Stupid Band Names:

  • Travis is a man's name, so 9 out of 10 people who've never heard of this group before, would probably think it's a solo male artist. But this music act is a group... of all men, none of whom are even named Travis. Submitted by: Cheese

If it was raining in a submarine, I'd get quiet scared, because it would me there would be holes, and the sub could sink.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Side"
The Funny Lyrics:
The grass is always greener on teh other side,
neighbors got a new car that you wanna drive,
and your time is running out you wanna stay alive,
we all live under the same sky,
we all will live we all will die,
there is no wrong, there is no right,
the circle only has one side
Why They're Funny:
Can they use any more Famous Quotes to make the song? But dont get me wrong, I think this is a great song!
Submitted by: Mike FLorio
 

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"'Side'; 'Driftwood'"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
'Side, side, side'
'Pieces, pieces, pieces'
Why They're Repetitive:
Further to that which has already been said, there's also 'side' and 'driftwood'.. think the PC term is lyrically challenged..
Submitted by: ScarletSky
"Turn"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Turn, turn, turn...
Sing, sing, sing...
Why They're Repetitive:
Travis is the most God-awful band in existence. It began with 'Turn' from 'The Man Who...' and it continues into their latest album, 'Invisible Band'. Why the lead singer must sing one syllable words over and over and over again in the chorus of his songs is beyond me. Not only is the band terribly annoying and difficult to listen to, their songs are lyrically subpar.
Submitted by: Bryan McNeely

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Last Train"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
This could be the last train
Why They're Nonsensical:
You mean there aren't any more trains after this one? Ever? Perhaps you should've been more specific.
Submitted by: sonikal
"Why Does It Always Rain On Me"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Why does it always rain on me
Is it because I lied when I was seventeen
Why They're Nonsensical:
It isn't very likely to rain on someone just because they once lied. It's more likely to rain on someone because they haven't got an umbrella!
Submitted by: Fred

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Flowers In The Window"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Oh now, look at us now
Flowers in the window, and I love you so
Let's watch the flowers grow
Why They're Insincere:
Surely if he 'loves her so' he can be bothered to take her to a movie or for a nice meal rather than looking at some flowers.
Submitted by: Fletch
 

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Flowers in The Window"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
It's such a lovely day,
And I hope you feel the same...
Why They're Misrhymed:
Now, I love the band and their music, but 'day' and 'same' cannot possibly rhyme outside the imagination of a resident at the local hoem for the Terminally Confused.
Submitted by: Colonel Fegbarré
"Baby One More Time"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Girl you got me blind here
But it's not the way I planned
Why They're Misrhymed:
I just got done reading the post about the Britney Spears version; Travis doesn't even attempt to rhyme the lines. I personally think it's a better version of the song, though. Very different from Britney's.

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Tied to the 90's"
The Dated Lyrics:
We're tied to the 90's
In the middle
Why They're Dated:
We're not tied to the middle of 1990s anymore.
