RAY AGAINST THE MACHINE

Worst band name

Recommended Posts

I haven't heard any of their stuff. Guess I'm just too old, but Scouting for girls really irritates me. It sounds too jimmy saville/ Rolf Harris . Repulsive .
Are there any band names you hate , regardless of whether you like them or not?

Really??? I agree it's a bit of a fey, even slightly camp name but I think it's a bit of a stretch to make that association.

Now Tight Fit on the other hand...

I thought Scouting For Girls was a play on Baden-Powell's 'Scouting For Boys' book title? It is a dreadfully naff name, admittedly.
I swear as much as the next docker, but I detest band names with profanity in them (that Anal C bunch being a a prime example). Trying faaar too hard to be controversial. "Look at us, we're being rude! *snigger*". Oh, grow up.

You are a very fortunate man. Trust me, if you think the band name's bad, the music is utterly contemptible.

The Killers.

I mean really...how many of us would read a wanted ad for a bass player, see that the band was called the killers and then dismiss it?

Always thought 'Gaye Bykers On Acid' smacked of trying a bit too hard.

I liked it when they played as Lesbian Dopeheads on Mopeds.

Indeed, it's like a grotesque parody of pop if it were written by a greetings card company!

Throbbing Gristle and Die Toten Hosen (or in English: The Dead Trousers) are but two that come to mind. One of my father's bands also figures: The Gut Bucket. They were all surgeons but never the less, not, IMHO a good band name.

The "Shy" part led to me think of another bad band name: Kajagoogoo. Sounds like an unfortunate incident involving a trouser zipper.

I used to knock around with these guys (if you look closely on the credits on the album, I am mentioned as 'the other Rob Palmer); they toured with Magnum and had Grant Nicholas from Feeder as lead vocalist for a period, They have reformed and are about to play some Prog festivals etc. Some ok material and I don't like to be disloyal but the name....?

How about 'Scraping foetus off the wheel'? yes, they existed (band name changed I think but all had 'foetus' in them somewhere).
