Take My Band Name... Please!

Postby Frank Decent on Fri Nov 30, 2012 2:01 am

I looked, but couldn't find a general purpose thread for band name ideas. I know there are threads for debating about certain names, etc. But, this would be a thread to throw all the band name ideas you've had that you are NOT going to use, for whatever damn reason.
You like it, but no one else does. You like it, but you don't see yourself in a band any time soon, etc.
So, be generous! Dump your band name ideas here! People can claim 'em.
I will happily accept a kerbling, though I did do several goddamn google searches, too.

Here's my first couple that I've never been able to use. Take 'em, they're free!

yeah, there would have to be some serious junk in the trunk to pull off that name, but Uncle Daddy could be legit plus with enough swagger.

Do yourself a favor, and DON'T click on the player.


I'm on my way out and don't have time to do the proper research, but there is indeed at least one thread about band names, with miles of gold within. One of them resulted in Police Teeth, and I think another in Death Dream. Then there's the "bands you don't want to see" which became basically "hilarious band names we made up" and there's got to be another thread or two. But I guess only the old-timers would remember...

Whenever someone starts one of these threads or asks me in person what to name their band I always suggest Secret Muslims but nobody ever uses it. One of these days I'm going to convince someone to use that band name.

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=12528&hilit=+Punch+you+face+me+

Yes I found it by searching for "Punch You Face Me"

Oh wait that's just the championship. Here's the thread that got it all started and had all if everybody's suggestions.

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=12079&hilit=Punch+you+face+me

Edit again to add, here's an even better one, the thread where people kept posting band names after being eliminated from the main tournament thread

There's a lot of gold in Judith Kranz book titles. I would see a band called Princess Daisy.

(as forum member Boombats mentioned, there are hundreds of band names spread within several different band name threads on this forum - it'd be worth trying to track them down)

Band name thread.

Band name thread.

Fucking epic band name thread, that stemmed from an earlier band name thread, which I think spawned a different band name thread. I'm going to lie down.

The most memorable band name for me personally, from all those band names, was one of Rimbaud III's contributions: "The Queen Is Dad."
