10: NEW YOUNG PONY CLUB
New Young Pony Club come from a long line of bands with Pony Club in the name. 'The Pony Club' is the name of an Irish urban soul band, 'The Young Knives' were 'Pony Club' for a short time back in the day.
...and now the New Young Pony Club have decided to continue this long running tradition of stupidity.
9: KEN DODD'S DAD'S DOG'S DEAD
Yes, seriously it's a real name... I actually kinda like this purely for the reason that it's hard to say, and therefore makes radio dj's look like douche bags when they try and say it. If only they were more famous. That said... stupid band name.
Hmmmm let me guess ... some kinda femonist all-female hard rock/punk rock band from the late 90's ???
7: CRAZY PENIS
6: CRADLE OF FILTH
This is just the tip of the 'icky names' iceberg.
This one is just kind of icky isn't it? Nobody likes to associate cradles with filth (or vice versa)...
...nobody, that is, except the lead singer of Cradle of Filth, Daniel Davey, and guess what kids... Daniel Davey is just sooooooo jolly proud of his icky band name, that he's called himself Dani Filth.
Awwww.. God bless his cotton socks!
5: ROTTING CHRIST
I'm not sure if these controversial for controversial's sake pope-haters have a genuinely serious religious chip on their shoulder OR if they just weren't picked up and hugged enough when they were young'uns and deep deep down they really just wanted to be noticed and loved just like their commercial hit parade heroes at the top of the hit parade charts.
Oh, hang on its lead singer Sakis Tolis on the phone... "What's that Sakis ? You think Christianity is the worst thing to happen in human history ?? ... yeaaa ... ok bye!"
4: GAY DAD
Yes, that's Gay Dad.
You may be thinking 'Gay Dad... ? What kind of a gay name is that... ?', but hold on a sec you huge homophobe cause Gay Dad were knighted as the "saviours" of British rock by music magazines like Select and Melody Maker, thus making them cool.
They were also knighted by us as the saviours of stupid band names, thus making them un-cool again.
3: AN*L C**T
Paging Sigmund Freud...
Unfortunately, trying to find any images relating to this band on Google was like looking for a needle in a haystack... a rather obscene haystack.
These dudes are like the slightly-less-repulsive little siblings to the above weirdos.
They want to be naughty and rebellious too - they just didn't want to actually get into any trouble.
So that wraps up our tour of the most lame names known to the universal language of music and leads us to the worst band name of all, in our humble opinion...
1: CHERRY POPPIN' DADDIES
This is wrong on so many levels. I just hope to god it wasn't directly inspired by anything.
