    There was punk band back in the '80s called "The Very Idea Of effing Hitler" except they didn't use "effing".

    I let out a hearty guffaw when I saw that name in the Phoenix New Times. :facepalm

    Decidedly less rude than many here, but I still think Haircut One Hundred was a stupid band name.

    There was a band called Homo Picnic back in the 1980s.

    I used them as a punch line so many times in the late 80s that I would be remiss to not own their LP.

    I was asked to audition for a local band called "Contra Blues Band". I said send me a setlist. NOT ONE BLUES TUNE on it...
    I asked why have blues in the name of the band if you don't play any?
    I was told "Because "contra" means opposite. We are the opposite of a blues band!"

    true story.

    The definition of stroppy is a British slang term used to describe someone who is hard to deal with, or who is easily offended. An example of someone who would be described as stroppy is a rowdy soccer fan who can't be controlled and who is yelling and shouting and being somewhat rude.

    Not a bad bad band name itself: in middle English, the word "quaint" ( then spelled queynte) was a euphemistic subsitution for the word c**t.

    Just sayin'
