Just started playing some shit with some friends but as yet we're nameless.
have a band name that starts with The.
better than plural bands with no The
seem to start with The. Doesn't it annoy you? It's not very original.
but probably what annoys me more is the trend for quirky names where the band avoids the problem of not being able to come up with an original band name by going for something that isn't really a name at all and/or use random punctuation for quirkiness. Can't thing of any examples at the moment but I know who I mean...
I was in a band called "Freddy Foreskin and the Pullbacks"
you can use that
The Mucky Duncans
One Trick Pony
I have a really good one but im keeping it.
So Go Dance About It(optional exclamation mark)
What Monstrous Ecclesiastical designs on the Entire Universe Unfold in the Dying Pope's Brain
(Postcodes is good)
The Queens Bench
She Liked To Dance
or shorten it
or The Beef Curtains...but they've already been used.
and that's pretty good
and then forget them minutes after.
Two I came up with were:
Martin Kemp and the Buy Now Pay 2008s
Burning Army Men
Air Attack Chopper
Planetary Defense Systems
Travelling But Stationary
Generic Routing Encapsulation
Heading For Divorce
Nervous Wave Rider
10,000 statistically grammar-average fake band names:
Try plugging that one on radio
came up with Hexagonal Pensioner.
Calling a Spade a Knife (emo-centric)
Owen Hart vs Bret Hart In A Steel Cage
Black Lung and the Cigarettes
Portal To Entropy
My Arms Don't Work
make sure that you google whatever you come up with. Make sure it's not been taken already and make sure it doesn't match the name of some very common item or random brand name.
Or else go with:
LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT MEEEEEE!
Really Good At Bowling
You Need The Blue Keycard
Killy Killy Wank Wank
The 'optional word' bit is especially handy.
