Let’s Make a List: Best Tribute Band Names
Normally I hate puns. Yet for some inexplicable reason, I do enjoy a clever turn of phrase when it comes to names of tribute bands.
For example, a recent Q Magazine listed these actual tribute band name:
- Faux Fighters (featuring Dave Growl, Naylor Falkins, Pap Smear, Chris Shitlips and Nate Mansmell)
- Shania Twin
- Pink Fraud
- Maybe Gaga
- Cheap Purple
- And my favourite, Jamirrorquai.
Anyone have anything else to the list?

I had the pleasure of seeing these two bands here in Ottawa almost a decade ago now…

The Practically Hip
I'm trying think of what kind of people would start a Tragically Hip tribute band.
An all female Weezer cover band.
Duran Duran Duran
Hi Alan i glad you like the jamirrorquai everyone thinks
It's pretty clever but tbh nothing else would really do 🙂
I love tribute bands – so many are brilliant, I love it when they put effort into the name too
All female tributes:
Elvana (Elvis fronted Nirvana tribute)
Grand Funked Up or Grand Funkin’ around? Any other suggestions?
