As your favorite cultural echelons, guarding that thin line of what’s musical in Norway versus the Emperor’s New Clothes, we present to you a list of Norway’s shittiest band names.

You know, it might not be a good idea to choose your band name while high or drunk at a party.

No grasp of the English language, random nonsense, or just plain stupid? You decide. Our best of the worst is divided up into the most popular categories, and scroll to the bottom with one resolute winner at the end.

Compiled by Thomas Brady & The Editors. Many thanks to the NRK’s Urørt website for giving us a source for research.

10. You know that game when you turn movie titles in their porno version? Or played that game when you replace a word in a band´s name with vagina? Sonic Vagina. The Revolting Vaginas. Einstürzende Vagina. You get the point. Well, in this category, we had so many bands whose names sounded like they were used in this game. But they weren’t.

DREAD MEN WALKING
WHORE ADORE
ERECTILEDYSFUNCTION
CHITTY CHITTY BANG GANG


ROYAL PORN CELEBRITIES
HOPE I DIE VIRGIN
FRANKYWANKY
PILLOWTALK EDDIE
NPB (Nude Pube Banglers)
HOWLIN’ PIMP-O-NEGROS

9. Then you have the cracker category.

ASSTRONAUT
PLUMBO
JABBA THE BUTT
SHITZOO

8. Then the emo-leaves-falling-outta-ashes-outta-my-mother’s-dark-bosom-because-my-high-school-teacher-never-taught-me-how-to-disconnect-infinitives, category.

HURT SOMEONE HANDSOME
THE SKY IS A ROOF
LIFE IS A TRAGIC WAY TO DEATH
LIKE RATS FROM A SINKING SHIP
YOUTH PICTURES OF FLORENCE HENDERSON
THE SEPTEMBER WHEN
SNAKES IN SOUTHERN FLAMES

7. Then the rhetorical statement category. Note to bands, never start a band name with “Do You (blank)?” because the answer will most always command a resounding, (Fuck) No!

WHY DON’T WE LOVE LUCY
DO YOU LOVE MELENA?
NOW WE’VE GOT MEMBERS
AT LEAST WE HAVE A BAND
TOMORROW WE MOVE TO HAWAII

6. Then band names that start exactly like, a million other band names.

YOYOYO ACAPULCO
BONELESS MARSHMALLOWS
SASSY KRAIMSPRI
KAKKMADDAFAKKA
MASTER PIECE OF CAKE

4. Others you can imagine sounded good in Norwegian-English, or Norwegian. But just not in English.

TOMMY TOKYO & STARVING FOR MY GRAVY
GROOVEFINDER
WE ARE MYSTERY
BERCEDES-MENZ

3. Others want short catchy titles as to so badly to be in the NME.

ABOVE SNAKES
I SEE HORSES
EYE EMMA JEDI

2. Battling for Second Place is:

  2. TheSeaman says:

    What about Project Herpes?
    Also, Erectile Dysfunction changed their name to Project Lhabia, go figure.

  3. sissyfus says:

    How about spelling Now we’ve got Members corretctly? How hard can that be?
    Suggest a better name and we’ll take it!

    • Super ! ADMIN says:

      Well, for starters, Now We HAVE Got Members is even worse then Now We Got Members, its an excessive passive verb. But we corrected it, band member. And apparently, Erectile Dysfunction is up for grabs.

  4. newziq says:

  5. McFearless says:
