The 20 Dumbest Band Names of All Time
15. Red Hot Chili Peppers
I guess you could say that the name of this band name suits the music and members perfectly, but I still prefer the original name of Tony Flow and the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem. It’s been said that the fellas had to play a live gig and didn't have a new name yet. Supposedly they took the RHCP name off of a flyer for a band called Chili Willy And The Red Hot Peppers. Either way, they could have done a whole hell of a lot better.
14. Forever the Sickest Kids
I can’t believe that a band this bad chose a name worse than their music. I don’t even know what Forever the Sickest Kids is trying to imply. I can only assume that every member of the band has some kind of life-threatening disease and they thought it would be a good idea start producing unlistenable power pop for a generation of gullible twelve-year-old girls.
Do I really need to defend this choice? I can’t even say Kip’s last name out loud without spitting up my bean and cheese burrito.
12. Boyz II Men
I love me some “Motownphilly,” but the creativity behind this group’s name is just plain stupid. What was Michael Bivins smoking when he decided to allow the Philadelphia legends to release R&B records under one of the worst play on words ever?
U2 can take their ambiguity and open-ended interpretations and shove them down their freakin’ throats. Calling yourself U2 and having a guitarist named The Edge might be one of the more self-indulgent acts in the history of music. Do people still really think that U2 is the best band in the world?
