Another help me name my band thread (with free names for you!)

    Hey bass buds -

    So, I just joined a bar band that was called "The Dizzy Edge" before I came around. They want to get a fresh start with me and change the name. We do covers that tend to be mostly 90s alternative but we go as far back as a few 70s tunes, a bunch of 80s poprock tunes and all the way up to Killers, Muse and a few other current bands. It's a five piece band and we are all in our early/mid 40s.

    Names that we have killed (that I liked - and are yours now if you want them):
    Crash the Net
    Odd Man Rush (two of us play hockey ... as you can tell)
    Calvin's Brain
    Tracer Fire
    Insect Politics

    I am at a loss and don't feel like being a d-bag about any of the names but some have sucked. Drama in a cover band when you have a day job is no fun.

    Anyway, any good name recos would be appreciated. I am thinking remiscent of 90s alt names or 90s references.
