I have a long list of good names just waiting to be used someday.  But I'm not gonna give 'em up here!



Me too Wink  (I've got a list of about sixty, that I suggest to bands that I record that have lousy names)

The best band name of all was already used long ago.



Big Sitar !  (oops - typo - but it was so funny I thought it had better stay... LOL)

It's not easy . . . and when you self-impose restrictions that keep you from trying to be "funny" or "socially relevant", it gets that much more difficult.

I hereby donate the following two band names that I came up with on a cruise ship:

The Rising Tides
The Silver Seas


Good luck!

That is GREAT!!!

But it would be the most misquoted and misspelled name in a long time....

I'm sorry to say this, but pretty much any modern band whose name starts with "The" is bound to suck so stay away from those names.  

The Darkness, The White Stripes, The Hives, The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Trumpets, The Strumpets....etc.  

I'm naming my band The Squirts and we are going to do death metal versions of kids songs.  That'll turn my theory around really quick.

The Rising Tides



pretty cool, but awfully close to a sunny day real estate album title... speaking of weird band names.

I disagree.  I think the odds of being a good band are virtually nil if you don't have "The" as the first word in the title.

(Attention all you Led Zeppelin & Pink Floyd fans, among others:  I said virtually nil, not absolutely nil.)

i was in a crazy prog band for a brief time that had a horrible time picking a name.

one of the guitar players threw out "pooty tang" as an honest suggestion.

after we all laughed til our faces hurt we looked up and he wasn't laughing.....................

When I was 13 a friend of mine wanted to name our garage band "Michael W and the lard-assed bitches".  His name was Mike...I guess we were the bitches.
