I always thought Green Jelly was a #### name for a band... though it does bring back memories of when I was younger.


Why don't you... Sit right back
And I... I may tell you a tale
A tale of three... little pigs
And A Big... Bad... Wolfffffff!!!

Well the first little piggy
Well he was kinda hip
He spent most of his day just a dreamin' of the city
And then one day, he bought a guitar
He moved to Hollywood to become a star
Livin' on the farm he knew nothing of the city
Built his house out of straw, what a pity
And then one day, jammin' on some chords
Along came the wolf knockin' on his door

[Chorus]
Little pig, little pig let me in
(Not by the hair of my chinny, chin chin)
Little pig, little pig let me in
(Not by the hair of my chinny, chin chin)
Well I'm huffin' I'm puffin
I'll blow your house in
Huffin' puffin' blow your house in
Huffin and a puffin and I'll blow your house in!!!

Well the second little piggy
Well he was kinda stoked
He spent most of his time just a ganja smokin'
Huffin and a puffin down on Venice Beach
Gettin' paid money for religious speech
Built his shelter from what he garbage picked
Mostly made up of old cans and sticks
Then one day he was crankin' up a marley
Along came the wolf on his big bad Harley

[Repeat Chorus]

Well the third little piggy
The grade A student
His daddy was a rock star, named Pig Nugent
Earned his Masters Degree from Harvard College
Built his house from his architect knowledge
A tri-level Mansion, Hollywood Hills
Daddy's rock stardom paid for the bills
And then one day came the old house smasher
The big, bad wolf the little piggy slasher!

[Repeat Chorus]

Well the big, bad wolf
Well he huffed and he puffed all that he could
And low and behold the little piggy's house stood
"It's made out of concrete", the little piggy shouted
The wolf just frowned as he pouted
So they called 911 like any piggy would
They sent out Rambooo!
Just as fast as they could

[Rambo]
Yo, wolf face
I'm your worst nightmare
Your ass is mine!

[Gunshots being fired]

Well the wolf fell dead as you can plainly see
And that's to end the story for you and me
If you still give a listen
You just may, hear a big wolf or little piggy say...

Little pig, little pig let me in
(Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin)
Little pig, little pig let me in
(Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin)
Well I'm huffin' I'm puffin'
I'll blow your house in
Huffin' puffin' blow your house in
Huffin' puffin' blow your house in
Huffin' puffin' blow your house in
Huffin' and a puffin' and I'll blow your house in (4x)

And the moral of the story is...
A band with no talent can easily amuse idiots with a stupid puppet show


They ruled!

Anne Rice writes about a "Savage Garden" in "Interview with Vampire".

There a new band out called Arctic Monkeys. I wonder how they came up with that one? I think it's kinda lame.

I have to agree with all of you. Great suggestions! Here's another one I never quite understood....The Beatles. What the heck is that all about? The Beatles? Yucky crawly creatures?

Yet another vote goes to....

Garbage

Insane Clown Posse

My son used to play them constantly. I am so glad that they're "gone". I especially hated one song called "Chicken Hunting".

I think my son just mostly played the cd to annoy me.



:bash:

Yeah...that's a great idea...Let's name our band after something most people step on!!


Here's another one: "Dixie Chicks"...

RE: The Beatles

"beetle" is the insect.

The band name is a play on words/pronunciation:

The BEATles

Kind of clever, I think, and I'm not a big Beatles fan.

Two more votes:

The Presidents of the United States
Bare Naked Ladies

Both as ridiculous as the songs they are "famous" for.

Nice one, Beelzebubba.

Here are a few more:

- Kajagoogoo

- Hayzi Fantayzi

- The Bevis Frond

- Johnny & the Nosebleeds

- Throbbing Gristle

Some of the names posted earlier in the thread are really pretty good.

'The Doors'? Come on! That's one of the standards against which we measure other band names to decide whether they're any good. It's a literary reference -- to Aldous Huxley's famous drug essay The Doors of Perception, whose title refers in turn to a line from The Marriage of Heaven & Hell by William Blake: 'If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is: Infinite.'

'The Meat Puppets' has associations with philosophy (the free will debate), theology (is there a Power that shapes our ends, rough-hew them how we will?) and psychology, quite apart from causing us to speculate what might have happened if Gerry Anderson ever met Gunther von Hagens.

And Blind Melon is a blues pun. As in Blind Lemon Jefferson, y'know.

My whole record collection is filled with what most people would consider horrible band names:

entrails massacre
squash bowels
gore beyond necropsy
melt banana
unholy grave
impaled northern moon forest
fearless iranians from hell
jodie fosters army
john cougar concentration camp
gruesome stuff relish
etc etc etc

I could go on forever with this list.



haha I'm into pretty much all of those bands. I remember getting Impaled Northern Moonforest without even knowing who they were strictly because they had the most ridiculous name!
