hi Gena, thanks for your input (again)... I have all these except for Soup Dragons and Band of Houses... these I will add to the list. Thanks!

I need Squirrel band names, Beaver (except for John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band), Weasels (except for Screeching Weasel), Giraffes, Hippopotomus, Possums and Porcupine (except for Porcupine Tree.) Of course, any animal (fish, etc.) bands are acceptable and most welcome as long as they are authentic and not a fictional band name.

Wow! GReat adds Gena. Thanks so much for this TON of animal band names. I can really use most all of these. You rock!

As a HUGE "Brady Bunch" fan, I've always found the band name Eve's Plumb quite amusing.

Yes, north CA, we are fairly close! Those are some doozies alright, lol! Love the reference to star trek, Hes Dead Jim. Dicky Retardo is very clever! Quite a list you've got going here.;)

Thanks, Jules. There are lots of sites on the Internet to pick up band names, but very few that list only "weird or funny" ones. That's why I started this thread. I always got a kick out of zany band names... the clever/funny ones in particular. Since these discussions attract people from all over the country, I look for local groups with crazy names to show up.
