    Default Resource: Band Names

    If your clothes don't fit any more (or if you wouldn't be caught dead in them) you give them to charity, right?

    So why would you hoard a good band name you don't need when there are bands starving for them?

    There are tragic examples of this. If John Rzeznik lives to be 120 his obit will say "Goo Goo Doll", all because his band couldn't think up a good name on their own and no one could help them.

    So if you have a band name you don't need that you think is particularly good, bad, funny, ironic, or in some way stands out (or at least doesn't suck) post it here. Your donation can help a nameless band

    I'll start:

    Fracking Jack Gas and the Flaming Faucets

    Never underestimate the amount of contempt a failed musician has for those of us who are still trying.
    If the party's good enough, you can actually suck to a remarkable degree.

    Fair enough.


    How 'bout Moisture instead?


    Or a name for a group of precocious young violin prodigies:

    Johnny and the Kiddie Fiddlers
    .






    Thinking Won't Kill You
    or, alternately:

    Thinking Can Kill You







    (for the legions of mineralogy geeks out there...)

    Amphibole

    Its the name of a large family of inosilicate minerals.

    That is to say, it's a rock group.
