changed some of the members regularly which meant changing the name often. This always brought us around to joking about using the name "Tommy Ten Cent and the Pay Toilets" which also indicates how long ago that was.
