I imagine it would be hard to get some of these bands listed in a family newspaper. I remember the Plain Dealer here in Cleveland used to only list the Butthole Surfers if they were abbreviated "BH Surfers".

I hadn't thought I'd hear one worse than Anal Cunt, but I gotta give it Piles of Dead Jews and SHARON TATE'S BABY. Those take it to a new level.

I salute you.

Sharon Tate was an actress and Roman Polanski's wife. She was murdered by the Manson family (Charles Manson's "cult"). She was eight months pregnant at the time of her death. She was stabbed in the womb.

I've always liked the name of the band Fuckpriest Fantastic. And Fuck is a nice, mellow band when you get past the name.

Not a particularly bad band name, but I knew this band called The Thoroughfare Sandbaggers who had two songs called "Fist-Fucking Baby Jesus For Crack Money" and "Tori Amos Deserves a Good Knife Fuck".

For bands who have seen some amount of success, the swing revival band (echhhh) Cherry Poppin' Daddies always struck me as kind of gross. Certainly not as bad as some of the others, but they did have one hit.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Nazi Bitch and the Jews from Fresno. They were one of the 80 or so bands on the Maximum Hardcore "If punk is dead, what the hell is this" albumn. Although, often times their name was abbreviated to NBJ.

Trying to remember some of the hardcore band names. Dicks, Circle Jerks, Dead Kennedys, Butthole Surfers (usually called "surfers"), Millions of Dead Cops, Crucifucks,

i can't remember the name of the band with the singer Frank Discussion (who later ran away with Jello Biafra's wife) that did "Jesus entering from the rear." Dang, too much time in the slam pit since I just can't think of the name - some one help me out. We could really start going with song lyrics or just limit it to titles. Crucifucks "Hinkley had a vision" was right up there.
The Mentors had some of the rudest lyrics but their name wasn't so bad.

dammit, hamsters ate my post. I still can't believe that no one has mentioned Nazi Bitch and the Jews. Band outta Fresno and one of the 80 or so bands featured on the Maximum Rock n Roll's "If punk is dead, what the hell is this" album

Crucifuck's -- what a great band. Who could forget Hinckley had a Vision?

I always that the Dicks ranked pretty high up there for brevity. That and a 300 pound tranvestite anarchist lead singer (Gary Floyd who also had a Butthole Surfers song written about him) made for some pretty dang fun shows.

You're thinking of MRRs Not So Quiet On The Western Front comp. That was one of those life-changing records for me. Its been re-released BTW, and on vinyl too!

DICKS kick ass! "I Hope You Get Drafted" is the best war protest song EVER!

Not to hijack this thread or nuthin', but I have a feeling that that kind of 80s political punk is gonna have a big comeback any day now, and that brings us to another slightly yucky band name....Discharge (who also have a great new albom out BTW).

Woohoo! That's the first time anybody's damned me here so far! I agree that it's not as bad as some of the other stuff here, but still pretty icky. Another one I just remembered that is really quite tame compared to most of the bands in this thread, but still kind of gross is Three Inches of Blood.

Don't forget Anal Cunt's illustrious discography. They have several albums, and 1999's "it just gets worse" lives up to the name:


I Became A Counselor So I Could Tell Rape Victims They Asked For It
Easy E. Got A.I.D.S. From F. Mercury
I Like Drugs And Child Abuse
Laughing When Leonard Peltier Gets Raped In Jail
I Convinced You To Beat Your Wife On A Daily Basis
I Sent Concentration Camp Footage To Americas Funniest Home Videos
Rancid Sucks (And The Clash Sucked Too)
I Paid J. Howell To Rape You
I Pushed Your Wife In Front Of The Subway
Extreme Noise Terror Is Afraid Of Us
<<<these are just the first of 39 tracks.

There was a band called "ANNE FRANKENSTEIN" from SF around 2001-2002. They had a demo cd called "The diarrhea of..."

There's a pretty terrible Auckland punk band called Girls Pissing On Girls Pissing. Not hugely offensive per se, but I always get a kick out of imagining people saying they're going to see them live.

I had the pleasure of seeing 'Kunt and the Gang', a couple of times, about ten years ago. Some good, obscene comedy songs. But it was also funny how there was no 'Gang'. Just Kunt by himself, playing juvenile songs about masturbation, fittingly.

Not really offensive I guess, but it was startling way back when they were around:

Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band and their best song, "Boogie Till You Puke".

In its time, The Fugs was pretty obscene.

The Mothers was considered too dirty by their record Company, so they added "of Invention" to their name.

I love the Butthole Surfers, but I'm guessing they never would have had a hit if they'd kept one of their original names, The Inalienable Right To Eat Fred Astaire's Asshole.

Then we also have:
The Scrotum Poles
Bogshed
The Angel Sluts
Jon Cougar Concentration Camp
The Slits
Gay Witch Abortion
Joy Division
Cuntz
The Jackofficers (Butthole Surfers side project)
The Brian Jonestown Massacre
The Coathangers
Daisy Chainsaw
Fuck Buttons
Holy Fuck
The Homosexuals
Jackie-O-Motherfucker
James Dean Driving Experience
Johnny and the Self Abusers
King Kong Ding Dong
The Klitz
The Muffs
The Penetrators
Perfect Pussy
The Nipple Erectors
Psychedelic Horseshit
Sex Church
The Slugfuckers
The Snivelling Shits
Sperm Wails
Starfucker
Slutever
The Urinals


And one of my favorites, Tragic Mulatto, which is not too terribly offensive, but they did have an album called Hot Man Pussy, and their lead singer named herself Flatula Lee Roth, played the tuba, and usually performed in a diaper and duct tape.

There was a local (to me) band back in 1980 or so called Teenage Jesus and the Jerks. Some semi-big names were involved -- James Chance and Lydia Lunch come to mind.

Also, an early hardcore band (if I remember right) called Ism. Not so bad, but the frontman went by the name of Jism.

GWAR had a member who called himself Jizmak the Gusher, and there was a hair band performer who called himself Jizzy Pearl. niiiiiiiice.

I remember -ism. (The hyphen was part of the name.) There was an alt-rock program on our local college channel that sometimes played them. TJ&TJ was best known for their name.

While I'm on the topic of extra punctuation marks in band names, about 20 years ago, there was a band in my area called Odlid! (Yes, the exclamation point was part of the band's name.) If you don't get it, spell the band's name backwards. Anyway, what's really weird about THIS band is that some Midwestern Walmarts sold their album - while banning a Goo Goo Dolls album because the cover featured a toddler covered in blackberry jelly, which some people mistook for dried blood.

Huh - a little late to the trough.

Of the seven bands I was in, my first one - Our Testicles Touch the Ground - was probably my most eye-brow-cocking name, I spose. Repulverizer was the most metal-sounding one.

So - because I could easily double all the bandnames mentioned in this thread in both quantity and fucking disgustingness, I'll leave just a smidge of some of the less nastier ones.

Asspatula
Rapeman (actually one of my favourite bands from the 80s - name taken from a Japanese comic)
Splatterea
Nice View (seriously - DO NOT INQUIRE)
Scraping Foetus Off the Wheel
Dismal Marsh Gas
Fallopian Breakdance
Crazy Fucked Up Daily Life
Rectal Smegma
Intestinal Loudness
Jump Back Jesus
Eggs
Putrid Offal (fun to say!)
Assuck

.....some were mentioned here already, but just all the goregrind bands out there, alone, could take up a couple pages here.

Prostitute Disfigurement is the one that always comes to mind when this subject comes up. But really, there's so many death/grind bands with that sort of name that it's hardly shocking these days.

Fun fact: Jizmac is still in Gwar.

Funner fact, my old handle way back in hotail and war craft days was Col. Jizmac.

Well, since it's kind of devolved in to a lovely collection of offensive band names (and some of my favorite bands), I'm gonna add one of my favorites. But it's pretty mild. Ancient Chinese Penis was a band from an eon ago. The name's more humorous if you realize it's a riff on an ancient (even at the time) Calgon commercial

ETA: And wow, almost nothing but strange penis-related suggestions next to that video.
