    My friend Chewie's band is debating between a few different names, and I thought I would get your opinions on them so I can relay them to him. They are apparently kind of an avant-garde metal fusion, that sometimes goes into a space rock mode. At least that's the way he described it to me. anyway, here are the names...personally I don't like any of the names, but they're the ones he chose.

    Of those choices, Green Monkey Showdown, definitely.

    If those are the only possibilities I guess they have to go with Green Monkey Showdown.
  5. Given the genres, I wonder if changing the word ordering to something less straightforward might also work: Showdown Monkey Green, or Monkey Showdown Green. That last one sounds like an anime title.

    Fist Puppet immediately made me grin - and it's the only one I'm certain I'd remember.

    Elfcoat is positively terrible, thus, I voted for it. The adult card game, Cards Against Humanity has a card that says, Elf *semen*, though it uses the slang term instead. That's immediately what came to mind.

    I've just been inspired....

    Your guy's name is Chewie?
    Playing space rock...whatever that is?

    There is no other right answer but ...'Chewie and The Backers'.

    I also know a place they can buy furry suits.

    You're very welcome.

    I think the idea is to scream as loud as you can, but since you're in space, no one can hear you, anyways... it's like a vacuum... and there's lots of space.

    Name the band after Chewbacca's home planet.
    It sounds way more avant garde metal fusion that the suggested ones.
