You know... That's a WEIRD Band Name.

I was going over the April 2009 issue of INsite Magazine and realized we have stories on ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, Mike Truth and the Replacement Killers, as well as Los Lobos. I'll admit, Los Lobos isn't that strange, but the other two could be considered out there...

Anyhow, I thought... I wonder if anyone had a good list of weird band names out there. So... being the master of Google that I am, I looked it up.

Seems there's been a site since the mid-1990s called the Canonical List of Weird Band Names. As of my visit, they had 1,517 names on the list.

I won't put the entire list up... but I'll sample one band a letter through the alphabet.
See the whole thing at their site. I've chosen bands that have links tho their sites. Neat.

Carnage Asada! That's priceless, though I'm betting most people outside the Southwest don't get it. Or pronounce it correctly.
