Original band name?

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by BassWindu711, Feb 19, 2013.


  1. My band can't decide on a name and our first gig is less than a month away. Any original ideas? We play modern and classic rock.

    it really is true, almost every name you will initially think of will be taken. Just brainstorm a tonna cool ideas and use the best one that isn't taken. google the name with "band" or "tour dates" behind it to see if it's taken. Spoiler: it will be. But unless it's on itunes or under a major record label, it doesn't really matter. Heck, even my name, Push Button Four, was taken, but it was by some failing ska band from the early 2000s with like 200 views so it doesn't matter

    Switching the letters in the names of famous people seems like a popular trend right now (Bustin Jieber, Cleric Apton).

    P.S. There's a name. :D

  13. Try something like
    http://www.bandnamemaker.com/
    (Other random band name generators are also available)

    Some results are good; I rather like -
    Balanced For Uranium
    Some are a bit more rubbish -
    Drastic Shutup And The Intense Anywhere
    ...or maybe not.

    Also useful for generating lyric ideas and song titles.

  15. Just take some random words from a language like Greenland - no one will know what t mean so you can be radical.
     
  16. Or Norwegian Sami language, or Canadian Inuit. etc etc Mongolian....
     
  17. We did the same thing - trying to think up a new name. After a couple of beer we got stuck - we couldn't get past 'Hide the Sausage'

    I've come across far worse and it will just limit who and where you can work.
     
  18. Ha ha ha!!

    You're not actually taking any of this seriously are you??
