Butthole Surfers

How Butthole Surfers got their band name - Surfing in HawaiiAlternative rock band from San Antonio, Texas, renowned for a versatile repertoire presented during chaotic live shows doused with black humour: they play amongst others punk rock, psychedelia, heavy metal, noise rock and electronics.

The initial idea was that the Butthole Surfers would use a different name each time they performed (Ashtray Baby Heads and Nine Foot Worm Makes Home Food were amongst the names considered), but after an overwhelming attendance at a concert that the posters credited to the Butthole Surfers, they kept that name.

That at least is one explanation. Another one is that a dj was off the mark thinking that the song title Butthole Surfers was the group name. The men left it there. See also Pink Spiders.

Active: 1981-present, USA
