I'm sure we came up with some brilliant ones not so long ago...
first and probably only time Eddie Argos and And So I Watch You From Afar get referenced in the Wall Street Journal...
the first paragraph of that is total crap. Firstly - Caligula is a truly terrible name for a band. What a pointless article.
I got good band names that don't exist yet.
"Techno" is a bit off the mark, though...
Over-indulgent selfish mess?
But I've often thought it's getting harder to pick a decent band name and that actually (straightforward) 'decent' band names seem a thing of the past these days anyway... Jones is right - you can come up with 50-odd half-decent names yourself but Google them and unless they're super-quirky they'll be taken somewhere... Too many bands, ha! It's all about 'wacky' and 'quirky' these days...
They do one yearly. Very good.
A few highlights while I have time:
-Deep Throat My Shotgun
-Vagivore (I assume Vagitarian was taken)
-Boner No Boner
-Opposite Of Pants
-Magic Johnson and his Aids
-Betrayed By Sorrow
-German Beef Initiative
-Pipes You See, Pipes You Don't See
What kind of farce is this?
but there isn't.
that Shut Your Eyes And You'll Burst Into Flames was a shit name until I watched one of the Log Lady's creepy video intros to an episode of Twin Peaks series 2 and there it was. Admirably specific reference.
My band is called The ElfinSpectre.
This is untrue.
I have a cd by prostitute disfigurement, it's... not as good as carcass...
I still want to have a band called Pens of Blackness, doom tastic.
and it's a fucking nightmare. Any decent idea I've had has already been taken. The only names we've been able to come up that are "available" with are dumb comedy names. I guess we'll end up with one of them.
It's got to the stage where unless the band that already has the name has properly released records or has more than 5000 friends on myspace we don't count them (cause there's loads of pages for bands that set it up, put 1 track up and never did anything ever again).
amazingly it still hasn't been taken.
that said, I don't have any better ideas.
Last few results include:
Diamond Point, Washington
Kadokawa Group Holdings
Stoopnagle and Budd
Zielony Gaj, Sokó?ka County
List of islands of the British Isles
Choo Choo Ch'Boogie
Please call your band Stoopnagle and Budd.
didn't really produce anything that was good but not taken.
We almost agreed on a name last week, but while "Dr Vampire" seemed hilarious in the pub, the morning after it was considerably less funny. And no-one else liked it.
finally jumped the shark.
Gorky's Zygotic Mynki (sp?), We Have Band and !!! duly noted.
All these band names are pretty ace:
