Semi-pretentious bollocks:

- Dream Theather
- Sonata Arctica
- Pain of Salvation
- Stratovarius
- Dragonforce (see, as it's metal! With the force of a dragon! Dragons are strong!)

And Oi!/punkbands have a history with some of the worst bandnames ever.

- Cocksparrer
- The 4-skins (so you don't actually think they have a lost punk walking around)
- Lower Class Brats
- Combat/Condemned/insert-random other c-word 84
- Anti-Nowhere League.

Just. No.

There is nothing particularly bad about any of these names

Bands i've never heard but have a bad name:
Akercocke
All Shall Perish
Anorexia Nervosa
Order of the Ebon Hand

Or these ones. Actually, I rather like Anorexia Nervosas name, but I'm a reasonably big fan of Anorexia Nervosa, although mainly I'm a fan of Hreidmarrs side project The Count Nosferatu Kommando, which is just about the best name for a band ever. Especially when all your songs are called things like 'Bunkermoon Khaos 3', 'The Cyber Crusdade of a Sado-Necrophile', 'Jim Beamed Ahnenherbe TV', 'Get a Gun, Shoot at Random' etc.

Out of interest, do they sound anything like Impaled Northern Moonforest?

For me personally, Hoobastank and Lifehouse. Come on, wtf do they mean?

The latter is a reference to The Who, who are Lifehouse's spiritual predecessors, obviously.

I think they just picked "Hoobastank" because it sounds funny.

They are grim, but not that grim.

This otherwise shitty punisher video has a poor quality version of 'Get a Gun, Shoot at Random' as its soundtrack.

It's not a bad name, so much as one that doesn't make sense:

Virginia Coalition; good band, but for some reason the name reminds me of like an army of some sort, which goes completely against their sound.  It confuses me.

Hmm, apparently they're called The Cosa Nostra Klub now.  And they aren't bad either.

Margot and the Nuclear So and So's

it sounds like it was a first pick from one of those band generators.

Personally I've always been a fan of Major Organ and the Adding Machine (partially because it has been around for a while, but mostly because the abstractness of the name fits with the abstractness of the sound)

Banane Metalik. I mean, yeah, it's french, but when you look at it, you think "Okay, metal banana, kinda sucks". But no, it's "Killer Bananas" which is somehow even WORSE!

Tenpole Tudor. Demented Are Go! The Astounding Roy Gorbisons. Knock 'Em Stiff. Uptown Savages. Nekromantix (how clever...or not)

Also, local band Rigor Phallus, who were nominated by The Onion as worst band name.

Enuff Z'nuff.

Akercocke are actually very good if you like really intense death metal. Also their fashion sense cannot be faulted.

There's a local band that I used to gig with. They used to be called Creep which I thought was pretty cool and whatnot but they just changed it to The Spokesmen for the N.W.O. and now I want to see them play less.

Nothing can beat made up words as band names though. Like the name of my band, which shall remain suspiciously secret until someone bugs me to get me to tell them what it is.

A girl I knew told me that a friend of hers wanted to name a band Rodney King and the LA Riots. Shame they didn't, though. Because that's awesome.

You see, when I hear a bad band name I go "That's AWESOME!" I'm probably seriously mal-adjusted. I still think Echo and the Bunnymen is a GREAT name, even though it raises the eyebrows of everyone I know.

Although I do recall a J-Pop artist with the name of Tommyfeburary13 or something like that. Sounds like a fucking e-mail address!

hehe, my friend is in a band called Penis Crack Stem.  Imagine that.  He's also in this band with a name that's like 20 words and number segments long, I can only remember the last two being 666 2006.
