    Naming the new band. It's Doomy Blues that we do for fun so we are looking for a name that is both ridiculous and bada$$.

    The two we have settled on are:

    Righteous Cowboy Lightning

    And

    Inland Shark Attack

    So, what'll it be?

    ISA! Variation of an earlier name suggestion: Shark Infested Custard. Other well-known seafood inspired bands:

    Blue Oyster Cult
    Hot Tuna
    Phish
    Salmon Dave

    Riis

    There's a fine line between ridiculous, and ridiculous!

    Cowboys is the lesser of the duds imo.

    I don't like either of them.
    The first thought that came to my head when I read "Righteous Cowboy Lightning" was Brokeback Mountain, and I've never even seen the movie.
    When I read "Inland Shark Attack" it reminded me of the movie Sharknado.

    Despite the fact that you don't like either of them I like that they both remind you of stuff.

    Would have been cool if you could have at least chose the one you didn't like the least though. I didn't put "neither" on the poll on purpose.

    Definitely the shark one. The cowboy thing is too Brokeback mountainesque.

    Can anyone elaborate on why the word "Cowboy" automatically makes people think of a once slightly controversial movie about homosexual ranch hands? I'm from a community where farming and agri-business is a huge industry (and we have actual cowboys and cowgirls here) so the cowboy thing seemed like it fit. The actual line "Righteous Cowboy Lightning" is lifted from an episode of 30 Rock where they try to create a title that is as "awesome and appealing to Americans" as possible. Is the Brokeback Mountain connection just something you think of whenever you hear/see the word "cowboy" or is it the whole thing together?

    Righteous Cowboy Attack. Much scarier than sharks.

    It's a city guy thing I believe. Between that movie and the Village People the cowboy thing is considered funny.

    I'm from Kansas and I agree that real cowboys are bad ass but if you are putting it in the name of your rock band it losses something.

    Just my silly opinion of course.

    Nope, but if we are going to start debating the "goodness" or "badness" of band names your welcome to PM me and we can discuss my poll options along with what I'm assuming is your bands name in the soundcloud link you have there.

    Seriously dudes, if you don't like either of them that's fine but I don't need anyone to post that they both suck. We have settled on two so either throw in your vote or keep walking.

    If you can't be the Wild Mountain Lawnmowers, then Inland Shark Attack is great.

    Do I have to? :D

    FWIW: I really don't like either name.

    EDIT:
    Oops, I just read this - sorry. Good luck and best wishes.

    Cheers,
    Joe
