    Me and my mates have recently got together to form a rock/punk band but we have a slight problem, we have no name.

    Hopefully this is where you could come in. I would really appreciate it if you guys could come up with some random band names for us. Obviously ones that are not already taken but something original and unique to us.

    There are four of us in the band, me (bassist/backing vocals), helen (lead vocals), holly (lead guitarist/backing vocals) and emma (drummer/backing vocals).

    Thanks if you can help n thanks even more if you reply,

    thanks again,

    Jenny

    Band Name Generators

    Here are a few that popped up randomly as I was playing with some of the generators:

    The Killing Four (only makes you smile if you're into the blues :) )
    Curious Fate and the Crude Morale
    Classical Trick of the Beginning Shrimp
    Amphibious Cake
    Generating Disaster
    Censored Farewell
    Dreams of Luscious Punks
    Female Crackhead Bodyguards
    Dawn of the Fuzzy Crack Dealers

    If nothing else, they're amusing to play with... and they might give you some ideas.

    Have fun!

    Good luck with the band,
    'rick

    Band names are not something that can be decided by other people. Trust me. My first band went through 4 names before we settled on CharlieDontSurf. The band i play in at school has the most god-awful name i've ever heard but we haven't thought of anything else yet. meridius. We don't play death metal, it's pretty straight forward rock. I don't want to be meridius, but we haven't ocme up with anything better.

    While we're waiting for Golden Boy to make his traditional suggestion, I have a list of band names that I posted in another thread. It was an abridged version of a frighteningly long list of suggested names for a band I was in in the '80's and '90's. We finally settled on Fuzzy Logic. But we went through a lot of choices to get there.

    I like to look through the cable TV guide for movie titles to use as band names - the older the better... You can either adopt them directly, or vary them a bit to suit you...

    If you ask for band name help on an internet forum you'll only get humorous and useless ideas. For example,

    Pugburst
    Goatwaitress
    Intergoating
    Hungry Hungry Huns
    Beauty Only Offers Bitter Sorrows (this would make for great band shirts)
    Goat With Gout
    Dachshundsturm
    Eelstorm
    Stormgoat
    Steamgoat
    Steam-Powered Wolves
    Snakesnacks
    Battle Cattle
    In My Pants
    Quaint Gristle
    Yakshaft
    Hawkspleen
    Trollspleen
    The Texas Separatist Paramilitary Marching Band

    "Bleeds Like An Elvis"?

    No, I wouldn't invent a name for you - it's much nicer if you can come up with one yourselves. I think a band name needs to be such that there's a cool story to be told. Hey, if you ever get famous, every reporter is gonna ask "how'd you get your name?" - and there's better to be a better story than "well.. a bunch of internet nerds came up with it.." ;)

    But if you come up with a good name on your own, we'll make up a story for how you came up with it so you can tell reporters some day.

    I'm thinking it will include jive talking robots and drag queens from outer space.
     
  19. Hi,
    My band are currently toying with the names of:

    Martyred Youth (Sort of anti-war statement, Not my idea)
    Rollem Leinad (My name backwards :) )
    Donkey Punch (Which is where you...actually won't post the details)
    Dapper Dan and the Depressed Ducks (Don't ask)
