Funny Pics: Band Names Taken Literally

There are a lot of stupid band names out there. In fact almost every band name ever created is kind of stupid if you stop and think about it for a minute. Once you do stop to think about the literal meaning of the name it will change from this cool sounding combination of words to stupid and poorly photoshopped (actually paint.net) mockery of music and art.

Take for example the band Sea Wolf, what the hell is a "sea wolf"? It's obviously a wolf that lives in the sea, just like the picture above. Get it? Good, now here a some more.

Ariel Rosenberg though he would just "own" his girly name and started going by Ariel Pink, but when he hooked up with Haunted Grafitti things got less spooky and more creepy.


After further review and showing this to a couple people it appears that I may have been reaching a little on this one. But it took me a long time to make this so I am going to use it. It's the Almighty Defenders, GET IT? The Saint's O-Line defending QB Jesus? It's sooooo obvious, gosh!

Kristian Matsson is a goddamn lying Swede. He is only like 5'8". There is no place for irony when world records are at stake. Robert Pershing Wadlow was the tallest man on earth... ever. At least in recorded history. He was 8 ft 11.1 when he died at age 22. Come on Kristian, show some respect.

This one is just a picture of Sarah Palin and Jan Brewer together and the band Anal Cunt IMMEDIATELY came to mind. So I guess this one isn't at all literal, or is it...
