The Dead Kennedys Were Tame

I am obsessed with unusual band names, and I confess to keeping a running list on my laptop that I’ll add to whenever inspiration strikes. You never know when your polka-core group is going to take off. . . Anyway, in my online travels, here are some others that I’ve stumbled over that put my own to shame.

The Sphinctones
The Boxing Ghandis
Lady Chatterly’s Hampster
Toxic Shock
Jif & the Choosy Mothers
Hugh Jorgen
The Gaza Strippers
Dreaded Apparatus
Honkys Hung Like Donkeys
Cap’n Crunch & the Cereal Killers
The Phenobarbidols
New Squids on the Dock
Barry White Boys
The Kitshickers
Jehovah’s Wetness
The Yeastie Girls
Operation: Cliff Claven
Bjorn Again
The Glands of External Secretion
Joan of Arkansas
The Hostile Amish
Pumpin’ Ethyl
The Elastic Sausage
Vic Tayback & the Violent Payback
Bill Bixby’s Big-Ass Communist Eighteen-Wheeler
