marquee600 The 25 Most Ridiculous Band Names

If you can’t judge a book by its cover, then what about a band by its name? Not even close. Some of music’s most beloved acts have names that are unremarkable (The National) or would be groan-inducing puns if we weren’t so used to them (The Beatles). For some monikers, we’re laughing with the band (Diarrhea Planet). Others? Laughing at them (Kajagoogoo). In our research, we’ve found too many bizarre, unique band names that inspire either face-palms or chuckles to list, so these are our 25 favorites.
