Band names that are a tad misleading

Recommended Posts

Or, in a similar vein, ‘90s nerd rock trio Ben Folds Five.

The Eagles.  I know birds can sing, but play in a rock n roll band, nah...

The Carpenters. Neither of them could come up with a decent dovetail joint.

Marilyn Monroe (quite unknown punk band)
Must admit I loved that name.

Jethro Tull. Surprisingly devoid of agricultural knowledge. Conversely, The Levellers are quite liberal in their outlook.

Yes, they’re not even birds of any kind, let alone raptors

The Sisters of Mercy - clearly weren't and still aren't Nuns.

Was Not Was - were they??

Vampire Weekend. Not vampires or even the slightest bit Goth. In fact some of the most insipid ska I have had the misfortune to have to listen to.

There used to be a Nottingham band called Hot Japanese Girl, composed of three beardy white blokes, so none of them were Hot, Japanese or Girls.

Barenaked Ladies. No they aren’t. 

Similarly, Springbok Nude Girls. Maybe not well known on here but they were a good band.

In Sydney, Oz, there was a band playing the pubs called Free Beer. Advertising that band caused landlords a lot of trouble when punters discovered the beer wasn't free!! They had to change their name to The Free Beer Band.

 

Also Ken Dodd's Dad's Dog's Dead had nothing to do with Ken Dodd or dogs, dead or otherwise!

I was in a straight ahead blues band called The Soul Kitchen. That name caused us a lot of grief when people discovered they hadn't booked a band they could dance to!

British Sea Power. Not sure any navel engagements where ever undertaken.  And despite an edgy name, they are a bit lame, sound like “Colon” from the fast shows Indie club
