I was reading the new December issue of Q magazine today and noticed that Half Man Half Biscuit has a new album out. This is a band name that has always made me laugh Big Grin .

I know there are many weird and wonderful band names out there and am wondering what your personal favourites are........ care to share???

I like most the bands with "not so great" names, don't like very many of the bands with "great" names, hate most the bands with stupid names.Strange.
Okay, my funniest (that havent been mentioned, I don't think) would have to be...

Strawberry Switchblade

Spandau Ballet

Mr Floppy
(who really poked fun at themselves and everything around them, to be honest... for evidence, listen to their definitive CD "The Unbearable Lightness of Being a D*ckhead")

The Fat Chick from Wilson Phillips (I am not kidding, there was a band who CALLED themselves that!)

and I can't believe anyone hasn't mentioned...

Schnell Fenster

(this one, as I recall, caused great hilarity in my Year 10 German class, way back in 1988, on the other side of the world... "I mean, who'd call a band 'Fast Window'???" who indeed.... Razzer )
