Some name their latest purchase a Germ,instead of a pearl...but better watch out naming it a Germ, cause in these times of period you never know...lol :D


-Not Fragile
-Mekong Delta
-Chroming Rose
-Zed Yago
-Sex Attack


Metalcore or whatever band names that rise a lot of questions, like... (Blow)job for a Cowboy, The Black Dahlia Murder, Bring Me the Horizon...
Speaking of METAL... I'm not sure, but pretty much anything that you encounter while checking random bands at metal archives...

Into Glory Ride

Always be suspicious towards bands with sentences and half sentences as names! We butter the bread with butter?!? Of course there are exceptions (Baise ma hache, Regarde les hommes tomber,


I always thought the name Accept was kinda weird and non-sense for a band. Don't get me wrong, they are one of my favorite bands, but still I think its pretty random for a band name.


Vaginal Penetration of an Amelus with a Musty Carrot


Intracerebrally Consuming Cephalalgia Through The Cranium Macerating Debrisfucked Manure Ingested Remains Of The Mindfucked Cataplexic Wicked Mankind Whom Fistfucked The Progenies From The Deepest Depths Of The Analmaggot Raped Human Pieces Of Erotic Shitmasses Which Gave Birth To Worthless Eunuchs As Travesty For Cumstained Whorefaced Sluts Enslaved By This Stupid Society Full Of Fetal Garbages

also known as 55Gore for short


Anal Cunt
The Unspeakable Cult Ov Goatpenis
Goat Thrower
We Butter Our Bread With Butter
Inhaling The Stench Of Mustard Gas
1349 (Its the year that the Black Plague hit Norway its weird but its cool)

Plus 90% of Grindcore, Pornogrind, Brutal Slamming Death Metal bands.

I could go on for days...I sometimes find the most fucked up weird band titles I can find to play on my show for fun.


you know goat thrower??


Not personally, But I am familiar with a little.

Because it is the "Year Of The Goat" when I did my radio show one night I played bands with "goat" in their name and I discovered them through that.


That's cool, yeah it's a couple guys from Boston thrash/fastcore band psycho, one of many side project they got going on... was surprised to see the name mentioned by someone from Australia of all places haha

If you want another "goat" band for your show, look into Goat Felch, a kind of black metal/grind project, again with Charlie from Psycho on drums and also Terry from grief on guitar....they got some live videos on YouTube but their demo is sold out I think, pretty cool nonetheless!


Awesome! Sounds good, Haha will look up Goat Felch! Thanks for the info.

I'm always on the look out for new stuff, weird and quirky is some of the best kinds.


Ahahahaha Goat Thrower this one is good shit! Are they some kind of Bolt thrower cover band with a hint of satanism inside?


wouldn't be surprised if the name was inspired by bolt thrower but musically theyre more of a punk/grind style with some weird vocal effects! heres a link to a teaser trailer for the new album, available from bestal burst records or Charlie infection's distro site infectiondistro.com



Mitochondrion is by far the most stupid name a band could pick...


haha very true . But Mitochondrion are a very interesting band


Satan's Almighty Penis - black metal, not a joke band they're actually pretty good but goofy name

Lucifer's Foreskin - black industrial that is also quite good

Hummingbird of Death - fastcore from Idaho, they are called that because their songs are so ridiculously short, blowing through 20 or more songs in mere minutes, the way a hummingbirds wings flap extremely rapidly in a short time

Kilslug - punk/sludge from Boston

just a few off the top of my head


The Academy Is...
We Butter The Bread With Butter
Sunn O)))


What about Extreme Napalm Terror? Napalm Death is Dead is another favourite of mine.


Extreme Napalm Terror is the definition of how plagiarism doesn't work out in the end.




Disneyland After Dark




October 31
Deströyer 666
any grind/powerviolence band named after a celebrity (ex: Cage Grind Noir, CHARLIExSHEEN)


Nothing will ever top Crustina Aguilera.


YES! Totally forgot about that


Crustin Bieber




Crustina Aguilera ;)




Maybe Scheisse Minnelli will??


Ahahaha this thread is gold!


Den Saakaldte
Carpathian Forest
Dr. Living Dead


Why is Nyogthaeblisz a weird name? I know people have a hard time pronouncing it, but I doubt it's as weird as some other names out there. Also if you knew what it meant you'd know that that name perfectly embodies what they are as a band, both sonically and thematically.


It looks weird, it sounds weird, thus it is weird. Don't take everything so seriously.


I wasn't being defensive or anything. Just curious!


Ok, sorry, I misunderstood you then. But yeah, as I said, it looks weird and sounds weird.


I've always thought Lawnmower Deth was a weird name.







Sex Gepard
Nanowar of steel


yeah, I still don't really know how to pronounce Sunn O)))

(sun oh? or is it kinda irish like sinead o'connor or siouxsie and the banshees)


t.b.a. (to be announced) - as band name really weird for me


Paracoccidioidomicosisproctitissarcomucosis - Goregrind from mexico.


Cliteater! Great band BTW.


Not the name itself is weird, but just the sound of Flotsam and Jetsam (at least in my language) really sounds like slapping your testicles against someones face. When you prenounce it at least it sounds like that to me. But the band itself is great imho.
Also always found the fascination with and use of stuff as names from middle earth/tolkien stuff in Black Metal quite interesting. It has its place in power metal but why black metal? Always wondered


I think in black metal the focus is more on the dark/evil characters than the more benign Hobbits and elves.... also I think it kinda fits how everything in middle earth is very European, kinda harkens back to like pre-Christian europe I guess, lots of black metal bands have great admiration and respect for their ancestry and related cultures...
I think tolkein's stories of middle earth are a great theme for just about any kind of metal personally, no matter what style you're playing, middle earth and it's inhabitants make a great theme to base the music around!


That makes alot of sense! Thanx for explaining man!


I think it's just because names like Burzum and Gorgoroth sound evil, or at least kinda dark. Also because black metallers tend to be huge fuckin nerds ;)


agreeing on the flotsam and jetsam. never though about it that way though. it allways just sounds like a shitty children cartoon to me.


I just found this on utube :


Enjoy Maximum Oversatan !


Part 1 is a odd name, before they reunited a few years back it was almost impossible to find them online. when searching them on youtube you had to remember the names of songs (cause writing band or the genre in your search didnt work), but the only song i allways remembered was Incest. so the first few results where allways documentarys.

Rudimentary Peni is also odd, they even admit it in sone of their songs on Cacophony.

another punk band, saw them a few years back, was named Revenge Of The Psychotronic Man. damn do i hate typing that.

as for metal bands, i allways thoug Angel Witch was odd. never made much sense to me.
i used to thing Bolt Thrower was a very odd name, allways imagined someone just throwing bolts.. but then i learned its a warhammer weapon or something. i still imagine someone throwing bolts..

in the Netherlands we used to have some pop band thing in the 80's named B.Z.N. (Band Zonder Naam) wich translates to ''Band Without a Name''


BZN is strange indeed. Speaking about non metal makes me remember TAFKAP is quite odd as well


B.Z.B. (Band zonder banaan) english: Band without a banana.
They are great tho, plus they are from the village next to my hometown.
Volkel is kut, hier valt tog niks te neuken, want iedere keer als ik mezelf mastrubeer dan denk ik tog steeds weer, Volkel is kut!!! :-)



I also have that problem with Bolt Thrower.


In 2007 at a Wishbone Ash concert the opening band for this evening was named "Special Guest", and yes this was the real name of the group... the ticket said: "Wishbone Ash + Special Guest", wish wasn't a lie, no suprise act, just a lame cover band calling themselves "Special Guest"




As much as I like them, Mount Salem and Crucified Mortals are weird names.


"Infernal Execration" is a dumb ass band band name, in my opinion, even though I like the music.

The word "Goat" is overused in band names anyway. "Goat Thrower" is probably dumbest name I've heard so far, but "Goatwhore", "Goat Penis", "Goat Semen", etc. are pretty fucking stupid as well.

This whole thread reminds me of a part of a Louis CK bit:

"I'd like to name my kid a whole phrase, you know? Something like 'Ladies and gentlemen', that'd be a cool name for a kid. 'This is my son Ladies and gentlemen!' Then, when he gets out of hand I get to go 'Ladies and gentlemen, please!'"



I can't believe nobody has mentioned Paracoccidioidomicosisproctitissarcomucosis. Craziest name I've ever heard of, and one of the few logos I can't even begin to read.


Someone already did lol I wonder if some of these goregrind bands can pronounce their own band names haha


It's incredibly simple to pronounce. It's just few diseases put together.


Simple, really.


Snoopy's TapeWorm:
This was always one of my favorite names.

Living Dead Hedgehog

Every Metalcore bands that have a sentence as a band name:
- The Devil Wears Prada
- Bullet For My Valentine
- We Butter The Bread With Butter
- Asking Alexandria
- Feed Her To The Sharks
- The Bunny, The Bear
- We Came As Romans
- Sarah Where Is My Tea
Deathcore bands too:
- War From A Harlots Mouth
- As Blood Runs Black
- Emmure
- Thy Art Is Murder
- Marky Mark Fights A Sharky Shark
4 words for a band name and it's enough already ahaha
Also, the modern Hardcore band Comeback Kid which I found kinda odd before.

But the real champion is: Eximperituserqethhzebibšiptugakkathšulweliarzaxułum (more complicated than 55gore because on it's pronunciation and because it's only one word)

The Circle Pit got some articles about weird band names: https://www.thecirclepit.com/2015/05/these-are-the-most-ridiculous-band-...


Some band from Denmark called Abarzäkïvömævüøth, I haven't been able to find any of their stuff, however, I've seen a few pages on them, but never any of their music.


Sex with Miners




Bathtub Shitter


pasztörözött (i mean is right written),yacøpsae,7 minutes of nausea,vaginal jesus and the coolest name - Electro Hippies


Öxxö Xööx comes to mind.


Satans Almighty Penis
Oral Fistfuck


I always thought vital remains was a bit of an odd name


Massive Appendage (aus)


Haha...nothing funny about that.....just stating a fact. We're Australian, we have Massive Appendages. Well except for Nater..he lets the country down , but if we average it out nationwide we can cover for him.


A psychedelic doom band I'm listening to right now called Bees Made Honey in the Vein Tree (Ger). Just stumbled across their newest album "Medicine" and I'm suuuuuper digging it. Not full-on metal but it's eerie and heavy as fuck. 10/10 recommend with headphones!

lobo ibérico

Core bands have the worst and stupid names and not to mention their style of music is horrible.

Der Todesking

Old Lady Drivers

Der Todesking

Syphilitic Vaginas always gives me a good laugh

Chemical Burn

Misantropical Painforest
Fuck You Written in Shit
7.5 Tonnes of Beard
William Christ and the One Man Orgy


weekend nachos


plus first time I heard 'charles bronson', I thought, huh?


I remember seeing records by "Black Mayonnaise", "Noothgrush" and "The Meatshits" at a store when I was a kid, couldn't stop laughing.
This one isn't metal, but in the 80's there was a band in Florida called "Big Dick and the Extenders", fronted by a large guy named Richard.


I also always thought incantation to be an unorthodox name for a death metal band...I first thought it was some kind of folk metal or within temptation-esque act


Another weird core band name: Eskimo Callboy


Not metal but theres a punk band called "this bike is a pipebomb" which i always thought was a strange name. One of my favorite bands tho.


I think "The Doors" is a weird band name.
