Bad band names

Thinking of starting a band and just can’t seem to get the name? Well, AVClub have some suggestions from last year that will give you some pointers on what NOT to call your group. These bands have names that are either totally forgettable or that you will remember for all the wrong reasons.

From the boring Phunk And Associates, which sounds more like a law firm than a musical collective, to the Dyslexic Speedreaders which is just plain weird. We just can’t think why these bands never made it on the album charts!

Well, at least it’s not as bad as The Asbestos Tampons and Electric Vagina, which are frankly just shocking! Saying that though, we normally would’ve thought it was better to steer clear from anything gynaecological, but they could win a certain advertising contract. We can just see it now. Out with the soul-diva, in with the guitars. All together now: ‘Waaaaaaaaaaaow, Bodyform! Bodyform for yoooou!’

Our favourite however is Dysfunkshun Junkshun. We can’t help but think the Dyslexic Speedreaders may have played a part in that one...
