More Kind of Dumb Band Names












Name Nerds main

Ok, I work in a record store, and am constantly seeing band names that make me snort. Here's part II of my list of Kind of Dumb Band Names. To balance it out, I've also listed some of my favorite band names!

As before, I am not making any kind of judgement on the talent of these bands (in most cases I've never even heard them); I'm simply making fun of their names.

Band Name My Inane Commentary
