This blog post is for any punk or DIY person. It has 12 tweets about the funniest and most creative names that punks have come up with over the years. From “Froggy” to “Zeus,” these hilarious tweet will make you think twice before giving your child a normal name!

“My mom’s friend was going to name her baby ‘Froggy,’ because she felt it would be a good way for kids to remember how much they love frogs.”

“I feel like we should have a show called Punk’d. Except instead of pranks, you just pick really bad names and ask if people want them”

“..And then I had the idea for our punk band the Crotch Rockets.”

“Most parents wouldn’t name their kid after themselves, but my dad named his daughter Jeri Lynn Cooper Hendrix”

“So what kind of bands do punks listen to?” Me: BLANK STARE from me while he waited patiently. My friends called me “Blank Stare” because everyone always thought I was just staring into space.

“It’s okay to be a little self conscious about being the most popular punk in school, but you should try not to wear your name on your shirt.”

This is an example of what we would like: The Crotch Rockets were my favorite band when I was growing up! All their songs are so catchy and fun. Not too mention they’re hilarious with all those totally inappropriate names for themselves that have been taken out of context by people who don’t know them the perfect balance between clever and shocking.

The best song has got to be ‘Cockroach’ it doesn’t matter how many times you hear it, you’re still going to laugh.

I’m not sure if they were really trying to make a statement about the importance of killing cockroaches with that song or something else but I love them for making me feel like an outsider and reminding me just how funny our culture can be sometimes.”

“It’s okay to be a little self conscious about being the most popular punk in school, but you should try not to wear your name on your shirt.” `This is what we’re getting at.

“I was listening to the radio and heard a song by The Crotch Rockets, but I couldn’t tell if it was just some other band with an obscene name or not.” One time we had lunch in the parking lot of our school because someone spray painted our names on all the sidewalks around campus! We were so embarrassed!

“At first glance you might think that they are trying to make fun of punk bands–but then you realize how much their songs mean to them and what they’re willing to do for that dream.” It’s called Punk Names That Mean Something, which speaks volumes about who this artist is as a person. They love music but also have a sense of humor when it comes to themselves and what they do.

“It is so hard for a punk band to come up with an original name because there are only so many words that rhyme with ‘punk’–and we need something catchy.” They’re just like the rest of us! The struggle is real, man.

“I’m not going anywhere until I know who was responsible for this,” she said, pointing at her name on the wall in rage.” + This person has personality written all over them from their DIY approach to life (which hopefully includes taking care of graffiti). We hope you can get your vengeful spree started soon!

What’s even more amazing about these tweets than how great they make us laugh is that most of the people tweeting them are just like us: they work jobs, deal with bosses and roommates and go on dates. They’re regular humans who happen to be into punk music–and it’s a beautiful thing.

“It was so frustrating because I had been thinking about this for weeks but when I finally got my chance, he made me name her after his ex.” + This person may have found themselves in an unfortunate situation where their creativity has been put down by someone else. We hope things get better soon!

“If you can’t come up with your own band name, please don’t steal mine,” said one tweet from @IamStrawberrii_. Fair enough.

“I have the perfect band name, but my friend’s kid just came up with it,” said another tweet from @BrennanZoe_. This is a great way to recycle ideas.

“My dog was barking and I had an idea for a band name.” + We’re not sure what kind of music this would be punk? Metal? Funk rockers?? There are tons of options!

The DIY punk scene often

In recent years, punk has exploded in popularity due to its growing mainstream presence. For those who don’t know what it is, here’s a brief introduction: Punk music is often loud and fast-paced with lyrics that are typically about social problems or political views. It can be traced back to the early 1970s when bands like The Ramones started making waves on stage. These three iconic guys from Queens, New York would go down as one of the most influential punk rock groups out there today. In many ways they were “the first punks”.

The genre takes its name after this group – which was coined by John Holmstrom in his 1976 article for Punk magazine titled ‘Punk Rock’. And while we’re on the topic of naming, let’s talk about punk names. If you’re a fan of this genre and haven’t been called one before (or if you’ve ever considered what your own might be), here are some hilarious tweets to get you started! “My name is Punk Rocker” “I’m Punkin'” “Punk?
