One of my favorite band names of all time is Yacht Douche. Now, I know this is kind of a stupid name, but that was sort of the point, and it was more than the name that I liked. My girlfriend, her brother, and her best friend had a band called Mega Dong back in the day. They might be what you’d call a “joke band” except really it was more punk rock theater and they were really good and burned the place to the ground wherever they played. Their shtick was that every show had a theme with appropriate costumes and props and sometimes these themes would be them performing as another band. And one night Mega Dong was Yacht Douche. They dressed up as yacht douches and played in front of a blown up photo of JFK on his boat. I find this deliciously obnoxious. He was a yacht douche.
In case no one got it, the next show they were The Kennedy Assassination where they dressed as the Kennedy assassination complete with graphic detail. Since this was in Boston, it did not go over well. The Kennedy Assassination is another great band name. Much better than Dead Kennedys because that’s punk bro “in your face” while The Kennedy Assassination is kind of scary. Besides, in all their years, the Dead Kennedys never came up with anything as good as Yacht Douche.
