    me and my band play a bit of heavy metal(metallica limp bizkit) and a bit of Punk(pennywise) and we are trying to come up with a Band name But it is failing miserably. if you could help me come up with some band names for me/us i might try and get you backstage when we get our first gig

    -Twisted Ladder
    -GCF (greatest common factor)
    -Steel*random name,animal,etc*

    That was the best I could do. sad huh.
    I wouldn't just do what everyone seems to be doing and say 'random object+random Number'

    If you go to www.musiciansfriend.com and go under the Fun or FunStuff section, there's a song/band name generator. Haven't used it, so I can't vouch for whether or not it sucks.

    Do they really matter?

    It sure does when your band is just getting going. Its like a mantra to chant, to get you ready for a show.

    Here are some band names to consider for a hardcore/new metal type band.

    Chicken finger
    deaf o matic
    hot tush (70s reference for a girl band)
    value not found
    hoof and mouth (if your from England)
    super certification
    complete satisfaction (day job band)
    flowery undefeated consistent kickboxer
    phy zappa crapa (college radio band)
    L.D.E.F.F. (last ditch effort for fame)

    bizalicka (cuz you like limp and metalica)

    don't kill yourselves over the name, I found that fans generally grow to love the name over time, but are instantly drawn to your sound.
  7. Just off the top `o me head.....

    Stinkfinger(I know a rip off of Badfinger and Goldfinger but a kewl punk name none the less!)

    Fishwife(and older term for a nag[my ex-wife])

    Hagfish(another name for Lampery I think)

    Koff Syrip Junkies(This one came to me when I was suffering from Bronchitis and swigging codine cough syrip)

    Ballbreaker or Backbreaker(could refer to an ex or a wwf guy?)

    Drugstore Cowboyz(from the flick w/ Matt Dillon)

    Bitchslap(...need I say more?)

    You realize if you use one of them thar names I effed don`t you? :D

    Good Luck with the band!

    the way to go about it is to; look at things in your area pub, club, bars etc....try and get name shcools even...i mean what the name...The Grange?
  9. just throw a couple words together that have nothing to do with eachother:

    27" Metric Toilet
    Arsen Ice Space
    Flaming Ding Bat
    Dung Beatles of 1286

    or be like oldies bands and use useless objects:
    The Ashtrays
    The Paper
    The Reading Lamps

    and so on and so on...

    yeah that thing comes up some really complicated names. I typed in "fear" and "soul" and it came up with "fear soul" Really complex. And it had "Fat creamy hippo and the Guy who has a fear of bread"
    remember im still open for suggestions
  13. BITCHSLAP!!!!!!! Don`t you know a solid gold name when you hear it?! lol :)

    Stick with Soulwound,that is a kewl name.It has depth yet minimal offense.....

    p.s.did I mention I still like the "Bitchslap"idea? Z
