    ...my room...
    Well. lately ive been thinking.. The foxy Grandpas aren't just cutting it.. I need another band name... because..now my music is sounding..well just plain out more professional. and my songs actually are emotional. My guitar teacher said today, "your new stuff is really great.. i mean its more professional, there are solos and guitars, the singing is better.. dont take this wrong but i think you need something different from the foxy grandpas" so im gonna ask yall. What do you think i should name it?
    Ill leave it up to you

    PS: mods... sorry i didn't know where to put this one exactilly. but i think off topic is the right place.. as always i could be wrong.. sorry for any problems switching this to another forum if you have to..

    i really dont think any of those names are good... all sound totally unoriginal ;-\ sorry!

    my recomendation is think of something that doesnt sound good... something about your music. you may think sounds 'stupid' something..sorta poetic maybe.....


    the things you think are stupid and wouldnt want anyone to know/hear/see are usually the best things you could create! and be original! if you searched on google with quotes around those names you would get countless results.... maybe not band named but surely lots of results... jus try not to spend to much time thinking on it.... read the above recomendation!


    (btw, i think this would goto into the Misc. forum... its music related so i think it would end up there)

    Let's hear the music, Nick.
     
  6. Insult to Injury is good, but I think it's already taken. Furlage sounds cool, but what the hell does it mean?

    ...my room...
    furlage...im not sure what it means
    i think it means apsolutely nothing though *grin*
    ive had jazz cats /classic rock/older guys from my neihborhood said.. "the foxy grandpas, is the most absurd name for a band, it doesnt make sence, your not old"...
    a few people on talkbass have said something resembling that too.. not that im saying im mad at them or dislike their comment, it was just kinda funny though.
    Insult To Injury, was actually hmm well i think there are several bands.. called insult to injury..wow..
    cause my best friend scott had a band called I2I, and he said i could have the name of the band.
    But then i found another band on the net, i think they are metal..and i found a punk band on mp3.com called insult to injury. HMMMMMMRR
    strange..

    A band name is part of your sound, and part band attitude.

    Try drivin' the car around, that's what I do to get
    Ideas.

    Here are some of my suggestions with the stories behind the names...
    The Unlawful Combatants (a la camp X Ray)
    Carbon14 (an isotope used in carbon dating)
    The Liquidators(the guys who cleaned up Chernobyl)....
    That's all for now...

  16. look around your room, come up with some absurd object in your room, sometimes you can get original names. like:

    popcorn
    the clothespins

    or maybe something more serious, a sound related term:

    resonance
    etc.

    idunno, thats where my band name, DISSONANCE, came from. (i think it's a cool name).
     
  17. how about Johnny Blank and the Blank Blanks?
