    Default Worst band names?

    This is a great thing to discuss. There are so many awful band names that it can go on forever. Now, personally, I don't think that bands with ridiculous names like Toad the Wet Sprocket are nearly as bad as other, just plain uncreative ones. I can't STAND the emo-trash bands with the "Somebody Does Something" names. My vote for worst current band name has to be Boys Like Girls. That is the stupidest fucking name I think I've ever heard. If your band name is a three-word sentence with a subject, predicate, and direct object, you're not trying very hard. In fact, Subject Predicate is a far better band name than Boys Like Girls. Who else wants to weigh in on this one?

    Architecture in Helsinki, The Backstreet Boys (not really a band, but I always think of a dark alley lined with glory holes), Creedence Clearwater Revival, Death Cab for Cutie, Neutral Milk Hotel, Stone Temple Pilots, Stryper.

    I don't know why, but I've also always hated the name Hüsker Dü (Do You Remember, in Danish, with fake umlauts.)

    The Bravery is a pretty dumb name for a band in my opinion. Butthole Surfers. I like them...but really...and Oingo Boingo.

    Limp Bizkit and Hoobastank are great nominees. In that same crap genre, how about Crazy Town?

    I hate band names that start with a verb, like "Chasing" or "Seeking" or "Barfing".

    Taking Back Sunday is a pretty bad name. Participles should also be avoided in band names.
