The Ten Most Badass Band Names in DFW

The best band names play upon the pop cultural lexicon, using reference to convey attitude or sound. The best ones do so subtly or unexpectedly, turning injustices or misconceptions in on themselves. I've gathered the 10 most intriguing and kick-ass of the rowdy and reckless DFW band names as an excuse to talk about the bands we love and what their names mean to me.


10. Bitch Teeth: I'm thinking of that scene in American History X, when Ed Norton stomps that guys head into the curb. Wait, what's wrong with me? Well, that guy lost his teeth and Edward Furlong was kind of a little bitch in that movie, so I guess it somehow makes sense.
Start here: "Hey Asshole"


9. The Atomic Tanlines: In their world: We trade nukes, everything's blown to shit and only the roaches survive. Well, them and a few bikini-clad babes riding around on Harleys, toting guns and sporting the sickest tan lines in the apocalypse.
Start here: "Skank Around"


8. Terminator 2: We're about to go back to the what? Ninties! So many beefcakes in that movie: Arnie, T-1OOO, Linda Hamilton. This is all about ball-busting exploding metal and that weird time you had sex with your best friend after too much box wine.
Start with: "Methodic and Serpentine"


7. Bukkake Moms: Really? Do not Google.
Start with: "Not Your Boner Bro"


6. Sealion: Such an underrated animal the sea lion is. I've always imagined the name was a thinly veiled reference to a girl, or a type of girl, that one of the members can't shake. Plus, listening to this band always reminds me of campy skits at the waterpark involving mischievous otters and sardonic walruses. It also makes me think of Jesscia Alba in Flipper.
Start with: "Vails"

None of them have anything on the Butthole Surfers.

Ugly Mustard, Drowning Pool, Rivethead, The Razorblade Dolls, The Deathray Davies, Rigor Mortis, etc. Most of these have better names than the ones on this list.

This just proves the hopelessness of the Dallas music scene.

Brutal Juice formed in 1991, OJ killed his wife in 1994. The name is actually from an old Hertz commercial featuring OJ. Five seconds of research would have saved you this embarrassment.

I guess I am an old man now, but "Tripping Daisy" and "The Toadies" were pretty awesome names back in the day. But alas, I guess if a band's name with the reference of ejaculating all over a woman's face rocks your face off, cheers!

before nominations role in for the Butthole Surfers, I would go back to the 70's and nominate Vomit Pigs as the best regional band name of all time.

@garlandsucks wow.. Your description of my girlfriend was on point. Are you still mad you fucking loser?... Ahahaha I know for a fact that you wouldn't have the balls to tell this writer or any of those bands that they suck. if you haven't read the title of the article it's about the band name, not the music they produce.. If ignorance is bliss then you must be in fucking euphoria.
