2008’s Worst Band Names…. Ever!

 

A.V. Club calls out
the year’s most egregious offenders….

 

By Fred Mills

 

 

Those astute culture vultures over at the A.V. Club are at
it again, and this one’s a corker. On a scale of 1-10 of awesomeness, I’d have
to say this one also goes to “11” – if nothing else, just for the sheer
tenacity involved in keeping track of “the worst and funniest” band names they
came across this year.

 

Their official “winner”? Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head (pictured, above), from Seattle. Big ups to the Nat crew!

 

It’s a pretty huge list, so go to the site and take a look
at the entire thing
. But for my money, some of the best picks are as follow:

 

 

Metal – (tie)
Terminally Your Aborted Ghost, Cemetery Rapist

 

Melodramatic Theater
Nerd
Names – Druids Of Huge

 

Emo – Your Kisses
Cause Crashes

 

Funk – Weapons of
Mass DeFunktion

 

Truth In Advertising – Shitty Shitty Band Band

 

Hippie-Sounding Nonsense – Fragyle Vibes

 

Hey, We Smoke Pot! – Post Mortem Bong Hit

 

Whores, Sluts, Pussy
& Bitches, Inc
. – Gestapo Pussy Ranch

 

Scatology
Farticus

 

Sex
Evangenitals

 

First Person – I
See Hawks In L.A.

 

F-Bombs – Fucked
By The State

 

Reworking Proper
Names & Trademarks
– Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head

 

Movie/TV References – Previously On Lost

 

Wha? – A BIG YES…
and a small no

 

Just Plain Stupid – We Go To 11
