Hi metalstormers,

The title is clear. Please remember and reply with the weirdest or funniest metal band names that you have come accross during your life in the scene.
It is in fact almost impossible to name a metal band nowadays that is not being used already, above all, if you want to give it a metalrelated name involving words like Hell, Warrior, Doom, Death, Thrash, Black, Red, Heavy, Pink...SORRY slip of the tongue, Steel, Fire and the like.
Last time I was in a band we were thinking in having the most strange name as possible so as to attract attention and, at the same time, not to be sued by another band with already that name. We thought about choosing: "Where is Bin Laden?" and translated from Spanish: 600 mb of Porno or Anita's great belches -Anita is a friend of mine with body of a model, face of an angel, not metalhead but a bit posh... and that belches like a drunk truckdriver-. Whenever she belches, everybody looks at me or another boy in the group.

The weirdest names I have heard from established bands are "Cadáveres de Tortugas" that means "Turtle corpses" that it is really twisted and weird and the best one: "Bodies in the gears of the apparatus" Fuck, that's a name. Complex and re-twisted.

I remember as well a discussion with a friend of mine that liked that musical genre that was called "Noise" 10 years ago. There were very strange band names in that label. Once he was naming some of them and we were laughing, then he said something that I did not understood. I said: what? Vaginal stone? -In Spanish: piedra vaginal.
He said: NO, weird, you are twisted. That name makes nonsense. PERA, Pera vaginal! -IN English: Vaginal pear. The real name was even more strange that the one I understood.

Well. Please tell me the weirdest names you have come accross during your life and we will laugh or even fear the twisted minds of their members.
S.O.D. Stormtroopers of Death is one to fear.

Bye.

I saw some of the (mostly pretty shitty) grindcore bands named here all ready but the weirdest I've ever met is an Austrian, also rather stupid goregrind band called Vaginal Penetration Of an Amelus With a Musty Carrot.

Not weird, but very funny: Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt. Hilarious.

All I ever need to know before I died was that someone out there used this as a name for their band.

(Also: Bandcamp linkage for anyone interested)

To be honest that was the only reason why I listened to their album. I needed to know what a band with a name like that sounded.

Not nearly what I expected. I was hoping for a one-man shoegaze/drone/ambient/post-punk thing. With an album cover of a guy who looks like Zach Galfifijkdfhis wearing a mystical wolf shirt, and he'd write songs about the one-man wolf pack...

Zach Galifianakis. I finally learnt to write and pronounce his name after watching one of his shows. You have a problem with Greek people. Racist.

Yeah you'd think the music could be as interesting as the name. It's often a disappointment with bands like that.

Sounds a bit like a guy tuning up his guitar... Maybe he recorded the tuning and later recorded the music, but when he went to upload on youtube he got the wrong file?

Or maybe people still think an excruciatingly long and complicated band name will get you places. Sorry I went a bit anti-joke.

There's a local band called Nolti Nan Gana Nan Nolta, or NNGNN for short. Not as long winded as some of the previous examples but I still refer to them as NN-whatever they are called.

You'd expect a band with initials like NNGNN to have a great logo to go with it. But no.

I recently listened to an album by a powerviolence band named "I Hate Joanna Lumley". Poor Joanna.

I always thought Wolves in the throne room was a weird (not in a funny way) but great name, It just sounds very random, is their some sort of story or meaning behind it?

Still think that Pink Cream 69 takes the cake.
