To no surprise to both fans and outsiders of heavy metal, this genre of music gets weird fast. From gratuitous lyrics, offensive merch, and ridiculous band names that will undoubtedly get a variety of satisfying reactions. While there are a countless amount of bands out in the world with the most absurd band names, these ones have to be some of the most out there with their shock value or brutality.
#10: Cattle Decapitation
Starting off with a band that I actually listen to. This deathgrind uses their vegetarian lifestyle to empower their violent lyrics. The name says it all for what you should expect from these guys.
If you are curious, their album The Anthropocene Extinction is a masterpiece.
#9: Cannibal Corpse
Out of the insanely violent names out there, nobody beats these death metal veterans. Cannibal Corpse lives up to their name with their album covers, merch, and horrifying lyrics. They made such an iconic scary name that people who don’t listen to any metal still know who they are because they left a mark on the world.
#8: Cannabis Corpse
A stoner death metal band who played off of Cannibal’s name. While some of these names that are just jokes tend to lean on the dull side, Cannibal Corpse takes the cake for their fun twist on one of death metal’s biggest bands.
#7: Heaven Shall Burn
Metal and religion don’t always go together, and this is a factor in that relationship. Heaven Shall Burn have a shocking name, but they are much more intelligent and philosophical than most groups with titles that go for offending people or making some anti-religious statement. The real meaning is about people not seeing reality, and instead of seeing something false to make themselves feel better, so they want that to burn for the truth to hit those people hard. The message may not have the same weight as the name, it is still effective on both ends of the spectrum.
#6: Dying Fetus
Another group of death metal legends. It sounds funny to write about Dying Fetus while the discussion about abortion rises in the United States, which makes the band’s shock factor pack a harder punch.
#5: Infant Annihilator
Let’s continue to butcher babies with Infant Annihilator. This deathcore band got quite the following on social media due to their first release, The Palpable Leprosy of Pollution. A lot of death metal goes down the offensive and disturbing road, but these guys take the cake since that is their entire goal while putting a more comedic spin on the songs.
#4: Anal Cunt
The comedic grindcore group Anal Cunt does not need a paragraph about their absurd name, they chose Anal Cunt, and we just have to go with it.
#3: Cunt Cuntly
Named after an inside joke between friends, Cunt Cuntly was born into the deathcore scene. Initially they started off as an instrumental band, but later on, hired a vocalist. Having some vocals and lyrics add to their over the top attitude and musical content.
#2: We Butter the Bread with Butter
To take a break from the disgusting and gruesome names, these German metalheads cannot be beaten when it comes to a stupid name like this.
#1: Acidic Vaginal Liquid Explosion Generated By Mass Amounts Of Filthy Fecal Fisting And Sadistic Septic Syphilic Sodomy Inside The Infected Maggot Infested Womb Of A Molested Nun Dying Under The Roof Of A Burning Church While A Priest Watches And Ejaculates In Immense Perverse Pleasure Over His First Fresh Fetus
Abbreviated as Xavlegbmaofffassssitimiwoamndutroabcwapwaeiippohfffx, this band goes towards a similar thought process as Anal Cunt, Cunt Cuntly, and Infant Annihilator by going for the most insanely dumb, yet comedic music while bringing the heaviest material possible. The meme inspired group has songs like Dicks Out for Harambe, so you know what you are in for when you listen to them.
The group has arguably the most illegible name when you see their logo. Show it to anyone and award them if they can read it.
Plenty of insane band names are out in the world. Comment below on some names you have heard about that did not appear on this list.
