Ok. Simple question. Do you like the name: Hey Grumpy.
Kind of a moody hard rock sound.
Band sound for reference.
Grumpy by itself would be good, imo.
Good name for a dad band.
Yea, I'm lukewarm on the Hey, but I wouldn't be surprised if Grumpy was already in use somewhere.
Yep... GRUMPY out of Harrisburg PA, currently active with over 1,000 likes on FB.
Hey Grumpy reads like I would expect them to make me laugh, and you guys are "kinda moody hard rock."
I've certainly heard lamer names (*cough* Carseat Headrest *cough*), but if the music is good enough you'll still attract fans and airplay (*cough* Carseat Headrest *cough*)
If the band members are Sneezy, Doc, Dopey, et al, it's fine.
Otherwise, no. Just no.
Hard no. People just don’t associate “Grumpy” with a good time.
Seriously, HAPPY SNEEZY DOC is leagues better.
Sounds like a ‘get off my yard’ kind of thing.
is there a band called Carrots?
The Grumpy Carrots!
That’s not bad! Compels you to visualize it, which goes a long way towards making a name memorable.
No. Doesn't do much for me.
they do if they have a sarcastic sense of humor
Dopey is probably still free
But hey grumpy sounds like something you call your band if you don't swear or take drugs. But you want people to think you might.
The polar opposite of edgy.
Like the song and vibe. But IMO the intro is too long. I’d suggest only doing one repeat of the intro riff before coming in with the vocal.
The “hey” doesn’t work for me. But do play around more with the grumpy meme. I like it!
I'd vote against if it were my band. If you going to include "Grumpy" in your name it needs to be paired with a non-sequitur - Grumpy Carrots actually works for me in general. Maybe not for your genre, but it's a good example of how to make that kind of word work.
Sounds like a bunch of old grandpas.
The name doesn't really do anything for me. Maybe Grumpy Guitar Guys (I know there are other instruments, but at least that gets the alliteration going). Maybe browse through the "Accidental Band Names" post. I always liked "Lasagna Lizard" myself.
Accidental Band Names- what did YOU hear today?
Hey Grumpy, no.
At least not for that music...maybe for something folk-rock, Americana-ish.
How about ... GRUMP!
Edit: just checked and apparently there is a punk band called Grump in Halifax, NS. So I suggest, when the travel restrictions are over, you guys head over there and fight them for the name.
