    the un-readables?

    the run-ons?

    take a breath?

    the no-caps?

    grammar explosion?



    j/k It's hard to name a band you know nothing at all about.

    The Post-op Trannsexuals.

    Don't ever play the South.
     
  6. Well I can't really give a suggestion due to the fact that A) I have'nt heard you, but mainly I don't even know what kind of music you play... That would help...
    If you are rock how about:
    Anatomy of Souls?
    or
    Sedated Lamb?
    Sadomasochism?
    Hmm? Good..? Comment's anyone..?
     
  7. "Use the Search Button"--that has some promise--mind if I steal that one?
     
  8. WHAT!! None of mine? fine then!...

    Cereal Killers
    Magnum Orafice..?
    Ahhh, I give up....

    Yes, as long as you don't form a screamo band.

    I remember, back in the day, Peter McFerrin's little group was called Bombard the Headquarters. I always thought that was a really cool name. Maybe you could e-mail him and ask if he'll let you use it. Or not, it would just be courteous.

    The Caravandals.


    Are you a punk band? Your members could all change their last names to Dan and you could be known as DANARCHY!

    Try this link. A fellow TB'er named Dormio posted this a couple months back. Just type in the style of music or any word and it kicks out a ton of suggestions!

    Perhaps this might not go over,depending on the P.C. level of the audience:

    Groove Fahtwa and the Goodtime Jihad singers...

    I also would consider:

    Dirty Steve

    Wasted Potential(t.m.)

    How about "that band?"
    Imagine this:
    Person A: "Have you heard of That Band?"
    B: "Who?"
    A: "That Band"....

    Damn you burned me, I got nothing. :D


    How 'bout:

    Charred Cub Scouts
    Eight Pound (lb) Balls
    Slick Dic Willy and the Sloppy Seconds
    Wishbone and the Undescended Testicle
    Ape Flung Poo
    The Swizzle-stick Peehole Interaction Group
    The Gloryhole 4 Jazz Esemble
    Four Men On Stage Playing Crappy Music That No One Likes

    Those last two could be altered if you had more than or less than four members
