Almost every band on this list needs a mention in here even if most are not metal enough for this site. Many of the names are so bad I cannot comprehend it at all.

Yes... Edguy is such a horrible name. So is Between the Buried and Me. And Newsted. My Dying Bride, Metal Church, Diamond Head... Rotting Christ, Gorgasm, Gorefest. Gorguts, Gorod... Anything Gor(...), really. Especially Gorgasm. Ridiculous. I also don't like Lock Up, Misery Index, Malevolent Creation, Asphyx, Akercocke, Cattle Decapitation etc.

You do realize Newsted is just named that way cause it is Jason Newsted's band right? Many musicians just name a band after their own name...

I also like the name Asphyx a lot as it is just short for asphyxiation and with the shortened spelling sounds even more metal now. Lock Up is just short and simple and sounds fine to me.

There is a Malaysian death metal band called Lavatory. Even if they're as good as Vomitory or Disma I will never be able to take them seriously.

Recently saw a band in HellsHeadbangers called Shitfucker. I mean seriously?

I kind of like the name "Shitfucker". Not great as a strictly metal band name but for like a messy powerviolence/thrash/crust type of band that'd be pretty boss. Very basic string of profanity but it does have a ring to it.

yeah, tha'ts pretty much what they're like; we played with that band in Detroit. Oddly enough, our music requires us to be rather tight, but we were all so drunk that we ended up fucking shit up even more than SHitfucker...:P

I don't think anyone's mentioned these WTF band names so far:

1. Eximperituserqethhzebibšiptugakkathšulweliarzaxułum (What... the... fuck?!)

2. Milking the Goatmachine (bitch, are you for real?)

I've heard good things about Galaktik Cancer Squad, but the name is so fucking idiotic I just can't even give them the time of day. Despite the stupid first part, calling a one man band a "squad" just rubs me the wrong way.

Since this topic didn't define what genre, I'm going to go with "The Beatles". They may be pioneers of rock music, but what do beetles have to do with music. Now prior to that they were called "The Silver Beetles", even still. I don't get it.

Oh and also "Gaggle of Cocks"

Even if it wasn't a pun, why would band names all have to mechanically have something to *do* with the music? Plenty of the time it's just shit the band members make up because it sounds cool.

Anybody citing a band with a name in a foreign language in this thread, purely on the basis of it being a foreign language (and really, are there many complaints to be made about a name that's used to roughly mean "a black fog coming from a deep dark dense forest"?), can fuck off. It's utter naïveté in the highest regard, and half the time the offended party doesn't even know how the name is supposed to be pronounced. It reminds me of that time a couple of my friends (people who post on this board, not calling names) were complaining about Mgła's name not because of its meaning, but because it looked stupid and weird. Well no fucking shit it looks weird to you, you speak English and you're looking at a language whose phonetics and letter frequency you don't understand. It doesn't suddenly make the whole name bad, goddammit.

My own side project, Fuckface Academy. Complete rip-off of a Metalocalypse quote. I thought it was pretty bad, so I used it anyway.

As a non-speaker of Polish with only a scant understanding of Slavic pronunciation and vocab, I think Mgła have a great and fitting band name. Liked it before I looked up what it meant, like it even more now. It combines the simplicity of early black metal band names while being distinctive - since not many bands name themselves in Polish. I wear it proudly on a hoodie and t-shirt, haha.

For the huge part of society that has no interest in metal (and rock/music revelant to it) at all, if they know at least that metal is "loud rock music", if they are to name drop a band, ~99,9% of them can only name Metallica.


I had relatives who think "Metallica" is the term for the music genre.

For the topic, some worst band names I've come across are:

Beautician - came across them in an Autopsy tribute album. The name conjures up an image of a some gay dude who works at a beauty parlor. (Sorry for sounding homophobic but I'm seriously not)

Rectal Sludge - just plain disgusting. Also from the same Autopsy tribute album.

Matutina Noctem - Matutina was a name for some annoying house help in a local comedy series here in the Philippines. I checked the band's page and they already changed their name!

You're totally lost. If you were Romanian, a name like Negură Bunget would make perfect sense to you. Claiming a name looks weird because you're not familiar with their language is straight up ethnocentric and arrogant.

Morbid Angel - don't know why but the name always sounded uninspired to me
Sepultura - Same
Monstrosity - good band, bad name
Origin - even more so
Von Goat - combining the band Von and a random animal (i call Von Dog, Von Fish and Von Lion)
Judas Priest / Led Zepellin / most of the NWOBHM their names just sound silly in retrospect
Between the Buried and Me - amazing band, but the name makes no sense

worst of all ...

{Black|Dark|Red|Yellow|Blue} Funeral - we've heard enough Funerals (especially since most of the bands are average)

And because of this i´m the arrogant ?!. My friend, you don´t know what you talking about. Even for the english phonetics this name sounds strange . right ? And I don´t speak romanian.Therefore it may not strange for you or for them , but can be strange for me and for who don´t speak other 'uncommon' languages .Is just a cultural matter . Nothing to worry about ....

And if you were in the exctinct blackmetal.co.uk probably you would see the ethnocentrism, the arrogance , the ignorance and the petulance
in person. It didn´t even surprises me that some here avoid to talk about them .
