    This doesn't belong in the Basses forum, it should be in off topic.

    That's why it's good to read the forums first, to avoid embarrassments such as these.

    People who show some interest usually get better answers.

    didn't poogaboy have the thread titled something along the lines of

    "les post random stuff!"?

    Why did you close that thread blackbird... I had so much to say :bawl:

    but....I think "Butthole Surfers" is a brilliant name. My band is called "Tuna of the Land"......does that name suck, or what? :hyper:

    Other names I think are cool, but that the guy who started this thread might not think are cool:

    Throbbing Gristle
    Dayglow Abortions
    Southern Culture on the Skids
    The Stooges
    Violent Femmes
    Minor Threat
    Brian Jonestown Massacre
    The Mothers of Invention
    Peter and the Test Tube Babies
    The Dictators
    Dead Kennedys
    The Stranglers
    The Cramps
    Rudimentary Peni

    .......hell, I could go on with this for a week
     
  16. How about those spandex rock groups:

    RATT (just plain stupid)
    Poison (stupider)
    Slaughter (bad name, bad band)
    White Lion (why????)
    Guns and Roses (why not "knives and tulips"??? :D )


    How about some of those earlier bands:

    The Who (why?)
    The Animals (why not "the plants"? :D )
    The Jefferson Airplane (why not the "Washington Helicopter" ?)
    Hot Tuna (why not "Cold Trout"?)
    The Band (now THAT'S original :rolleyes: )

    Yes, it does. We have categorized forums for a reason. Makes it much easier to find things, using the Search option.

    I didn't, perhaps you should take it up with the Misc moderators, via PM, rather than questioning their decision in a public forum.

    embellisher is right.

    Hateater, your posts were not deleted. I felt that a "good band name" thread was a good idea, so I split this thread in two so that both could evolve independently. You can find your posts here.

    As always, you can PM me if you have questions, etc.
