11 Weird and Somewhat Stupid Band Names
8. The The
Now this just seems a product of pure laziness. The alias for musician Matt Johnson, it almost appears pointless and very had to find on YouTube. Was he trying to grab attention with its simplicity or simply had no good ideas? While the music shows ambition, the name certainly does not.
7. Grandpa's Cough Medicine
Yeah, old-timey, back-porch rambling can seem a bit wheezy at times, but was there that much phlegm in their throats that they had to seek inspiration from old Granddad's stash of tonics? Robotripping is so very 1990s.
Then again, this is a bluegrass band whose song "The Murder Chord" tells a tale about a kid who gets into heavy metal and is subsequently inspired to murder his family. Best the group sticks with the cold remedies and stays away from problematic prescriptions.
6. Donna the Buffalo
A buffalo dubbed Donna? Really? Considering their populist sentiments, their handle does lend itself to a faithful following, aptly dubbed "the Herd." Still, one has to wonder, why so big on bison?
5. Half Man Half Biscuit
We're stumped as to the meaning of this one. Your guess is as good as ours.
4. The Naked and Famous
Sadly, this band from Aukland, New Zealand, is neither naked nor famous.
