We see a lot of band names here at The A.V. Club. Late last year, I started keeping a list of the worst ones I saw, which I eventually spun off into the best-worst ones. In our "best of 2005" issue, I listed the ones I felt really stuck out.

I've kept the list going continuously since then. Seeing as how we're nearly halfway through the year at this point, I thought I'd share some of the worst and best-worst ones I've encountered so far this year. And there are some really bad ones out there. Please, for the children's sake, don't use the word "funk" in your band name. Please.
