Earlier this week, we posted our list of the 13 dumbest band names in rock history. Needless to say, our (good-natured) shots at Dave Matthews Band and the Beatles upset more than a few people. Fans of Hoobstank, Panic! At the Disco and Natalie Portman's Shaved Head all took the jab with a little more humor.

Now it's your turn: What do you think is the dumbest band name in rock history? We aren't talking about music quality here. Many amazing acts have stupid names, and many awful bands have cool names. Vote for whatever band you want, but please only vote once and for a single group.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
