Over many months of cataloging North Brooklyn concerts for our weekly event round-up, I began to notice some trends in band naming. Now I’m certain there are many a list of popular and/or obscure baby names, but I have yet to see one quite like this.
So in honor of Northside Festival and Brooklyn indie music in general, I decided to break down the weirdest band names I’ve come across into some helpful encyclopedic categories. All of these bands have passed through Brooklyn at some point in their careers and each and every one have something else in common: a really bad ass/bizarre or just plain disgusting name. Bon appetite! Here are the winning bands:
MYSTICAL FUSION ANIMALS
Pussywolf (This wolf either lives in a vagina or is part worlf/part vagina. Both are gross.)
GOASTT i.e. Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger
Sick Llama (Call Obama, ’cause his llama needs some health care)
DIRTY WEIRD SEX
Syphilitic Lust (STD themed)
Big Muff Radio
Mannequin Pussy (Pussy sub-category)
Unicorn Hard On
Dead Sexy Sheila
If you have any weird band names that can top these, comment below. I dare you.
