Band Names

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by gallienkrueger, Dec 19, 2003.

  1. hello my band is having a hard time thinking of a name. our current named is Defused, which we think is a ****ty name. We need a name to suit a rock band that sounds like 3 Doors Down, Hoobastank, Dave Matthews, and the used.
  2. Don't know if these will help. Just some band names I'd love to see.

    Joanie Loves Convulsions
    The Shoe Bombs
    Sometimes Y
    Loose Nut (preferably for a Black Flag tribute band)
    The Flunkies
    Ay pa!

    Ok, I'm in bad band name hell myself, but it was already the name before I joined so I can't really change it. (The Reflectors)

    So I donate to you some of my faves:
    (i love the "..and the..." names, starred ones are the best IMHO)

    Crankenstein (one I came up with for an 80s/90s rock cover band)
    Eyeless (one I tried to use in high school)
    Speedy Fiction and the Sleet
    Natural Vapor and the Gazpacho Bubble**
    Skintight CreepCrest
    Frosty Tron
    Sugar Fart
    Jelly Beach
    Secular Mayo*
    Extra-Strength Paper*
    Dumping Stick and the Painted Forehead
    Inflatable Vomit
    Lubricated Jerky
    Dead Bread
    Solid Yogurt and the Teeth***
    Axis Resistance
    Grasping Tension and the Pulpy Junk

    hope this helps!

    my old band almost went with Cystic Duckstump, don't worry we didn't use it, you can have it.
  12. i still think The Three Stanking Used sounds the best out outta all of these.

    my band (drummer, singer, bassist, me (lead bass, guitar if needed) is called "Only Mortal" which me and the singer and the drummer dont want cause it sounds like some kind of metal band, and we are going for more of a funk/rock/reggae sound

    Back in the day I played with a project that played every Wednesday under a different name. Some samples:

    Gorilla Jones
    Coriolanus and the Asstronauts
    Grandpa's Wrinkly Finger (the female lead singer suggested this one!) :eek:

    There's all of the good ones I can think of for now...
