6. Butthole Surfers
You have to give the band some credit: The announcer of their first paid show forgot their name and used the title of their song, “Butthole Surfers.” It stuck, and though it’s pretty terrible, it’s also pretty hilarious — and totally fits their personality.
12. Diarrhea Planet
While the name “Diarrhea Planet” might conjure up some unpleasant images, it does give you a sense of the poop-joke Blink-182 breed of pop-punk comedy present in their music, which is maybe the only semi-positive thing you can say about a name like this.
15. Pissed Jeans
The three instances when someone urinates in their clothes are the following: A) He or she is, like, 3. B) He or she is frightened. C) He or she is drunk and can’t make it to the bathroom. Totally outrageous and totally befitting this balls-out grunge band.
21. Letters to Cleo
The name is a reference to the lead vocalist’s childhood pen pal, which gives it about one thousand “awwww” points, but doesn’t do very much in the way of “cool.” They make up for it with their amazing brand of alt-rock, and their music makes appearances in Sabrina the Teenage Witch and The Craft.
