'the yeasty girls' v. 'accidental goat sodomy': another fun moment in blogging

Once again, a reader comes up with a good idea.

Mike Messina writes that he and his drunken friends (is their any other kind?) were sitting around, talking about the worst band name ever. He thought this would make a good post, and he's right.

The ones he came up with - and they have to be real bands - were "Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band" and "Polka Joe and the Stereo Sounds."

I need proof. A link on All Music Guide, their own website, an album listing on Amazon, anything that proves the band really does exist. So get started, worst band name ever.
I'll come up with my own later and I will also have a poll to determine the top three films in the cult movie post from this week.

Have fun - I'm going to watch the rest of the ugliest Yankee game of the year.

Thanks, Mike!


Limp Bizkit. I'm sorry. I like their music, but that name just has to go.

Trout Fishing In America

got one...(actually good group)
Butthole Surfers "Rembrandt Pussyhorse" $11.99

This was a real band in Chicago during the late 80's.

Abortion, Chunky Style

- Flourescent Placenta (a side project of Vic Chesnutt in the early 90's)

- Beast Penis (a trio of Athens student-newspaper geek/punksters, late 80's/early 90's)

- The Divine Church of the Naked Barbie (probably a one-off act, but we saw them Christmas night 1991 at the Masquerade in Atlanta)

I'd vote for Butthole Surfers, but someone already beat me to it... Other candidates:

- The Afghan Whigs
- The Flaming Lips
- The Circle Jerks

They're all at AllMusic.com...

I was never too fond of the name The Screeching Weasels.

Stark Naked and the Car Thieves?

No, really.

Mentioned in Rolling Stone review here:

Album (used) for sale here:

The Day-Glo Abortions. http://www.godrecords.com/dayglos/

Roid Rogers and the Whirling Butt Cherries.

There's a list of these, you know.

I've got two:

Sheep on Drugs
Kevorkian Death Cycle

I saw them both open for Pig (KMFDM) in '97.

hey, i love the yeastie girls! "you suck" has to be one of the best post-feminism songs ever written.

having said that: the flaming cocks? and you will know us by the trail of dead?

Hey, I like most of the bands mentioned so far! Heh.
The Yeastie Girls' "Ovary Action" EP is classic.

The Excuses were just a local bar band, so I can't document their existence, and my son was lying to the Nevada State Trooper when he said that the DEA patch on his jacket was for a Chicago punk band. So I guess I have no contribution.

Sandpaper Sally and the Bleeding Penis.

Anal Cunt is one of the worst I can think of. I never have heard any of their music, but something tells me I wouldn't really want to.

I think those involving human (or non-human) orifices are in their own league. May I suggest a separate category for bands not using such? The sixties were full of them, mostly drug-induced:

Moby Grape
Strawberry Alarm Clock
? and the Mysterians
Spooky Tooth

No doubt there are more modern ones. I don't know, maybe I'm just old fashioned.

Vaginal Discharge. They are a local duo in Joplin Missouri. Funny as hell; if you guys think its competitive I'll gather evidence.

Nevermind. Found it.


The other band on the ablum might be a contender as well.

I grew up in a very racially mixed town. In High School I was in a band. We decided to cal ourselves the Black Angels. Only problem is, we were all white...

Well we thought it was clever at the time...

our ship's band was called The Pus-Ridden Anal Sores.

Here's two, not because the names are very bad. They're just a couple of ad editing nightmares:

Birdsongs of the Mesozoic

Sic Fucks, who were commonly called the Sic F*cks in ads in the local NY press. Even the Village Voice edited the name.

Chrissie Hynde and Pete Shelley from the Buzzcocks had a band around 1978 that went by the name of...

Mike Hunt's Honourable Disharge.

They never recorded anything unfortunately.

A school friend of mine was in a band called Captain Colostomy when I was about 15. This was back in 1997 and I recall they had a guitar, a child's Casio keyboard and a mandolin [there may also have been an ocarina involved].

Alas, they too never recorded anything.

The Electric Prunes

Squirrel Nut Zippers (named after the candy)

Izzy Stradlin and the Ju Ju Hounds. Stradlin used to be with Guns 'n Roses.

Rainbow Butt Monkeys

Dick Delicious and the Tasty Testicles

Lubricated Goat

The Flopping Body Bags

Aw, man, Trish took mine - my wife has seen Dick Delicious et al. perform, in Atlanta in the 80s.

I' m just laughing my ass off at this whole thread, though - "Accidental Goat Sodomy"?!

Of course there's
Peter and the Test Tube Babies
Dying Fetus
Scrotum Grinder
(all appear on www.cddb.com)

Teachers in Space (a punk band, late 80s)

Their album cover was a photo of the Challenger explosion.

I just thought of two more:

The Revolting Cocks -- a Ministry/Front 242 hybrid.

Doug Clark and the Hot Nuts -- Remember Otis Day and the Knights from Animal House? Legend is they were based on this band. These guys actually recorded a single called "Baby, Let Me Bang Your Box". What's worse...I have a copy.

Dead Milkmen

I just had to check, I actually saw in concert (by accident) Rainbow Butt Monkeys. They were on a ticket with (of all tings, Bon Jovi) and I thought it was a joke. Well, actually it was.

here is a scarry one...."Hilliary for President"


Wow, nobody's mentioned any Jim Thirwell projects yet. Let's see...

Foetus Over Frisco
Foetus Under Glass
Foetus Interruptus
Scraping Foetus Off the Wheel
You've Got Foetus On Your Breath

Also, I think Delerium should get a special mention; an okay name, except for the fact that it's misspelled.

Wipe Me Mommy

A side project of dB's drummer Will Rigby back in the 80s

Hey ! I remember Sic Fucks,I saw them with the Plasmatics. Cocktallica is a real band.

"Sticky Loveseat"

They made the rounds of San Jose bars a couple of years ago.

The only rude thing about them was their name - they mostly just covered mainstream '80s bands.

Alex, your wife paid to see Dick Delicious??? LOLOL I know what you mean about Accidental Goat Sodomy. Did someone trip and fall headfirst into a goat? (pun intended)

The Holy Modal Rounders. Late sixties/early seventies.




Does nobody here remember Killer Pussy or their hit song "Teenage Enema Nurses In Bondage"?
