Top 10 Dumbest Band Names compiled


Readers of Rolling Stone magazine have come up with the top ten dumbest band names.

Included in the list are Hootie and the Blowfish, Chumbawumba, The Beatles – and a couple we can’t say… out loud!

Nickelback made it to Number 5 – their name came from Chad Kroeger working in Starbucks and saying “here’s your nickel back” when giving people their change.

Hoobastank were at number 2 – their name was just a word that they made up that they thought sounded cool…

And at No. 1… LIMP BIZKIT – apparently Fred Durst came up with the name because he wanted people to think the band sucked.

Strangely… lots of people do.
