You almost want to give this group a pass, because the phrase "I wrestled a bear once" is mildly amusing. But, by foregoing use of the space bar entirely, they have immediately lost all credibility. Kids, go home and think about what you've done.
This band is living proof for why you don't name yourselves based on what's on the current cover of Us Weekly. "This will be relevant forever!" the members of Natalie Portman's Shaved Head squealed in delight (in 2005).
For how hardcore Limp Bizkit was, it's easy to forget that they're literally named after a soggy piece of bread. However, maybe we shouldn't begrudge them too much for their moniker, because on the list of awful things Limp Bizkit has been associated with, their terrible name doesn't even crack the top twenty.
You know we couldn't make this list without including at least one ska group. I have to say, as a musical genre, ska is by far the most advanced at having band names with terrible, groan-inducing puns. This one is especially egregious, considering that there's zero correlation between ska music and the famous 1994 prison drama. Well, except for Andy's famous line, "Get busy living, or get busy skanking."
This pop punk group from New Jersey allegedly got their name because one of the band members had a baby with an enormous head, and the rest of the group found it funny. Now there's an awkward conversation to have with your kid in five to ten years...
Trust me, fellas, the only thing that offends me about your band is everybody's insistence of putting their hands in their pockets for the photo. Talk about cliche.
Truth be told, this band's name comes from a throwaway line of dialogue by Ricky Gervais in an episode of the British Office. Synth player Dan Coop later admitted in an interview, "No thought went into it whatsoever."
When I'm deciding whether or not to buy an album, conjuring the image of a sleazy TV used car salesman probably isn't your best course of action. That being said, if you throw in the free leather interior, we got a deal.
You know, it's so easy to hate Nickelback for their music, that we sometimes forget we can hate them for their name, too! Ugh, "Nickelback." What does that even mean? How can a band be so annoying in every facet? They're like the Wayne Gretzky of sucking.
