I appreciate your comments but I feel this topic has not been sufficiently done to death. (see posting #1).
You mentioned humor of this type was au courant for the 1990’s and has since fallen out of favor. Heck, Steve Allen was doing this in the 1960’s !!! (inventing names such as Communist Tugboat and so on). When I latch on to a trend, it’s ancient !!
Yes, hard as it is for these “kids today” to accept, weird band names were not the exclusive domain of 1990’s bands.
Some bands dating back as far as the 1960’s had names such as the Strawberry Alarm Clock, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Grand Funk Railroad, Shocking Blue, Frijid Pink, Fever Tree, Spooky Tooth, etc.
No, I think there will never be an end to whacky band names. (God willing).
Sure, some bands will try to adopt traditional appelations, but the public will realize such bands are only swimming in their own cesspool of smug, supercillious hypocrisy and will then be exposed for the pretentious posers they truly are. (Wow - there’s gotta be a good band name in there someplace. )
(… and I hope no one takes that last paragraph seriously).
