Worst band names ever

Courtesy of Maxim, here’s a list of The Worst Band Names Ever. (Found via Stereogum.)

I’ll certainly go along with them in naming Limp Bizkit and Toad the Wet Sprocket as truly horrible band names. But, hey, what’s wrong with Men Without Hats (besides the music)?

A few suggestions I’d add to the list:

Better Than Ezra

Dogs Die in Hot Cars

Cherry Poppin’ Daddies

Panic! At The Disco (I particularly detest wandering exclamation points.)

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead (Love the band, hate the name.)

Godspeed You Black Emperor! (As much as I love this band, it was a toss-up between including this on a list of best band names ever or worst band names ever. But, then, damn if the pretentious collective from Montreal didn’t move the exclamation point in later iterations of the band name, producing Godspeed You! Black Emperor. I still love their music, though.)
