Jimmy Kimmel recently decided to send a reporter to SXSW and ask people what they thought of bands that would be there. Seemingly harmless, right? Unfortunately, the reporter only asked people what they thought about fake bands, using the most ridiculous names possible, and people still had a lot to say about the bands they'd never heard of.

To be fair, that probably has more to do with the fear of being invited for an interview only to admit, "I have no idea what you're talking about" and less to do with the strange band names — because as it is, a lot of the bands we listen to have ridiculous names. Consider: Death Cab for Cutie; Arctic Monkeys; Limp Bizkit; Flaming Lips; Neutral Milk Hotel... the list could go on.

I'm a weird-band-name fan myself — which is why Andy Dwyer's band list (from "Parks and Recreation") is one of my favorite things. So here are 26 very real and very weird band names, from A to Z.

  1. A Cat Born In An Oven Isn't a Cake
  2. Bedwetter
  3. Cindy Brady's Lisp
  4. Devil with Cheese
  5. Elmer Jacobsen and the Emasculated Cockroaches
  6. Flopping Bodybags
  7. Gee That's A Large Beetle I Wonder If It's Poisonous
  8. He's Dead Jim
  9. Inflatable Grandpa
  10. Jehovah's Witness Protection Program
  11. Kamikaze Refrigerators
  12. Large Marge And The Tell 'Em I Sent Ya's
  13. Mel Gibson and the Pants
  14. Not Drowning, Waving
  15. Old Lady Drivers
  16. Paracoccidioidomicosisproctitissarcomucosis
  17. Questionmark and The Mysterians
  18. Radioactive Squirrels
  19. Screaming Broccoli
