    I play in an alt/indie rock cover band in Northern Spain.
    The gig last week was recorded and I went to the singers bar to watch some of it with the kiddies.
    My boy (5) was sitting nodding approving and air drumming.

    Me "Hey Jamie, sounds good?"
    James "yeah........"
    Me "what's wrong?"
    James "the band name, 21 Gramos, I don't like it"
    Me "ok kid, what do you suggest?"
    James (as if playing to the crowd there was a 5 second pause as he thoughtfully looked out at the river) I think you should be called "The Australian Cannibals"


    I have no idea where he pulled that gem from but it made me burst out laughing.
    I will be so disappointed if its just from some funky Spanish/Japanese cartoon.

    Great name - I'd change the band name on the wisdom of the wee man! :)

    That is actually a pretty cool band name. Props to your son.

    There was a Fine Young Cannibals in the '80's....obviously noyt in a 5 year olds lexicon.

    I remember the Fine Young Cannibals very well. (I'm from London) but they have so far passed under his radar.
