127.0.0.1 is loopback, it should resolve as localhost or some software won't work, Xorg most notably.

Exactly; you've got a funky setup there... not sure if its a Ubuntu special (they do some odd things) or just messed up.

So what do I do?

Sorry It's Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS
Restore the files from backups you made before you started editing them. Then learn how to change hostname properly.
