Alright Capital Region- we asked and you answered.  You answered in the best way possible.  You answered with tons and tons of  ridiculous and crazy band names that made me laugh just as much as made me want to see some of these groups live.  Because really- wouldn’t anyone be curious about what a band named “Bloody Boogers” has to offer live??  So without further ado, here are some of the most noteable ridiculous band names from your Facebook responses!

    The The

    The The is an English post-punk band since the last ‘70s. Well, the name sure makes for an easy chant as the crowd is screaming for them to come on stage.

    Rampage Mushroom

    According to Josh P. who commented, these guys are a great early 90s thrash-punk band.  I’ve got to be honest though, their name makes me feel like I’m about to see a show involving LSD and jam music...

    Thank you Steve M., I will be having nightmares for days.  I looked this band up online and their masks may be more horrifying than their band name.  Also, if you want nightmares for days too, check out their official site.

    Toad the Wet Sprocket

    Thank you Robert S!  Ok, I love this band.  Really, “Come Down” is one of my favorites. I even worked for this band, and loved them live.  But what’s with the name!  Even IF there is a back story, who thought this was catchy???

    Goo Goo Dolls

    Since I mentioned the above successful band, I also have to mention Goo Goo Dolls.  Thanks for the suggestion Jeff H.!  Really, this was a great one.  I actually vividly remember the first time I learned their band name.  It was back in the ‘90s, I was watching a new music video of theirs on TV, and I literally did a double-take thinking that I was reading the bottom left corner wrong- you know, that area where the song information used to be...back when music videos were still played on TV...

    Porno Tongue

    Matt A, thanks for the suggestion!  This band sounds every bit dirty as it does every bit a spoof.  But I’m intrigued, their official site even has the tag line “you can’t unsee us.”  OK, now I need to see.

    Butthole Surfers

    Mentioned by two people- Patricia L. And David D.- this was one of the more obvious and best choices.  Love this band.  Their name?  Sounds like a great activity if you’re looking to get worms or a disease...

    Vomit Launch

    Does this sound like a name you’d see on a poster and go “oh, let’s hit that show!” because I don’t think it does.  However, it is a name notable for the ridiculous names list. Thanks Jim C.!

    Ouch. Just plain ouch.  This suggestion hurts, Jeff M.

    Ruth Adams and the World’s Most Dangerous Polka Band

    Oh I am ALL in for this one.  Polka and danger combined?! I need to see this warlock.  Thanks for the suggestion Dan P.- I’m already looking them up!
