In the 60s we had a bluegrass band in New Zealand called "Eloitious (sp?)Fingerpicks, and the Aristocratic Skillet-Lickers - with Fiddling Mother Colleen". Having spent hours practicing getting my tongue round the title, I got up on stage, and announced them - only to be told "We've just changed our name to 'Hamilton County Bluegrass Band
'!". Aaargghh...

I think the most brilliant band name of all time was "The Rolling Stones". You can't come up with a better one than that.

As for "The Beatles", that was a bit silly sounding, but it didn't matter, cos the band itself was superb.

And then there's "The Band". Now THAT's a masterpiece of literal simplicity, if ever there was one.

As for funny/ridiculous/gross band names, how about: Bunchafuckingoofs, Cardboard Brains, Dead Kennedys, Nazi Dog and the Viletones, the Fugs, Limp Biscuit, the Swollen Members, the Slits, and Stark Naked and the Fleshtones.

"Stones" began their career about 1962, Dylan's (great) record was 1965(or 6?).

1965 is right for the Dylan song. Then the magazine Rolling Stone took its name from (most likely) the Dylan song. As to why Dylan used the phrase "like a rolling stone" in his song...just because it sounded right, I imagine, rather than that it had anything to do with Mick Jagger and the boys. In more recent times, Mick and the boys recorded the Dylan song on a live album, and did it well too.

Too bad Barry Manilow never had a band name for his sidemen. Hey, let's think up one! Someone start a thread to do that, please. I have to go to bed NOW.

Once played in a band named (by fans!) Frankie And The Penetrators. Lousy, usually drunk, rock cover band, and it was a low point in our collectively mediocre music careers.

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band
Mothers of Invention
Flaming Groovies

Crowbar

Lord Invader and the Penetrators was the origional calypso group. Late 1940"s if you can beleive it. Kingston Trio, bane of Folk progressives, spread "The Zombie Jamboree" far and wide. May their tribe increase.

Deckman (Bob) might like 'Sweaty Nipples', but for groups who really 'get down to basics' you'd have to go a long way to beat '10cc' & 'The Loving Spoonful', both of which (apparently) refer to the average quantity of male ejaculata during sex

As a youth, I fantasised about calling my first proper band "The Same".

Our debut album would be entitled "The Same to You!", quickly followed by "Same Again", and then "More of the Same". After a period of rest and re-asssement, and some changes in the line-up, we'd release "Same Difference".

Disappointed by critical hostility and lukewarm audience reaction, the new band would disperse for about ten years, before re-forming once more to cash in on the nostalgia market with "The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same". Then we'd do a lucrative farewell tour and disband for good.

Well, it never happened, and now it never will. If anyone wants to borrow the idea, they're welcome.


Wassail!

I'm not saying I'm right (I'm married so I'm always Wrong!). It's just that I'd never heard that and I can't imagine Kieth and Mick ever listening to the Kingston Trio!

But I don't know them I just can't see it! I know that they loved the blues and the Muddy Waters thing makes more sence.

Thanks for answering. This could be a fun place.

It was their first record. Red cover. Not sure, my turntable is defunct.

I bought "Live at Newport" last year. First-time release of 1959 concert. Atleast it shows how well they could connect with their audience.

Not to beat a dead horse, but if memory serves me
Muddy Waters recorded "Rolling Stone" or "I'm A Rolling
Stone" in the early 50's. Pre-Elvis 50's.

The Stones were enamored with the whole blues sound; they covered
a lot of blues material on the early albums, and named one of those albums after Chess Records' address in Chicago. Maybe recorded
some of it there. I'm sure it's on a web site somewhere.
