    Got a really unimaginative (inimaginative?) band, and we can't think of any catchy names which havn't already been taken.

    We're kind of an indie (has to begin with "The"! ;)), rocky, poppy group.

    Any ideas?
  2. Hi,
    How about:

    Donkey Punch
    Fish Hook
    Captain Chair and the Jarheads
    The Weasels
    Penguin Electricity and the Shimmering Banshee
    The Ape of the Futile

    These were made using www.Bandnamemaker.com. except the top two. Which are from conversations with strange people.

  4. The Marmot and the Wicker Basket
    Fishes in the Fall
    God's Broccoli

    I thought those all up...weird? Yes. :)

    When I was a kid, I thought "ToeJam" would be funny.

    We're trying to come to a good name, for my band... we have one now, but its HORRIBLE. Sort of a placeholder, in the big scheme of things. Some of the names were trying on, are all good... but none are great.

    This is can be frustrating.

    How about Hungarian Hungarian Hippos, then? Or Hungry Hungry Huns?

    Make a list of all the band names that have made you go "damit, I wish I thought of that one first" and try to rip them off... I mean use them for inspiration. Works for me, though it tends to result in names such as Sex Without Goats.
  13. The BIRP (Band playing Indie-Rock-Pop)?

    Call the band Ass. That way when your records are on the radio people will say, "what song is that" ? And someone else will say, "I'm not sure, but it sounds like ASS"

    :bag: :D

    We came up with this one. We didn't use it, and my son didn't use it, and we're not in Cali or NYC, so Texans find it odd, but I love the way it sounds...

    I was out-voted in the last band I was with, and I'm still peeved about it.

    ...So you can have it.


    There ya' go; you're welcome.

    But Wait! That's not all! ...Last time I checked, "moonmobile.com" was available.

    Dang.. Now you made me laugh out-loud at work again.

    I'm going to get busted for Talkbass one of these days. If they fire me, maybe that'll be the sign that I should just switch careers, and join a touring band.
