12 Worst Band Names in the History of Music

Goo Goo Dolls

Unfortunately, when they chose the name, Goo Goo Dolls capped their ceiling for fans. Only the most self-assured men can face their friends with a straight face and say, "Yeah, I listen to the Goo Goo Dolls. I love them."

Diarrhea Planet

Elon Musk is spending all these resources trying to pioneer a colony on Mars. Should he consider Diarrhea Planet instead? Aside from the smell, it is a viable option. There's plenty of water and just enough food to survive.

Bowling for Soup

The rock band Bowling for Soup joined forces in mid-90s Texas. Presumably, the band members were engaged in an old-fashioned bowl-off. What's the winner get? Naturally, a steaming bowl of crab bisque.


What even is a Hoobastank? It sounds like another echelon of badness below the level of stank. Those three-day-old Taco Bell burritos didn't just stink; they hooba-stank.


During the band-name brainstorming session, the British rock band kept throwing a scrap of paper with Chumbawumba on the ground. But it kept getting up again. They were never going to keep that name down.
