There's a thread for band names that do make sense, so how about one for band names that don't make sense?

The first one I can think of off the top of my head is My Chemical Romance. They got their name from Queen, but they don't write songs with a sense of humor, like Queen did.

They got their name from a book.

The Beatles name doesnt make much sense at all. But who cares really.

The Eagles, any band name that sounds like a sports team doesn't make sense.

Jethro Tull has no member with the name Jethro Tull
Balken Beat Box had no beat boxing
Yes is just a ridiculous name for a band.

Unless they suggest you call yourselves The Dumbening.
That would be cool. But don't use it for pub quiz team names, I've baggsied it for that.

Apparently, they asked an audiesnce of drunks for suggestions. Which makes you wonder how they write songs, if they can't even think up a band name.

Why, if you're a musical group, have the word 'deaf' in your band name and then proceed to spell it wrong?

Well firstly, Mama, Dead!, and Blood are all somewhat ironic. Secondly, they didn't get their name from Queen. Thirdly, why do they need to share that exact quality for it to make sense?

Jethro Tull was an agriculturalist from the 18th century. He pioneered many of the techniques we still use today.

They named the band after him.

Demiricous - they admitted to making the word up, as it really means nothing
Behold.... the Arctopus - wut, seriously. wut
Living Death - oxymoron?
myGRAIN - who's grain is it and why do they have it?
Psychostick - as sticks lack brains, I find that it is probable that they are incapable of being "psycho"

These are a few, among many others in my collection.

It can only be assumed they were a group of moderately dyslexic musicians who wanted to imply they were the best thing since Beethoven. And look at how that turned out for them...

Aha. I think I can roughly explain the Biffy Clyro one. I think the band went to go and see Cliff Richard at an autograph signing or something like that and they got a pen from him and they called it the "Cliffy Biro" as in a biro pen. But then for the band they just changed the letters round.

Maybe some band names are abstract and not meant to be interpreted?/ Just because you don't understand the meaning or know of the origin of a band's name doesn't give you the right to criticize it.
