    I'm just another high schooler tryin' to start a kick ass band here. We have decent guitarists and I'm obviously the bassist. We still need a drummer and we need a NAME! I was thinking....Gyser....I dunno. A name for a band that plays Black Sabbath, Van Halen, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden.
    Help would be good

    Thank You.

    Jazzin' ...Bluesin' and Funkin'

    Use two words, first one should have one syllable, and the second should have two. Eh?

    Google for some on-line "band name generators" (there are lots of them). Maybe they aren't capable of giving you one decent name but they sure push some ideas out of your brain (it did work once upon a time for me).

    a couple from a name generator that I liked but my bandmates didn't pick:

    Throat Rocket
    Shaved Box Brigade

    We ended up going with 'Metal Daze', it's an 80s metal cover band so I guess it's appropriate.

    two others that we almost used:

    Cereal Killers
    Johnny Wad

    For that style of music, and the crowd it will attract, you need to remember one thing....

    Pick a name that is easy to say when someone is drunk. Gyser would work for that. Nice choice dood.

    Something including "goat" or "wolf" should work, just make sure it's not already taken. And preferably make it absurd enough to be catchy... Goatstorm, Swamp Goat, Burning Goat, Steamgoat (OK, that's probably too stupid for high school... wait till you're an immature 30-year-old like me). Gyser isn't bad, though.

    I dunno... Gyser just doesn't do it for me. Reminds me of "geyser" or "geezer" (good reference to Black Sabbath, though!). Now if you were called Filthy Old Geezers, that I could accpet. ;)
